Full Mouth Restoration

Full mouth restoration

For some patients, major corrections are needed to restore the appearance and health of their smiles. In these scenarios, we may recommend a full mouth restoration, which encompasses an extensive combination of repairs to the teeth and gums. Very few people require this procedure, but for those who need both structural and cosmetic repairs, a full mouth restoration may be the only way to achieve optimal dental health and aesthetics.

Advanced technology in treatment planning

This can allow Dr. Kleive to provide you with results that offer the best functional and aesthetic results possible.

How does full mouth restoration work?

Whether you’re interested in this procedure to alleviate the effects of an accident, injury, wear and tear, or other dental problems, we’ll begin by completing a thorough dental exam to assess the extent of the damage and consider which treatment options will be most helpful.

  • After the exam, we’ll schedule a series of appointments for each step of the reconstruction to meet your needs and your schedule.
  • You’ll remain in control of the entire process—you can make the series of treatments as fast or as slow as you want.
  • Dr. Kleive will advise you of the next steps and best practices each step of the way.  If you have questions, please ask!

A full mouth restoration may involve dental implants, dental bridges, or Invisalign, as well as cosmetic procedures like porcelain fillings, porcelain veneers, or tooth whitening. Because every client is different, we customize each full mouth restoration to fit their individual needs and priorities.

Initially, provisional restorations were fabricated for Janel’s front teeth so that we could address infections and bite issues that she was experiencing. We then used Invisalign to improve the positions of Janel’s lower teeth.

Black Mountain Dental FAQs

Is full mouth restoration like a smile makeover?

Full mouth restoration may include a smile makeover, but it is a much more involved process that also considers underlying dental health issues. A smile makeover is a cosmetic procedure that is usually performed only after any health problems, such as gum disease or broken teeth, have been treated.

Who is a good candidate for a full mouth reconstruction?

Patients who have extreme wear and tear on their teeth, or who have suffered an accident, injury, or damage from serious gum disease are good candidates for full mouth restoration. It’s also a viable solution for certain types of congenital defects.

What’s the advantage of a full mouth restoration compared to just having several separate treatments?

With a full mouth restoration, it’s possible to schedule several treatments for the same tooth or area in one appointment, minimizing the time you’ll spend in the dentist’s chair and eliminating the necessity of multiple shots of anesthetic. If you have fears about dental work, scheduling all appointments in one coordinated group of sessions prevents redundancy and makes it easy for your dentist to work as painlessly and efficiently as possible. Even if you want to extend the schedule, it still makes sense to plan all reconstructive work in one sequence to save time and money while eliminating anxiety.

How long will the results last?

Full mouth restoration is a long-term solution that provides all the treatment and support you need to ensure that your teeth will stay strong and healthy for as long as you need them.
