Full mouth reconstructions are multi-procedure treatment plans that combine a number of cosmetic and restorative treatments to improve both the health and appearance of a patient's smile. These types of treatment plans are often necessary when patients have suffered from chronic tooth damage, worn-down teeth, and missing teeth.
Benefits of Full Mouth Reconstruction
Full mouth reconstructions can treat multiple dental problems at once, improving your smile's appearance as well as your oral health. For example, if you're missing several teeth, a dental bridge can fill in your smile's gaps. If your teeth are out of alignment, braces can straighten your smile. A full mouth reconstruction can also improve your oral health by treating gum disease and tooth decay.
For a full mouth reconstruction, our dentist creates a comprehensive treatment plan. We'll explain your treatment plan to you in full detail, ensuring you understand what treatments you're receiving and why.
Full Mouth Reconstruction Options
Full mouth reconstruction is an extensive treatment plan that can correct a number of dental issues. The treatments usually include:
Dental implants are a permanent procedure that replaces all of the teeth in the upper or lower jaw. It can be used for people that are missing most or all of their teeth on either their upper or lower jaw.
A dental bridge is a restoration that replaces missing teeth by forming a bridge of an artificial tooth, called a pontic, between two adjacent teeth. The pontic is held in place by crowns placed on the adjacent teeth.
Dental bridges can be a good option for patients who are missing a tooth or several teeth in a row and prefer to use a restoration that is fixed in place. Dental bridges are also a good option for patients who do not have many teeth left, as dental bridges only rest on two teeth.
Dental crowns are used to cover teeth that have been damaged by decay or trauma. A crown fits over the remaining part of the tooth, making it strong and giving it the shape and appearance of a natural tooth. Crowns can also be used for cosmetic purposes to alter the shape or color of a tooth.
Porcelain veneers are thin, tooth-shaped shells that attach to the front of your teeth. The porcelain mimics the natural translucency of tooth enamel, so they look incredibly natural and realistic. Porcelain veneers are custom-made to fit your teeth, and your dentist will design them to complement your smile.
