Does the patient have any other issues from TMJ, neck or facial pain, ringing of the ears,headaches, or sleep apnea? Is this the result of a misaligned bite?

                           Dr. Konig explains, “Restoring the teeth to a bad or misaligned bite is not always a good option.”

These are questions that need to be addressed prior to restoring a smile with a non-surgical facelift with dentistry or smile makeovers.  Many patients ask if porcelain veneers can fix the cosmetic dentistry issues.  Yes they can, however, if the functional problems are not addressed, many times the dentistry will not be able to withstand further damage.

Sometimes it is best to look at the whole picture for best long term results.
