In aesthetic dentistry, Dental Veneers are contraindicated when

the defect to be corrected is very severe or the tooth is practically destroyed. Tooth enamel is eroded due to, for example, bruxism, tooth carving and could be destroyed.
Each tooth should be made separately and sometimes the original tooth must be retouched. You will need to discuss the best choice of materials and veneer cost for you with your dentist.
