What if you have cavities, infections, or even missing teeth? What if you have problems with the shape and color of your smile? In these situations, instead of a single procedure, we could combine several into a full mouth reconstruction. In today’s blog, your Livonia, MI, dentist talks about smile makeovers.
What is a Reconstruction?
This is essentially a chance to make major changes to your appearance, health, and function of your smile, combining general, cosmetic, restorative, and even prosthetic treatments to completely transform your smile. If you have an array of issues with your smile, problems that cannot be addressed with a simple filling or crown placement, then you should consider contacting our team for an exam and consultation, so we can chart the best path forward and allow you to smile with confidence once again!
Planning a Smile Makeover
First, we will talk to you about your hopes for your smile. We then sit you down and take detailed images of your smile with digital x-rays and intraoral camera images. These systems use a fraction of the radiation required for traditional options, and provide images instantly chairside, so we can walk you through the diagnostic process. We then assess the factors behind your poor oral health with greater precision and accuracy. This information allows us to plan your treatment and choose the options to best correct your smile’s many issues.
Combining Treatment Options
We have general treatment, such as cleanings and scaling and root planings, as well as custom oral appliances. These allow us to address periodontal problems, TMJ disorder, bruxism (teeth grinding), or even sleep apnea. Our cosmetic treatment allows us to focus on esthetics, removing stains with teeth whitening, or reshape teeth and closing gaps between them with bonding, contouring, and porcelain veneers. We could also look at correcting poor alignment with plastic trays. Gum contouring could even let us reshape your gum line!
For restorative concerns, such as decay and infection, or damaged teeth, we could use custom-made crowns to rebuild the structure and prevent further decay or infection. If you have missing teeth, then we can offer bridges, removable dentures, and with dental implants, fixed prosthetics that can last for decades to come. If you have any questions about how your full mouth reconstruction could involve, or if you would like to schedule your next visit, then contact our team today to learn more. A stunning smile is still possible!
