What are Full Mouth Reconstructions?
A full mouth reconstruction, which is more commonly called a smile makeover, is a treatment that involves completely revamping a patient's smile. Unfortunately, smiles can become dull or unsightly over time, whether this is caused by bad habits or chipping or losing a tooth. Makeovers are personalized to the people who are having it done. You may need one or two procedures to completely restore your smile while someone else needs four or five.
Why would a full mouth reconstruction be needed?
There are both cosmetic and restorative benefits to having a smile makeover done. For instance, restoring your smile can improve your confidence and have you feeling better about yourself. For people who are missing tooth and who have them replaced, it'll make eating and chewing more comfortable. You can feel confident showing off your smile after it's been restored and reconstructed.
What makes someone a candidate for a full mouth reconstruction?
The best way for us to determine if you might benefit from a smile makeover is with an exam. This allows us to see if you need reconstruction and if so, which procedures are right for you. Depending on the type of work that needs to be done, you can expect to undergo treatment for several weeks or months from start to finish. Most makeovers are ideal for adult patients who are healthy enough to undergo these treatments.
What happens during Full Mouth Reconstruction?
The process starts with a consultation. We get to know you and your unique needs to see what type of work has to be done. We then schedule you to begin treatment according to your goals. Some of the more common procedures performed during reconstruction include dental implants, bonding, whitening, crowns, bridge work and orthodontic treatment. Depending on what needs to be done, you can expect to undergo treatment for anywhere from just a few weeks to several months.
