Sometimes, the function or appearance of a smile can be improved with just one or two simple treatments, such as dental crowns, veneers, or a dental bridge. There are some patients, however, who have suffered from multiple dental issues or injuries and will require more comprehensive treatment to restore the look and/or function to their mouth. At All Care Dental by the Sea, we are proud to offer Full Mouth Reconstruction in Port Hueneme, CA, to patients who require extensive treatment in order to achieve a beautiful, healthy smile.
Just as it sounds, full mouth reconstruction is the rebuilding and/or replacing of all of the teeth in a patient’s mouth. It takes esthetics into consideration when planning out the restorative treatment for a patient in order to effectively improve the health and function of the mouth as well as how attractive it is.
Patients who have multiple imperfections or dental issues in their teeth may want to consider a full mouth reconstruction. This could include having multiple missing teeth (due to injury or decay), several teeth with large fillings that may be failing or showing signs of decay, cracked or broken teeth, or teeth that have become badly worn from teeth grinding or other habits. There are also certain conditions that may affect the health and/or appearance of the teeth, for which reconstruction can be beneficial.
Unlike a “smile makeover,” which only addresses the appearance of a smile, a full mouth reconstruction will actually improve chewing efficiency. Treatments used to do this include onlays, crowns, bridges, dentures, and/or dental implants. By building up and strengthening the teeth to make chewing easier, the improved teeth can also allow patients to speak more clearly. Orthodontics may also be used to straighten the teeth, if necessary.
