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.
The benefits are:
1) Beautiful Smile
2) Protection of exposed root surfaces
3) Easier oral hygiene
4) Balanced bite
5) Non-surgical treatment
