Veneers for underbite?
Porcelain veneers have limits of what they can correct
Options for underbite #DrSoftTouch
A skillful cosmetic dentist should be able to correct a very minor underbite with porcelain veneers. If the underbite is more moderate to severe, like yours, then jaw surgery or braces are the only remedy. I would recommend seeing an orthodontist to determine your options. Good luck and I hope this info helps you. Follow me if you have more questions.

Underbite Correction without surgery
Yes, underbites can sometimes be corrected without surgery with full-mouth restoration using porcelain veneers and/or crowns. You will need a comprehensive evaluation and bite analysis by a highly skilled dentist or prosthodontist to determine if you are a good candidate for full-mouth restoration with veneers/crowns. Looking at your photos, I think this can be done. I recently treated a patient with a very similar issue and was able to correct her bite with full upper arch porcelain crowns along with vertical bite opening and esthetic anterior crown lengthening. Hope this helps. Good luck.
