Many patients are looking to restore the whiteness of their teeth, but your teeth’s functionality is just as important as appearance. Teeth become weaker over time due to loss of enamel, severe infections, or mouth diseases. Full mouth reconstruction, also known as a “smile makeover”, is a collection of procedures that focus on restoring a large number of your teeth in the top and bottom jaws.
At Terrace Smiles Dentistry, we understand that life gets hectic, which may lead you to miss a few dentist appointments. However, too many damaged teeth can really hurt your self-esteem. In some cases, undergoing full mouth reconstruction may unavoidable due to health concerns. A smile makeover will give you a fresh start, and taking care of your teeth will be easier than ever!
Am I a Candidate For Full Mouth Reconstruction?
If you have a few cracked teeth, full mouth reconstruction is a great way to restore your healthy-looking smile. Those looking to undergo full mouth reconstruction should be visiting the dentist regularly, brush and floss at least once a day, and avoid smoking or using other tobacco products.
What Procedures Can I Expect?
There are a wide variety of procedures involved with full mouth reconstruction. Your treatment plan may include:
- Teeth whitening
- Crowns, bridges, or veneers
- Composite fillings
- Dental implants
- Dentures or partial dentures
- Cosmetic work
How Much Does the Procedure Cost?
The average amount you can expect to pay for this procedure is about $30,000 to $45,000. Many insurance companies can help cover some of the costs, and there are also payment plans available.
What is the Recovery Process Like?
Full mouth reconstruction can be a lengthy procedure. You may feel physically drained afterward, so it’s best to take a day off from work or school. Depending on the number of teeth that needed repair, full recovery could take 3-6 months.
