I'm sorry to hear that you've been given this misinformation. There is absolutely no link between getting veneers and the need for dentures. I would recommend that you see an experienced cosmetic dentist for a complete evaluation to determine your options, and always look at before and after photos when choosing your dentist. They will give you a good idea about what you can expect. Good luck and I hope this helps. Follow me if you have more questions.

Some dentists aren't very good
A well placed veneer, properly designed, is actually a stronger and more durable solution than leaving a tooth alone. It is not bulletproof, so care is still needed, but to say veneering a tooth is absolutely dooming it is specious and suggests you need to find a new dentist.
