Full-mouth reconstruction uses several cosmetic and restorative dentistry techniques to replace permanent teeth lost due to injury or decay. To ensure a satisfactory outcome, Impressive Dental Care considers several things, including your hair color, skin tone, and the appearance of your teeth.
After an oral exam, reviewing your dental records, and discussing your goals, Impressive Dental Care develops a custom care plan that aligns with your budget and needs.
No two full-mouth reconstructions are precisely alike. Your Impressive Dental Care provider could recommend:
A crown is an artificial cap that covers a broken or decaying tooth. It restores your tooth to its near-original size and shape, allowing you to bite and chew confidently.
A bridge fills a gap in your smile. By replacing a missing tooth with a fixed bridge, you can reduce the risk of your gums receding and prevent your surrounding teeth from moving out of position.
Dental implants are titanium posts that your Impressive Dental Care provider inserts into your jaw. After the implant placement procedure, the posts fuse with your jawbone, providing a base for crowns, bridges, and implant-supported dentures.
Veneers are shells of porcelain bonded to the front of your teeth. Impressive Dental Care uses veneers to cover minor cosmetic imperfections, like stains or pointy and unusually shaped teeth.
Teeth whitening is a cosmetic procedure using hydrogen peroxide gel to remove stains from the surface of your teeth. Impressive Dental Care offers two kinds of teeth whitening –– in-office chairside teeth whitening and take-home teeth whitening kits.
If you have gum disease (gingivitis or periodontitis), your Impressive Dental Care provider might recommend gum surgery. During gum surgery, your dentist removes a healthy piece of tissue from the roof of your mouth and stitches it over the receding tissue. As your mouth heals, the tissues fuse together, restoring your gums to a healthier condition.
The only way to find out if you’re a candidate for full-mouth reconstruction is to make an appointment at Impressive Dental Care. After reviewing your dental records, an oral exam, and discussing your goals, your provider can develop a custom treatment plan.
