When you are not happy with the esthetics or function of your teeth, you may be an ideal candidate for a full mouth evaluation and treatment. Every case is different. You may have broken, loose, or missing teeth, and you may not be able to chew properly. You may simply feel self-conscious about your smile and want a dramatic change.
Comprehensive dental care begins with a complete examination. You must be willing to honestly share your most serious concerns about your teeth and smile. After taking full face extraoral photographs and intraoral pictures, our staff will also update your radiographs and 3D imaging as needed. With your chief concerns in mind, our doctors will custom-design your smile for optimal function and esthetics.
If you’re considering a full mouth reconstruction, here’s what you should know before you get started.
One option for a complete restoration of your teeth is a smile makeover. The process begins with some photographs and images that are used to create a plan for treatment that will result in the look you want. The process could involve any of the following procedures:
- Teeth whitening
- Instant teeth (an immediate solution to replace a whole arch of broken and missing teeth in a single life-changing appointment)
Before your smile makeover can take place, you may need some restorative procedures such as provisional crowns, fillings, or even root canal therapy. Restoring your dental health is always a top priority, in line with creating that glamorous smile you have always wanted.
Another option for a full mouth restoration is Instant Teeth. Instant Teeth is a complete set of prosthetic teeth that can be placed in a single day. You can have your existing teeth completely replaced and go home the same day with a whole new dental implant-supported smile.
Instant Teeth are implant-supported dentures. Dental implants are placed as anchors to hold a complete arch of teeth in place. These prosthetics are fixed in place as opposed to traditional dentures that are removable. You won’t have to worry about messy adhesives or dentures that slip out of place. Fixed dentures can only be removed by your dentist.
Another benefit of implant-supported dentures is that the implants are embedded in the jaw bone, which helps to prevent bone loss and the sunken look that results from it.
