Veneers are used to cover teeth which are worn, damaged, dulled or uneven beyond fixing. They may not be suitable in all circumstances, since the preparation for bonding the veneer to your natural teeth damages it for good. For that reason, it's not recommended for individuals who plan to bleach their teeth, go through orthodontic alignment treatments, or have existing cracks filled with special resin.
Another restriction in the use of veneers is when extensive damage to the existing teeth prevents good preparation. Veneers require a good bond between itself and the tooth, and therefore cannot be used on teeth which are terribly damaged or broken. In these cases, crowns are a more appropriate course of action.
