How You Can Fully Transform Your Smile
A beautiful smile makes a lasting first impression, and the condition of your teeth is one of the first things others notice about you. What is full mouth reconstruction, and how can it improve your smile and confidence? Continue reading to learn how dental procedures can change your appearance and enhance the way you look.
What is Full Mouth Reconstruction?
Full mouth reconstruction involves a series of dental procedures that rebuild and/or replace the patient’s teeth. The procedures can be for aesthetic purposes or address form and function issues.
Often, these procedures are completed when people suffer disease or trauma that has broken teeth, caused an infection, or otherwise affected their oral cavity negatively. When there is severe damage to the gums and/or teeth, it is difficult to eat and drink, which puts a strain on a person’s quality of life.
With full mouth reconstruction, not only do patients regain full function of their mouth, but they often regain their confidence and feel better about showing off their smiles. But, more on that (and the other benefits of full mouth reconstruction) later.
What Does it Entail?
Full mouth reconstruction includes a variety of dental procedures and treatments that work together to improve a person’s smile and mouth function.
Porcelain veneers can be used as part of full mouth reconstruction. Veneers are applied to the surface of the teeth, resulting in improved appearance as well as protection from further damage.
While veneers may not be suitable for all patients, they are ideal for those who suffer from slight damage to the teeth and need to increase their strength without losing their existing teeth. Veneers look natural and are suitable to address chips, cracks, stains, worn-down teeth, and enamel decay.
Teeth whitening is a safe and effective process that helps remove stains and lighten the appearance of teeth, giving you a shining and bright smile.
Crowns and Bridges
Dental crowns are durable teeth coverings that are placed over your teeth. They provide both cosmetic and functional benefits. Crowns can improve the durability of teeth and prevent further damage from occurring. They help give your teeth a more sturdy base and can help you retain the teeth you have, while still appearing natural.
Bridges are a corrective solution for broken or lost teeth. They are a fixed dental restoration option that fills in the gaps and helps restore your bite (and smile). Bridges are a more permanent solution and are attached to your other teeth using dental cement.
Implants are truly a fantastic restorative dental innovation. Not only do they look and feel natural, but they function in the same way as your teeth do. Dental implants are secured into the jawbone and serve as a foundation for a dental crown, bridge, or denture. Dental implants can be used when multiple teeth are missing.
Who is Eligible for This Procedure?
Anybody is a candidate for full mouth reconstruction if they have missing, broken, or damaged teeth, are experiencing tooth decay, or have large fillings. Those who grind their teeth when they sleep or have damage caused by sports injuries are also ideal candidates for this procedure.
Can This Treatment be Customized?
Yes. Depending on the condition of your teeth and gums, this treatment can be customized to include a dental implant, a few bridges to fill in the gaps, or the use of veneers. Your treatment plan depends on the current state of your teeth and the improvements you would like to make.
