tiled over tiled now faucet handles wont fit on

I just finished tiling over old tile. The old tile was in perfect shape just outdated color (the shower was used very little). I used advice on this board on how to prep the old tile, etc.....

It has the old 3 handles (hot/cold/shower control). I went to put the faucet handles back on and the valve stem is not out far enough now. Can I buy new valve stems that are 3/8" of an inch longer?

Kinda hard to tell from here but...

It should be possible to get longer stem valves or stem extenders.

I'm guessing that there's no way to know the mfg. and model so the best bet may be to remove the valve and take it with to the plumbing store.

Good luck.
