In 2018, there’s no reason to live with a smile that you don’t absolutely love. If you are dealing with serious dental damage, a visit to your cosmetic dentist can help you understand your options and how you can enjoy a happy, healthy, confident smile once again. A full mouth restoration or smile makeover may be just the ticket for your teeth — and the one that is right for you will depend on a few factors. Keep reading to learn more about these popular aesthetic treatments!
What Is a Full Mouth Restoration?
A full mouth restoration is a comprehensive approach to dental problems affecting the form and function of the smile — or, simply put, fixing how the teeth look and how they work. A full mouth restoration goes beyond the cosmetic to improve the strength and stability of badly damaged teeth. It may be recommended for patients who have worn out fillings and crowns, crooked teeth, gaps between teeth, misaligned jaws, facial pain and facial or dental trauma.
Some of the procedures that may be included in a full mouth restoration include:
- Dental implants, which provide a comprehensive tooth replacement
- Crown and bridge for badly damaged or missing teeth
- Orthodontic treatment with ClearCorrect or traditional braces
- Other cosmetic treatments, like porcelain veneers, teeth whitening, and all-ceramic restorations
The total time it takes to complete a full mouth restoration depends on how severe the case is, and how long the patient has lived with the problem(s).
What Is a Smile Makeover?
A smile makeover is concerned with the aesthetics of the smile only. This treatment is reserved for patients with imperfect teeth that they can see in the mirror when they smile. For example, porcelain veneers are a popular procedure for a smile makeover — these thin porcelain coverings mask the appearance of chipped, stained, or slightly gapped teeth.If you have had difficulty with Tooth Whiteners not getting your teeth white enough, porcelain veneers are the answer. You and your dentist can customize the shade to your desire; never needing to whiten again
