Full Mouth Reconstruction: A Complete Overhaul Of Your Smile

While having an attractive smile can play a large part in your self-esteem and how others perceive you, a full mouth reconstruction does so much more for your health than just give you an ideal smile. Dr. Taylor and our staff at Taylor General & Cosmetic Dentistry have a great deal of experience in full mouth reconstruction and can help you achieve the best results.

Full Mouth Reconstruction VS Smile Makeover

There are some misconceptions regarding the difference between a full mouth reconstruction versus a smile makeover. While some people may use the terms interchangeably, no experienced cosmetic dentists like Dr. Taylor ever would.

A full mouth reconstruction focuses on the overall functionality of your teeth and the supporting gums and jaws. While smiles generally become more attractive when full mouth reconstruction is performed, it is more of a secondary concerned, with the primary focus on helping you to reach better oral health.

On the other side of things, a smile makeover is focused on the aesthetic of your smile, from the overall evenness of your teeth to their whiteness. This can be desirable when you would like to boost your confidence during interactions with others or even when alone, but your oral health needs to be in order before you go into a smile makeover. If you need a full mouth reconstruction, it cannot be substituted with a smile makeover.

When A Full Mouth Reconstruction Is Needed

If you have not yet consulted with our dentist and are unsure if you need a full mouth reconstruction or just a smile makeover, there are some ways you can determine what you need.

  • Extensive damage to teeth – When you have dental damage beyond cavities which extends into many chipped, broken, decayed, and worn-down teeth, you are a good candidate for reconstruction.
  • Jaw deterioration – If you have significant jawbone density loss, misalignment, or old jaw trauma, you may need reconstruction.
  • Gum issues – Many times gum issues can be treated separately from a full mouth reconstruction. But if the gum problems are combined with the above problems, it is best to treat all the oral issues at the same time.

How To Start A Full Mouth Reconstruction

It can be overwhelming to contemplate a full mouth reconstruction, especially as most people considering a reconstruction have been dealing with oral pain for at least several months if not longer. But all you need to do to start this life-changing process is to contact our office and set up an appointment to consult with Dr. Taylor.

During your consultation, Dr. Taylor will discuss:

  • What options you have when it comes to reconstructions such as choosing partial dentures, dental implants, crowns, veneers, and any other potential options.
  • Your personalized care plan. Most dental reconstructions take time to complete as the more extensive reconstruction work cannot be completed in just one visit.
  • How much your full mouth reconstruction will cost. Depending on what you need to have done and what reconstruction options you choose, it can greatly affect the overall cost of your reconstruction.

So, if you are ready to free yourself from your oral pain and overhaul your smile, contact us today for an appointment with the best general and cosmetic dentist in Montana.
