Is dentistry considered experimental medical treatment?
1
We are a legitimate licensed dental office in Mexico who has served thousand of patients over the course of 15 years, yet our ads are labeled as experimental and speculative despite simple headlines like "Dental Implants | Dental Veneers." Could someone explain to me why this is happening please?

Dental implants are OK, a well established dental procedure;
Dental veneers - - experimental

 In what sense are dental veneers experimental? Many patients with extensive damage to their teeth come in for this procedure. It is a STANDARD dental treatment at every single general dentist office in the United States. If this is not understood, see the American Dental Associations Journal Article Here:  https://jada.ada.org/article/S0002-8177(14)65062-5/fulltext


Modern dental veneers have been in use since 1959: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Veneer_(dentistry)

If that is not enough, consider that veneers are covered by dental insurance. That alone should justify they this is not an "experimental" procedure.

I agree.  However
Do you want to challenge Google on that? We don't set the Policy; We try to help users to interpret /understand the Policy
You can send feedback to Google, should you wish to challenge it; This would not help to showcase your ads.
Should you wish to advertise -  you should comply;

 Thank you for the reply. My issue is that dental offices in the United States run Google ads for veneers, so clearly "veneers" are not the issue. Perhaps there is another unstated issue leading to the disapproval?

Google looks at your entire site for policy issues. It goes beyond what you are advertising.

This is a screenshot of a random veneer search on google for Veneers TX. TX is an abbreviation for "treatment plan" but also happens to indicate Texas as well.

Veneers won't be the problem, please share your website URL, it will be something else on your site.

When I looked into this when the Policy was introduced,    veneer  - as part of implants procedure  - was allowed. Veneer as a stand-alone procedure  (aesthetic) - was not allowed;
As suggested: Share the website;

BTW Veneers never go with implants in dentistry. They are completely separate restoration techniques.
