Procedures used in a full mouth reconstruction
As you can see, full mouth reconstruction can focus on a wide variety of issues that affect one's ability to eat, talk, or even smile. Due to the diversity of the problems that a full mouth reconstruction can address, various procedures may be used. Today, we will cover some of the most common dental procedures that we use for full mouth reconstruction.
- Crowns – Dental crowns are used to cover a damaged tooth entirely. This approach is frequently used after a root canal, a severely cracked tooth, or discolored teeth. While crowns completely cover the upper portion of the tooth that you see above the gum, it helps preserve the tooth's roots that are still intact. While many crowns were previously made of metal and did not match existing teeth, advances in dentistry now allow dentists to match a crown to existing teeth closely. This means that crowns are often undetected when you talk or open your mouth.
- Dental Implants – Crowns can help improve the appearance of an existing tooth. In contrast, dental implants replace a missing tooth. This makes dental implants a great long-term strategy for your full mouth reconstruction.
- Veneers – Porcelain veneers are used to help cover the visible front surface of the tooth. Veneers are often an excellent option for patients who have teeth that have gaps between them or if teeth are discolored. Veneers take advantage of the existing tooth to support a thin piece of porcelain attached to the front. This approach helps to improve one's smile without more invasive techniques.
