Full Mouth Reconstruction Q & A

What is a full mouth reconstruction?

A full mouth reconstruction combines cosmetic and restorative dental procedures to improve the aesthetics of your smile and strengthen weak, cracked, or severely decayed teeth. Dr. Cummings may recommend a full mouth reconstruction if you suffer from:

  • Missing teeth
  • Decayed teeth
  • Misaligned teeth
  • Tooth decay
  • Malocclusion (irregular bite)
  • Gum disease
  • Receding gums
  • Tooth gap
  • Severe tooth discoloration

Reconstructive procedures help restore your smile’s appearance and improve any problems you may experience chewing or speaking.

What is included in a full mouth reconstruction?

A full mouth reconstruction may involve one or more cosmetic and restorative procedures to strengthen your smile. Some of the most popular reconstructive treatments include:

Dental veneers

If you have weakened, misaligned, cracked, severely discolored teeth, or tooth gaps, veneers can completely reshape your teeth and mold them into the smile you’ve always wanted. These wafer-thin shells bond directly to your teeth to hide imperfections, reshape your teeth, and protect your smile from further damage. If you opt for this dental procedure, Dr. Cummings will first take impressions of your teeth for the creation of your custom veneers.

Then, depending on the severity of your tooth damage, she will remove some enamel from your natural tooth to make room for the tooth-colored veneers. Once your custom-fit veneers are firmly cemented into place, they will look and function just like the rest of your teeth.

Smile makeover

A complete smile makeover takes advantage of one or more cosmetic and restorative dental procedures to improve your smile and strengthen your teeth. For many patients, this means a combination of restorations, such as dental veneers and dental crowns or teeth whitening. A smile makeover is designed to be both aesthetically pleasing and strengthen your teeth, giving you the healthiest smile possible.

What are the benefits of a full mouth reconstruction?

In addition to restoring your confidence and self-esteem, a full mouth reconstruction improves your overall oral health. Some health benefits include:

  • Improved bite
  • Easier chewing
  • Clearer speech
  • Whiter teeth
  • Gap-free smile
  • Jaw pain relief

A full mouth reconstruction will set you up for a lifetime of healthier teeth. To learn more about your reconstructive options, call Sterling Ridge Cosmetic & Family Dentistry or book an appointment online today.
