In brief: No
It may not be safe for every one & also there are many causes for tooth decay.

In brief: Depends
This really depends the realistic expectations of the patient, and the realities of a patient's 'bite' position, clearance , and if grinding/bruxism is an issue.
. Good Luck!

In brief: Not good 4 everyone
If a patient already has crowns on his/her teeth, if there's large fillings present, if there's significant wear on any of the surfaces, there may be other restorations that are better. I also wouldn't recommend them for girls under 18 y/o & for boys under 21 y/o because their mouths are still changing.
Also if there's missing teeth, other options would be better to explore. Consult w/ a dentist.

In brief: Depends
The extent of decay/ cavities may dictate you need a crown instead of a veneer.
Also, if you have a very malposed tooth, for example, a very labioverted or tilted toward the lip lateral incisor, you may need orthodontics first before veneer or you may have to get a crown, but always choose the most minimally invasive route!

Ask your dentist if your teeth are a good candidate.

In brief: Perhaps not...
This depends on the condition of their teeth and gums.
Most people can get veneers. I would see a dentist for the most specific answer for you.

In brief: Veneers for Anyone?
Veneers can work for many people, but not everyone.
Some bite problems can cause durability issues or fracturing. Some people need many veneers to correct their problems and this can become unreasonably expensive.
