Are You a Candidate for Full Mouth Reconstruction?

Full mouth reconstruction is a procedure like a smile makeover, and it can produce amazing results. Overall, full mouth reconstruction in Newcastle aims to ensure you receive a beautiful smile that enhances your facial features, but equally importantly we want to make sure you have teeth that function correctly, and that your dental health is the best possible.

What Type of Treatments Are Used during Full Mouth Reconstruction?
The type of treatments used during full mouth reconstruction varies tremendously. For example, if you just need your smile refreshing, treatment could be as straightforward as removing ageing fillings and replacing them with cosmetically appealing tooth coloured fillings, perhaps combined with a professional teeth whitening treatment. However, your treatment plan can include more advanced procedures such as teeth straightening using the very latest invisible braces from Invisalign, or restoring missing teeth using the most advanced dental implant treatments in Clarington.

Other treatments that may be typically used during full mouth reconstruction include all-ceramic crowns and bridges, as well as porcelain fillings for larger cavities and where something a little stronger is needed than a conventional composite resin white filling. Maybe you’d like a cosmetically perfect smile? In that case, porcelain veneers could be just the thing you’ve been looking for. These cover up the front surfaces of your teeth, masking imperfections like small chips, cracks, discolorations or worn areas.

Where to Start?
If you are interested in full mouth reconstruction or perhaps a smile makeover, it’s best to schedule an initial consultation with us here at West Bowmanville Family Dental.

Also, to spend a few moments thinking about how you would like to change the appearance of your teeth so you can discuss your aims and desires with our dentist.

The dentist will need to assess your dental health during your consultation, and they will want to talk to you about your medical health, in case it could affect any procedures suggested in your treatment plan. Any dental problems must be addressed because it is crucial to restore your dental health, and this will help ensure the outcome of your full mouth reconstruction lasts longer.

Planning Your Treatment
Once a dentist has all the relevant information, we can begin to plan your full mouth reconstruction which can be pretty exciting! We use a combination of digital smile design technology alongside our digital scanner to create virtual images of your teeth which are digitally adjusted to show you how your new smile could look like once your treatment is complete. It’s an extremely useful tool because it allows you to get involved with planning your dream smile. Once you are happy with the images, we can work closely with our dental lab to create your beautiful and fully functional smile.

How Long Does Treatment Take?
The length of treatment can vary enormously. For example, if you only need to have some fillings renewed or perhaps would like a new crown or a tooth whitening treatment, your new smile might be completed in a matter of just a few weeks. Other procedures such as Invisalign invisible teeth straightening or dental implants will take longer but can be well worth the additional effort and time required.

Lots of people will plan these types of treatments in preparation for a major life event, and where this is the case, it’s best to allow plenty of time. That way, you can get the treatments you really need or desire without having to rush.
