They say that a smile is a person’s best accessory, and we here at the Stein Center believe that to be 100 percent true. However, not everyone is fortunate enough to have a cavity-free, damage-free, and pain-free set of pearly whites. For some, a full mouth restoration is exactly what the dentist ordered. That’s where we come in.
What is Full Mouth Restoration?
A full mouth restoration involves a unique blend of dental treatments intended to recreate, restore, and improve your overall oral health and appearance of your smile. Thanks to the countless advances that have taken place in the dental arts over the years, we have a wide variety of procedures available to tackle each patient’s unique dental needs and treat any and all teeth-related imperfections.
So, who’s the best candidate for this type of treatment? If you suffer from any kind dental damage, no matter the severity, you may be an ideal candidate. Full mouth restoration may be necessary if your smile is affected by any or all of the following:
- Tooth decay– Mild to severe tooth decay occurs when both the internal and external structure of the tooth is damaged. If left untreated, a cavity, or hole in the tooth, can form. Typically, we use tooth-colored fillings or dental crowns to reduce the appearance of the cavity.
- Tooth discoloration– Tooth discoloration can be attributed to a variety of factors, from inadequate brushing and flossing to stain-producing foods and drinks, these things can leave your smile looking dull and yellowed. Oftentimes, patients with dental discoloration choose to use dental crowns, veneers, or profession teeth whitening treatments to mask the stains.
- Chipped, cracked, or broken teeth– Large cavities, teeth grinding, biting hard foods, and trauma can all cause a tooth to break. Minor chips can be treated with veneers, while teeth with larger fractures may require more complex treatments like dental crowns.
- Missing teeth– Gum disease, tooth decay, injury, and genetics are common causes of tooth loss. A mouth full of missing teeth can result in difficulty eating and speaking, ultimately impacting your quality of life. Luckily, we offer a multitude of treatment options, including dental implants, for restoring one or more missing teeth.
What Does Full Mouth Restoration Entail?
Based on your own distinct dental needs, our team of highly trained professionals will recommend certain processes as part of your full mouth restoration process. These procedures include the following:
- Bridges– Involves cementing or “fixing” dental restoration in the mouth
- Crowns– Cap that is placed over a tooth
- Dental implants– Artificial teeth implanted with metal posts
- Composite fillings– Natural tooth-colored fillings
- Dentures or partials– Prosthetic replacements for missing teeth
- Inlays/Onlays– Fillings designed to bond to a tooth
- Veneers– Thin shells bonded to the front of the teeth
