Full mouth reconstruction or full mouth restoration includes a series of dental procedures and treatments that are intended to solve several oral health issues and improve the health of one's smile.
If you feel that your smile could use an overall improvement, then we encourage you to visit our clinic and meet with our professional team. We would be happy to discuss your smile goals and offer you a full mouth reconstruction to enhance the appearance of your smile. This full-mouth reconstruction procedure would include the following:
- Dental Fillings
Fillings are a traditional dental restoration process used to treat cavities. They are made from a combination of acrylic and ceramic material that is tooth-colored to match the natural appearance of the teeth. They are widely used to restore teeth affected by cavities and can be placed in their entirety or in sections, depending on the extent of the damage.
- Tooth Extraction
If any tooth has been extensively damaged due to decay or injury, we may have to extract it from the mouth. However, before carrying out the procedure, we will administer local anesthesia to numb the area and prevent pain and discomfort during and after the procedure.
- Dental Implants
Dental implants are prosthetic tooth roots made from metal or ceramic material that serve as replacements for extracted teeth. We would place these implants into the jawbone, where they will fuse with its tissues and act as a stable foundation for a dental restoration such as crowns or bridges.
- Dental Crowns
Dental crowns are ceramic restorations that are used to restore severely damaged teeth to their ideal shape, structure, strength, and functionality. They are used in cases where a tooth has been badly damaged by decay or injury but cannot be restored using dental implants due to lack of jawbone volume.
A bridge is an appliance that is used to replace a missing tooth. It consists of a prosthetic tooth coupled with crowns on either side that hold it in place firmly. The bridge restores your ability to bite and chew food as well as restores your facial appearance by improving your smile's aesthetic appeal. However, if you wish to get this bridge fixed on your tooth within a few days after getting a tooth extracted, we would place it using dental implants rather than bridges.
- Porcelain Inlay or Onlay
A Porcelain Inlay or Onlay is a dental restoration procedure that includes making a mold of your tooth and filling it with porcelain. They are generally used to restore teeth suffering from discoloration or damage. Porcelain inlays can be used to cover the cusp tips and replace missing pieces of the tooth. They are not as noticeable as traditional fillings, as they match the color of your other teeth. Porcelain inlays can also be used to cover the entire surface of an individual tooth.
