Veneers versus fillings: I have several teeth in which the enamel of the outer, lateral surfaces have worn away leaving concave pockets.
These areas have been repeatedly treated with porcelain fillings (possibly a porcelain bonding-but I'm not sure). These fillings would only last 9-12 months and then would be worn away again. I do not have GERD or an acidic diet, nor do I grind my teeth. Only certain teeth are affected.
Would veneers be an option to treat this reoccuring problem? ...Visitor from CA
Something is wrong. The fillings should last years.
Veneers are an option but I do not believe they are your only choice.
Seek 2nd and 3rd opinions, as necessary, to obtain more objective information.
