First off, veneers are not suitable for everyone. Typically you can only get veneers when you’ve been cleared to have no existing or possible dental complications. Veneers could make things worse for you. Secondly, the procedure is very expensive and basically there’s no going back when you have them done so you need to be more than 100% sure about getting them.

Veneers are also not advisable to people who grind their teeth. This could dislodge and damage the veneers, leaving you in pain.
