Find out if full-mouth restoration is right for you.

What is full-mouth restoration?Full mouth restoration

Sometimes referred to as full-mouth rehabilitation this treatment plan is designed to extensively rebuild and restore your entire smile. Restoration involves a variety of different dentistry options including general, cosmetic and restorative. We may even work with oral surgeons, periodontists (gum specialists) and endodontists (tooth pulp specialists) who can provide specific expertise for certain areas of your smile.

Who may benefit from full-mouth restoration?

While those with minor dental issues can often turn to one or two cosmetic treatments from their Colorado Springs dentist to restore their smile, for those with more extensive damage a full-mouth restoration provides the results they want. You may want to consider full-mouth reconstruction if you are dealing with many of these issues:

  • Significant tooth loss due to decay or trauma
  • Teeth that have incurred damage or injury
  • Teeth that have been worn down due to grinding or consuming certain foods and drinks
  • Jaw or facial muscle pain

What should I expect when I get full-mouth restoration?

The first step is for your Colorado Springs dentist to examine your smile to determine which dental treatments are right for you. We will examine the health of your teeth, gums, joints and jaw muscles, as well as the esthetics of your smile. We will also take impressions and X-rays.

Once we have thoroughly examined your smile we can start to create a detailed treatment plan that is tailored to your needs and treatment goals. A combination of non-surgical and surgical treatments may be recommended including dental contouring, crown lengthening, dental restorations (e.g. dental bridges or implants), braces or bone grafting. Full-mouth restorations can take many months and even years in order to complete all the necessary treatments. Remember that a beautiful smile takes time!
