Would you like to find out the cause of your TMJ pain, jaw pain, headaches and migraines? Have you seen multiple doctors to find relief and still in pain?

This screening is done using a home portable monitor and you’ll wear it while you sleep, in the comfort of your own home and your own bed.
With Porcelain Veneers Dr. Cook can close gaps between teeth, whiten discolored or stained teeth, repair chipped, broken or worn down teeth, realign and reposition crowded teeth without braces, lengthen or shorten uneven teeth, replace old metal fillings and replace missing teeth.
