Common Questions About Full Mouth Reconstruction

Question: How does the doctor decide what procedures I need?

Answer: First, we will need to look at your smile. We will perform a thorough examination of your teeth, gums, and even your jaw joints to assess the health of your smile. From there, we can decide what procedures will be necessary to return your smile to optimal health and beauty.

Question: How extensive is a reconstruction?

Answer: That is a case-by-case determination. For some, a reconstruction can be somewhat conservative, relying mainly on fillings or whitening. For others, the procedure can be extensive, especially if multiple teeth need repair and/or replacement.

Question: What cosmetic issues can you address?

Answer: We can address issues with the color and shape of the teeth with lifelike restorations, including corns and veneers. We can also remove discoloration with teeth whitening or close gaps between teeth with dental bonding. For facial esthetics, we can also use Botox and dermal fillers.

Question: What restorative issues can you repair?

Answer: We can fix broken, chipped, or cracked teeth. If necessary, we also have multiple options for replacing a missing tooth, including lifelike dental implants. If you would like to learn more about our restorative and cosmetic treatments, then contact our team today.
