While reconstructive procedures are great for improving your smile, they can also contribute greatly to the over all comfort of your mouth, reducing pain and making it easier to chew.
A reconstructive procedure is any restorative procedure that involves replacing or repairing broken or missing teeth, bones, or tissue. This can include full mouth reconstruction, dental implant restorations, TMJ treatment, dental bridge placement, dental crown placement, inlays and onlays, and replacing old worn or broken fillings.
If severe dental problems are causing you discomfort, or if you are not happy with the function or appearance of your teeth, you may be a good candidate for a full mouth reconstruction.
We’ll start by chatting with you to find out what your goals and expectations are. We will then take the time to fully diagnose the issues, and then test, plan and design a treatment plan that addresses your needs and wants.
Cosmetic and restorative procedures (porcelain veneers, dental crowns, bridgework, dental implants, fillings, inlays and onlays) are completed as necessary.
Dental problems such as damaged and worn teeth take away from the appearance of your smile, but can also affect your overall health. Treatment options vary depending on the extent of damage.
Below, you’ll find a few of the options that may be available to you.
Crown: Generally, a crown can be placed over your damaged tooth to strengthen and reinforce it.
Bridge: If there is a gap between your natural teeth, a dental bridge may be used to bridge the gap.
Implants: If you no longer have a natural tooth to which we can secure a crown, a dental implant may be placed in your jaw to create the crown’s foundation.
A full mouth reconstruction is something that you may need for health reasons (though it can also improve the appearance of your smile).
These days, there is a big demand for more ‘beautiful, natural-looking’ dentistry. So, it becomes a little more difficult to actually draw the line between “cosmetic” (elective) procedures and “restorative” (necessary) procedures.
For example, it is now possible for us to treat tooth decay with a tooth-like filling material that looks natural. For those with multiple chemical/material sensitivities it is possible to work with other healthcare providers to test the materials most compatible for you as an individual.
If you need full mouth reconstruction, the materials available today make it possible for us to provide you with durable, functional and clinically sound treatments that also look natural.
