I just had 3 front teeth with veneers replaced with crowns I didn't notice till I came home that one has a translucent line @ bottom. What should I do?

Esthetic dentistry: The transluscent line is where the porcelain is less opaque. The shadow from the inside of the mouth shows through. This is why a try-in and asking the patient if everything looks okay before cementation is important.

How long can I expect porcelain veneers to last? I'd really like to get procelain veneers to even out my teeth. How long do they usually last? Is there anything similar that lasts longer? .

Here we go...: To even out the teeth perhaps simply recontouring the teeth artistically is all that is needed. What a great option that can be.

Replaced eventually: Nothing last forever, even well made porcelain veneers.
