I have a cavity forming under a porcelain veneer. Will your protocol succeed in healing the cavity from within? Or do I need to have the veneer removed?

Just a member here, but from my understanding, teeth are living bone which utilize elements from both the inside as well as topically. I personally don't know if proper remineralization would happen with the veneer still on the tooth, however you could begin the protocol and continue to be monitored for the cavities progress. Having said that I question the viability of your tooth in the future with a veneer that has already allowed your tooth to be compromised.
