Rebuild a Beautiful Smile
Your teeth are designed to last for a lifetime with the right care over the years. Unfortunately, many adults will experience damaged or compromised teeth. Not only can this be a leading source of embarrassment, but it can also impact your quality of life. Simple tasks like chewing can be painful. You don’t need to live with a flawed or imperfect smile. Dr. Durga can combine the latest restorative and cosmetic treatments to give you a smile makeover. You can chew, speak, and smile confidently with full mouth reconstruction.
What Is Full Mouth Reconstruction?
Full mouth reconstruction improves the lives and oral health of patients who have complex dental issues, like severely damaged or missing teeth. A strategic treatment plan uses one or more procedures to rehabilitate your dental health while also restoring your oral functions. Depending on the severity of your needs, the process can take several months; however, it’s time well spent to achieve the beautiful, healthy smile you deserve.
What Can I Expect with Full Mouth Reconstruction?
After Dr. Durga takes some time to carefully evaluate your oral health and discuss your goals with you, she will design your full mouth reconstruction plan. Your treatment course may include one or more of the following types of procedures:
Dental implants are typically the best way to replace lost teeth because they restore both the crowns and roots of teeth. They are sturdy and durable, and their appearance is virtually identical to that of natural teeth.
Dentures are another tooth replacement option. These removable prosthetics are natural-looking and provide reliable dental function.
A dental bridge is also a popular tooth replacement option because it is permanently bonded to nearby teeth and offers long-lasting, aesthetically pleasing results.
Many patients still have all or most of those natural teeth — but those teeth may be significantly decayed, damaged, or misshapen. That is where treatments like crowns, inlays, onlays, and tooth-colored fillings come into the picture. These treatments can renew the form and function of damaged teeth to provide you with a beautiful, strong smile.
Cosmetic services can give your new look the perfect finishing touch. Porcelain veneers can reshape your front teeth and hide flaws like discoloration, chips, cracks, minor misalignment, and more. Teeth whitening and dental bonding might also be part of your comprehensive smile transformation.

Full Mouth Reconstruction FAQs
Does Getting a Full Mouth Reconstruction Hurt?
Similar to every other dental procedure, our team wants to make sure that you’re as comfortable and relaxed as possible during your appointment. If you’re expecting to undergo more extensive or complex treatment, we’ll likely provide you with a local anesthetic to help numb the area and keep you pain-free. To further reduce your ability to register pain as well as minimize any anxiety you might feel, we also offer sedation dentistry. It is normal to experience mild soreness after undergoing your procedure, but this should only be temporary and can fade quicker by following our specific aftercare instructions. This way you can be more comfortable while making your recovery a smoother process.
Will People Be Able to Tell That I Had a Full Mouth Reconstruction?
Due to the advancements in dental technology and techniques, your results from a full mouth reconstruction should look completely natural. The noticeability of your brand-new smile will typically depend on the specific procedures you end up getting. If you’re only restoring one or several decayed teeth and/or brightening your smile with teeth whitening, then you shouldn’t draw much attention to yourself. However, if you receive veneers for a more comprehensive upgrade to your pearly whites, then the changes can be much more dramatic. Be sure to discuss what kind of results you’re interested in with our team and we’ll be sure to develop a unique plan tailored to your needs.
Do I Need a Full Mouth Reconstruction?
Those who aren’t happy with the function and/or appearance of their smile can usually benefit greatly from a full mouth reconstruction. By combining both restorative and cosmetic dental treatments, our team can help transform your smile so that you can feel confident in both your appearance and your oral habits, such as speaking, eating, and grinning. Most importantly, the final decision should be between you and Dr. Durga, as she’ll be the one to determine which services are best for your situation as well as the specific route we should take to help you achieve your dream smile.
How Do I Care for My Smile After Full Mouth Reconstruction?
Once you’ve undergone your procedure(s), you’ll need to keep up with good oral hygiene every day at home. Not only should you carefully brush, floss, and rinse your teeth, but you’ll also have to avoid certain poor oral habits, such as grinding/clenching your teeth, chewing on ice, and using your teeth to open packages. Make sure to visit your dentist every six months for regular checkups and cleanings so that they can keep a close watch on your oral health and address any underlying issues early on
