Welcome .I will do my best to answer your question.I am not a great typist,be patient and feel free to ask if anything is unclear.I am sorry,I don't want to disappoint you but Dr. Chip is not a dentist and the Walgreens link that he sent you is for a product that is used to temporarily cement crowns ,not veneers.Veneers unfortunately have to be etched with acid and a special cement is needed to hold them in place because they have virtually no retention.This is the biggest problem with veneers and there is no quick fix other than to get to a dentist's office.I understand your problem but there is nothing on the market that will hold these veneers in place with any security that it will stay in place
