Yes: They can be reshaped after delivery. Minor changes can be made, like rounding an edge. If they are too long sometimes you can slightly shorten them. Lumineers are very nice for post cementation contorting and shaping.
Dr. Paul Epstein
Dentistry 48 years experience
Yes: The veneers can be reshaped once they are bonded to the teeth. It may only be minimal but it depends on the thickness of the veneer.

They can be reshaped slightly but if there needs to be very much change especially on the front of the tooth replacing it can be a better long term aesthetic solution.

Yes: If the adjustments are minor then they can be reshaped. If the adjustment is large then the veneers may have to be redone. Consult with your dentist.

Yes: Not in every dimension but veneers can be reshaped to make them shorter or smoother.
Dr. Ron E. Bell
Cosmetic Dentistry 45 years experience
Yes and no: If the veneers are composite, then reshaping is easier, and more can be done. If there is porcelain or another lab fabricated material, then minor adjustment or replacement is the best option.

How much would veneers cost to close a gap in front?

Dr. Jake Richards

Variable cost: Depends on your provider. I have seen veneers range from about $500-$900 each and if you just want the gap closed you hopefully only need two. Call your dentist and find out.
