Why a Greenwood area dentist may suggest a complete full mouth reconstruction
While many patients look at a complete, full mouth reconstruction as something a dentist only does for those with severe problems with their smiles, this is not always the case. These “smile makeovers” can be perfect for Greenwood area patients who struggle with imperfections in their smiles. These imperfections can be anything from staining, spaces between teeth, or breakage of natural teeth. Moderate to severe concerns such as periodontal disease that has wreaked havoc on the smile or missing or extracted natural teeth may also be addressed with full mouth reconstruction.
Restoring the smile can be done with a variety of procedures. First, Dr. Christopher T. Griffin will consult with patients who are interested in undergoing one or more procedures to improve their smiles. During this examination, he will determine if they are appropriate candidates and speak to them about the many solutions that may be used to restore the health and beauty of their smiles. Some of these procedures may include:
- Dental crowns
- Dental bridges
- Inlays and onlays
- Porcelain veneers
- Full or partial dentures
- Dental implants
There are many reasons patients may consider full mouth reconstruction. Patients may be unhappy with the appearance of their smile or may find that it does not function well for speaking and eating. Patients with previous dental work that is damaged or loose may want to replace them while improving the appearance of their smiles. Missing teeth can be replaced and teeth that are broken, worn, or stained may be addressed with a number of different solutions. Patients often consider full mouth reconstruction because they want to feel confident and attractive. This self-esteem boost can make a dramatic impact on their overall quality of life.
