Can Porcelain Veneers Be Used With Gum Recession?

Houston Cosmetic Dentist Serving Sugar Land, The Woodlands, Pearland, & Nearby Areas of Texas


There are cases when severe recession is past the point where reasonable periodontal grafting can help or patients do not want major surgery for a multiple number of reasons.  In some cases, porcelain veneers combined with bite alignment can provide an excellent treatment option.  In this case, the recession was a functional problem as the teeth were continuing to wear away with normal function.  There was also a cosmetic issue.  Dr. Konig, uses the term Functional Cosmetic Dentistry to describe these types of cases.
