Here’s what you need to know about getting a full mouth reconstruction.
Each Full Mouth Reconstruction is Different
First, it’s important to understand that there’s no one-size-fits-all solution when it comes to restoring your oral health. Each patient is different, which is why our cosmetic dentists in Cascade, Coopersville and Wayland, MI, will create a custom treatment plan that’s tailored to your unique needs. They’ll then walk you through every step of the process so you can know what to expect with your upcoming full mouth reconstruction.
Most Common Dental Procedures
The most common procedures associated with a full mouth reconstruction include dental implants, porcelain veneers, and dental crowns. Some patients may also require some form of orthodontics to correct teeth that are crooked, crowded, or gapped. Our cosmetic dentists are proud to offer both traditional metal braces and Invisalign® clear aligners.
If you’ve lost one or more teeth, you may be a candidate for dental implants. Our dental implant dentists in Cascade, Coopersville and Wayland, MI, would be more than happy to help you explore your tooth replacement options.
A dental implant is a prosthetic tooth root that’s made out of a titanium alloy. Once our dentists embed the implant in your jaw, it’ll fuse to the bone over the course of several months until it’s ready to support an abutment and crown. Together, an implant, abutment, and crown will give you the full function and appearance of a natural tooth.
Please keep in mind that we offer different types of dental implants, from all-on-four dental implants to .
A veneer is a wafer-thin porcelain shell that our are able to bond to the fronts of teeth. You may be a candidate for dental veneers if you have small chips, cracks, gaps, or stains affecting your front teeth. Porcelain veneers are meant to restore teeth with minor cosmetic issues. For this reason, our dentists may recommend a different treatment option if your front teeth have major structural damage.
A porcelain dental crown is like a cap that fits over the entire tooth structure above the gums. Our dentists may recommend dental crowns if you have teeth that are fragile and need to be strengthened. For example, a dental crown may be used to reinforce a tooth with a large chip or crack. Likewise, we also use dental crowns to restore teeth after removing significant decay.
Do you have crooked or crowded teeth? If so, our dentists may recommend orthodontic treatment as the first step in full mouth reconstruction. Depending on your circumstances, we may recommend either metal braces or Invisalign aligners to improve the appearance of your smile.
