I had porcelain veneers done. One of them turned colors. My dentist kept saying they looked fine and color is his specialty. I finally got frustrated and went to another dentist. He said it’s a leaky veneer. I’ve never heard of that. Before I for out more money, I just wanted to make sure it was legit.

Yes, there is such a thing as leaky veneers. It means the bonding is failing on your porcelain veneers.
This allows things to get under your veneers and will cause discoloration.
There is a simple solution to this. It just needs to be re-bonded on, but properly.
Your dentist should do this for free. If he refuses have the other dentist do it and maybe pressure from one of his peers will pressure him into taking responsibility for his failures.
