Thank you for the query.
You said you have pain but havenot specified the area where you have pain as well as the type of pain . If the pain is present in the teeth on which veneers have been placed then it could be severe sensitivity which presents as pain, for this has to be ruled out by taking an x-ray of all the teeth and if any infection persists in the teeth , then root canal treatment has to be performed to get rid of the pain and crown should be placed . Root canal ,when done is followed by a course of antibiotic and analgesics.
See your dentist for further treatment.
Hope this information helps you.

hi and welcome,
Since you got your wisdom tooth removed 2 months backs pain cannot be related to it .i am not clear after reading to your query whether veneering was done on 6 teeth or it was done on 6th no. tooth. anyways Veneering is the process which sometimes can expose the dental nerves to the oral environment which leads to sensitivity to cold and hot and even pain .
i suggest you to visit a dentist and get a x ray examination done of all the veneered teeth to know the exact cause, accordingly tooth canal treatment can be done for the affected tooth and the tooth can be restored permanently by a crown coverage.
take care.

hello & welcome
the symptoms you are presenting here may be because of irreversible pulpitis, sometime when we do veneering in some patients pulp horns are very high & they may get involved.
i will advise you to visit your dentist & go for a x-ray.
only after that further comments can be added.
till then along with pain killer do a course of antibiotic including amoxycilline & metrogyl.
thanks & take care
