Achieve your dream smile with our cosmetic full mouth reconstruction. This bespoke service combines different treatments to create the smile that you desire.
You’ll work closely with your dentist to determine your desired results, and you’ll begin the process with a smile design consultation and a presentation of treatment options. That way, you know exactly what you’re getting, and how it will be achieved. After that, you’ll have input every step of the way, selecting the precise desired shade and shape of your teeth, so you’re sure to end up with the smile you’ve always wanted.
What does a Cosmetic Full Mouth Reconstruction involve?
If cosmetic reconstruction is right for you, we will administer a complete oral exam, checking for any dental health issues, which would have to be dealt with first. These can include problems like cavities, periodontal disease, or basic oral hygiene issues. During that exam, we will take a mold of your mouth, which is then sent to the lab.
Your next appointment will be your smile design consultation. During that appointment, you’ll look at mock-ups of potential results, and select for yourself which smile is right for you. The mold taken at your previous appointment is used by the lab to manufacture mock-ups that can be worn over your current teeth during your smile consultation, giving you a precise sense of what each new possible smile might look like.
Once you’ve selected your desired results, we will begin addressing any oral health issues. Following that, if you’ve opted for orthodontic adjustments, you’ll be fitted with Invisalign, or possibly brackets. If there are any gum issues, we can adjust the height of your gums in the office. For more involved gum conditions, some patients might be referred to a periodontist.
Once your teeth are in arranged as desired, and the gums are where you want them to be, patients will undergo what is call the restorative processes. Those who want whiter teeth will receive whitening treatments until they’ve reached their desired results. Some patients will also consider teeth shaping at this stage.
Typically the final stage will involve installing any necessary crowns, veneers, or fillings. These are determined on a case by case basis, and with the patient’s desired outcome in mind.
Each step in the process is done with your consultation, and can be adjusted based on the look and feel you’re hoping to achieve. You’ll have input with us and the lab, and the goal is never to rush you or push you toward anything you don’t want. Our only goals are your goals, and we will work with you every step of the way to help you achieve your perfect smile.
Who is the ideal patient?
We are looking for any patients currently dissatisfied with their smile. Every reconstruction is a process determined by the patient and provider. No two treatments are exactly alike.
Patients look to cosmetic reconstruction for a variety of issues, from simple whitening to more complex conditions, so the ideal patient is simply one committed to their new smile.
In some cases, the reconstruction process can take several months, and patients will need to be prepared to care for their teeth throughout and after the process, keeping things clean, and seeing their provider every six months for checkups and cleanings. Patients are also often asked to wear a nightguard following reconstruction to protect their smile.
How long does Cosmetic Full Mouth Reconstruction take?
There’s a wide range when it comes to time needed to complete the process. reconstructions can take as little as a few weeks, while other might take more than a year, but the average length is roughly a few months, with multiple appointments necessary to achieve the desired results. Once you’ve determined your desired results, you’ll go over the time needed for your procedure during a consultation with your dentist.
Will people be able to tell I’m getting work done?
No. If temporaries are necessary for your reconstruction, we put in the extra work to make sure they look as natural as possible, especially in the front. You’ll never go home without a temporary, and in most cases the temporaries will look very close to the final results.
Is it painful?
We use standard anesthetizing techniques to make sure any work you’re getting done is as comfortable as possible. However, the appointments necessary for cosmetic reconstruction tend to be longer than your standard dental appointment. Patients will often be at the office for longer than the typical hour or two, and should come prepared for the time commitment.
Will it look natural when it's done?
The results of your cosmetic full mouth reconstruction are determined by your personal goals. Some people desire a natural look, while others want a brilliant white smile with perfectly straight teeth. Whatever your desired look may be, we will work with you to achieve it. You’ll have input every step of the way, testing out mock-ups of a variety of outcomes, with the option to adjust coloring and shape as you go.
Patients often come in with the worry that their outcome won’t look exactly as they hope. The smile design consultation, the mock-ups, and temporaries designed with your results in mind help achieve the best outcome. They also give you a sense of where your smile is headed. Your feedback through the process is critical, and slight adjustments during the process will help guarantee you get results you absolutely love.
What if there’s a problem after my reconstruction?
We ask that our patients visit every six months for regular check-ups and cleanings. You’ll wear a nightguard to protect your smile, but we also insure the quality of our work for up to two years. If your bite is off, or if a crown or a veneer cracks, the office will replace any problem units, provided the damage is the result of our work.
