If I’m using good oral care after getting porcelain veneers. I brush several times a day and floss, but I keep having an unpleasant taste in my mouth. I fear that is also causing bad breath. Could the porcleain veneers be the problem?

Have you spoken to your dentist? Did he run tests? Generally, the symptoms you describe are generally symptoms of decay. If the problem started with your porcelain veneers, it could be an issue of microleakage.
Sometimes the bonding could have some gaps that allow for bacteria to enter and cause decay under your porcelain veneers. This is a serious problem and can cause you to loose a lot more than your porcelain veneers.
A second opinion would not be amiss here. I’d prefer you see an expert cosmetic dentist. Your safest (and best bet) would be to see an accredited dentist with the American Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry.
