For example, many patients wish to straighten their teeth and close gaps. Our dentist believes that your smile should not only look good but complement your facial structure.The goal of cosmetic dentistry is to improve the appearance of teeth that show when you smile and talk. The goal of full mouth reconstruction is more complete because it focuses on restoring the function of teeth, gums, and jaws.As a dental implant dentist, Dr. Hernandez strives to be the best dental health provider he can be. His goal is to provide what the patient wants as much as possible. It is the strength of that relationship and the quality of communication and education that influences the final outcome of nearly any complex treatment.When You Should Consider Full Mouth Dental ReconstructionIf most or all of your teeth require dental work to improve their function and appearance, you may be a good candidate for full mouth dental reconstruction. Our dental office can address concerns that include:
Our practice can also repair or replace older dental restorations or prosthetics that have failed. The attention to detail and high-quality materials we use often provide more durable results than the original work.
Full Mouth Dental Reconstruction Procedures
Hernandez Dental offers several services that can restore the full set of upper and lower teeth.
With this treatment, doctors place man-made tooth roots to support new tooth-shaped crowns. If you need full mouth dental reconstruction, your doctor may recommend attaching a full arch of teeth to the implants instead of individual crowns. For some patients, we can use this “full arch” technique with as few as four implants.Both single crown and full arch approaches can restore the function and appearance of your teeth. Implants also have the benefit of preventing bone resorption: the erosion of bone that can create large gaps in the area of missing teeth. If you have already lost a significant amount of bone, our practice can use bone grafting to reverse these effects.
Crowns, Bridges, and Porcelain Veneers
Some of the patients we treat in our dental office who require full mouth dental reconstruction have a combination of concerns. They may have missing teeth, damaged teeth, and a few interspersed teeth that are still in good condition. In response, we may recommend a collection of aesthetic treatments:
Gum Grafting. If you notice that some of your teeth appear longer than others, you may be experiencing gum recession. Over time, this condition can cause damage to your teeth and potentially lead to tooth loss. A gum grafting procedure can cover the exposed tooth root and restore the aesthetics of your smile.
