Your smile is a central part of your appearance. Damaged or missing teeth can cause you to hide behind closed lips, but a full mouth reconstruction can give you back your confidence with a stunning smile through a series of cosmetic dentistry procedures. A full mouth reconstruction (or rehabilitation) involves restoring all of your upper and lower teeth to their prime condition and addressing any gum or jawbone issues.

What Is a Full Mouth Reconstruction?
A full mouth reconstruction includes a number of dentistry procedures used to rebuild your smile. The dental work needed will depend on the condition of your teeth, gums and jaw. Our dentist, Dr. Jorge Paez, will evaluate the state of your dental health to see if you’re a candidate for restorative procedures such as:
If you have late stage gum disease, you may need to have periodontal treatments to ensure your rehabilitated teeth have a strong structure to hold them. This may involve root planing or laser dentistry to reshape your gums. Bone or soft tissue grafts may be required to restore your jawbone and gums to a healthy state if you have severe periodontitis. Dr. Paez will also take into account your bite. If your bite is misaligned or it’s painful to close your mouth, you may need orthodontics before undergoing reconstructive dentistry.
Your full mouth reconstruction will be tailored to suit your teeth and esthetic goals. Dr. Paez will decide the extent of dental work you’ll need and discuss your options for tooth shape, size and color. He will make sure your new teeth and smile match your face and side profile. In some cases, you may even look younger after a full mouth reconstruction because you no longer have missing teeth affecting the shape of your face.
Am I a Candidate for a Full Mouth Reconstruction?
The best way to narrow down the right dentistry process for you is by meeting with Dr. Paez to go over your goals for your teeth and overall smile. He will use x-rays, teeth impressions, your dental history and state-of-the-art technology to build a restorative plan specific to you.
You could be a great candidate for a full mouth reconstruction if:
- You have missing teeth from trauma or tooth decay.
- Your teeth are worn down from acid erosion or grinding your teeth.
- You have chipped, crooked or cracked teeth.
- Your jaw or bite causes you pain such as a clicking/popping jaw, headaches or stiff jaw muscles.
