Full Mouth Reconstruction: What You Need to Know

Resources Dental Implants, Full Mouth Reconstruction, Crowns

Hi there! I’m Dr. Michael Webster, Owner and Smile Makeover Dentist at Kelowna Dental Centre. Having been at the forefront of cosmetic dentistry for over a decade now, I understand all too well that if you’ve struggled with dental functionality or aesthetic concerns, it can leave you feeling like your dream smile is out of reach.

But rest assured – at Kelowna Dental Centre, we know that no smile is a lost cause.

One service we typically recommend for complex functionality and aesthetic cases—because it packs all of the benefits into a streamlined treatment cycle—is full-mouth reconstruction. A full-mouth reconstruction is a holistically planned restorative dentistry procedure that addresses damaged or missing teeth, jaw alignment, TMJ disorders, bruxism, and even dental diseases such as tooth decay, gum disease, periodontal disease, and other forms of dental parafunction.

In this blog, we’ll work through some of the key concepts that comprise a full-mouth reconstruction and what you, as a patient, can expect from the treatment process here at Kelowna Dental Centre.

Full-Mouth Reconstruction: Assessment and Planning

Every full-mouth reconstruction treatment plan begins with a complimentary in-depth consultation, an essential component of our integrated approach to providing exceptional care. My team and I will use this time to listen and understand your specific dental goals and areas of concern, which will help us map out the stages of a customized treatment plan.

During your consultation, we’ll also perform a comprehensive oral examination, including advanced imaging sessions, to accurately assess your oral alignment, gum health, and jawbone characteristics, allowing us to execute the treatment with remarkable precision.

Collaboration is at the heart of how we achieve the dazzling results you’ll love every day. After all, it’s your smile, your journey, and your ideal results that we’re after!

Full-Mouth Reconstruction: Components

No two full-mouth reconstructions are exactly alike because each comprises a fully customized set of aesthetic and functional dental treatments.

Your personalized plan will ultimately depend on what you aim to achieve through the treatment. Consequently, your full-mouth reconstruction is guaranteed to involve various treatments and techniques that will help us achieve the most precise, successful results.

Some full-mouth reconstruction treatment components include:

  • Dental implants: Dental implants are the only permanent tooth replacement available today. Long-lasting and designed to support natural-looking and feeling smiles, dental implants utilize a titanium or ceramic post “implanted” into the jawbone to anchor a custom single-tooth or multi-tooth restoration.
  • Gum grafting: Gum grafting is pivotal for those experiencing gum recession or thinning. By covering exposed tooth roots and bolstering your gum line, gum grafting revitalizes the appearance of your smile and strengthens your overall oral health.
  • Crowns: Think of a dental crown as a protective cap (or, indeed, a crown) for your tooth. It snugly covers the visible part of your tooth after we’ve carefully removed any decay. Crowns come in a few varieties: metal, known for its durability and ability to handle the rigours of chewing and biting; porcelain-fused-to-metal, which blends seamlessly with your natural teeth for a perfect match; and ceramic, the go-to choice for anyone with metal sensitivities.
  • Veneers: Typically made of porcelain, veneers are materials placed over an existing tooth. They’re used for function and aesthetics, as they can help solve bite-related challenges and bring balance to a smile.
  • Teeth whitening: We use safe, effective, and highly advanced teeth whitening agents to remove stubborn stains. Teeth whitening might be included in your full-mouth reconstruction to enhance your smile’s appearance.
