Veneers: Strictly speaking, veneers themselves do not "cause root canals". However, after receiving veneer treatment, sometimes teeth become sensitive or even painful, and root canal treatment (rct) may be indicated to help. Some teeth have unknown 'stressed' or barely live nerves from past trauma or bad bite. If your tooth is in such a condition, the tooth nerve may die soon after veneers, needing rct.
