I have had porcelain veneers for 21 years, and now suspect that a bacterial/fungal infection has formed underneath them.

I would recommend seeing your dentist for a complete evaluation if you suspect that you have an infection underneath your veneers. Veneer leakage allows bacteria to enter and form decay underneath the veneers. If ignored, substantial tooth structure can be destroyed. If you do in fact have an infection under your veneers, they'll need to be replaced. Good luck and I hope this helps. Follow me if you have more questions.
