When oral function and appearance are affected by systemic disease or damage, full mouth reconstruction may be necessary to improve one’s ability to eat and speak as well as enjoy a better quality of life. At Artistic Smiles, our team approaches each case for full mouth rehabilitation with custom, personalized treatment plans that address one’s unique needs. The goal of full mouth reconstruction is to help patients regain lost oral function, treat disease, and improve the appearance of one’s teeth. For those with cosmetic concerns, full mouth rehabilitation may be necessary to produce a beautiful and uniform smile.
When extensive repair and treatments are needed, a patient may require treatment of varying natures over a predetermined amount of time. For example, if a traumatic facial injury has damaged multiple teeth, patients may need dental crowns, veneers, and dental implants to restore the functionality and aesthetics of a smile. Since this level of treatment is often complex, our team strives to provide excellent patient education and compassionate, reassuring care.
Types of Treatments Used
Restorative treatments are often used for repairing broken and damaged teeth. For example, teeth that have been chipped, cracked, or worn down may require dental crowns or “caps”. Crowns and other restorations can look incredibly natural so that a patient’s smile actually looks better after treatment, too.
When patients have suffered with tooth loss in addition to cosmetic concerns, prosthetics like dental implants and bridges might be recommended to replace missing teeth. Dental implants and bridges will restore more than oral function, they will fill in the gaps of an incomplete smile.
For teeth that are healthy but appear flawed, cosmetic treatments like bonding, or placing porcelain veneers or Lumineers are used to conceal imperfections such as stains, cracks, and chips. With veneers, patients can also achieve a uniform and proportionate smile.
Full mouth reconstruction changes lives. Our dentist can improve the aesthetics and function of a patient’s smile by combining multiple types of treatments over time. Our patients who have had reconstructive care report back to us that they enjoy comfortable oral function and a renewed sense of confidence because the appearance of the teeth and gums is improved. If you are suffering with multiple areas of cosmetic concern or diseased and damaged teeth, we can help.
