What Is Full Mouth Reconstruction?
At Brown and Baran Family Dentistry, full mouth reconstruction is designed to address your specific needs, including current oral health concerns, cosmetic goals, and budget. Note that full mouth reconstruction and smile makeovers are different. Though both will combine various treatments in a multi-stage process, smile makeovers are primarily intended to enhance the aesthetics of your smile.
In contrast, while full mouth reconstruction will also improve your appearance, its primary purpose is restorative. Your dentist will choose treatments to repair dental damage and renew oral function.
Are You a Candidate for Full Mouth Reconstruction?
If you are struggling with any of the following issues, you are likely a candidate for full mouth reconstruction:
- Numerous missing teeth
- Multiple weakened or cracked teeth

Utilizing state-of-the-art technology, your dentist will combine several restorative procedures so that you can enjoy dramatically improved oral health and a brighter, more youthful smile.
In many cases, you can choose to address your most pressing concerns, such as missing teeth, first. Additionally, there are often several different treatment options for each issue. Your practitioner will design your full mouth reconstruction plan to fit within your budget and meet your health goals.
Full mouth reconstruction may involve a variety of procedures, including:
crowns:Custom-crafted, tooth-shaped crowns can repair cracked, weakened, or severely decayed teeth. Often, we can provide same-day crowns thanks to our latest technology.
- Dental bridges: Dental bridges are a trusted option to replace between one and three teeth. Two crowns are placed over teeth on either side of the gap, and restorations replace missing teeth in between.
- Dentures: Traditional dentures can replace all or most of your teeth. These removable prosthetics have a naturally colored plastic base that will blend with your gum tissue.
- Dental implants: All of our restorations appear realistic and fit securely. However, for the most stable fit possible, we recommend dental implants. Surgically placed in your jaw, the implants replace tooth
roots,and can support your crown, bridge, or denture. Often, we can provide Same Day Teeth® to restore your smile in a single appointment.
- Bone grafting: Before you can receive dental implants, you must have a strong jaw. If you have suffered bone recession as a result of tooth loss, your dentist can replace the tissue during bone grafting surgery.
