Question:
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

Answer:
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.
