Full Mouth Reconstruction vs. Smile Makeover
By Patrick Casey on February 08, 2019
Oral health complications are not unusual, and with timely treatment, most problems can be addressed before they get out of control. Unfortunately, patients may avoid dental exams and treatments due to anxiety, time constraints, or financial limitations. However, if dental problems go untreated, they can spread and become more severe.
At Smile Montreal, Drs. Charles and Patrick Casey offer full mouth reconstruction to treat significant dental problems. We also offer smile makeover treatment to address cosmetic issues.
Each of these treatment plans combine dental treatments to improve the smile. Patients who have questions about the differences between full mouth reconstruction vs. smile makeover can learn more from our Montreal, QC dental team.
What Is Full Mouth Reconstruction?
Full mouth reconstruction is designed to improve a patient’s oral health. The treatment plan will combine restorative dentistry treatments to address oral health concerns such as dental damage, tooth loss, bone atrophy, and jaw issues.
The goal of full mouth reconstruction is to repair dental damage so that patients can enjoy a full range of comfortable oral functions.
Common Full Mouth Reconstruction Procedures
Full mouth reconstruction is completely customizable. Each treatment plan is tailored to the unique needs of the patient. Depending on each patient’s dental needs, full mouth reconstruction may involve any combination of restorative and periodontal treatments, including:
- Dental fillings
- Inlays and onlays
- Dental crowns
- Dental bridges
- Dental implants
- Root planing and scaling
What Is Smile Makeover Treatment?
Smile makeover treatment is designed to improve the aesthetics of the smile. Even a healthy smile can have cosmetic flaws, such as dental stains, superficial chips or cracks, and spacing issues, that detract from the beauty of the smile.
Smile makeover treatment combines cosmetic dentistry treatments to eliminate or minimize imperfections so that patients can have straight, white, attractive teeth.
Common Smile Makeover Procedures
As with full mouth reconstruction, every smile makeover treatment is customized to the specific needs of each patient. Dr. Casey may combine any number of cosmetic dentistry treatments to help patients achieve their aesthetic goals, including:
- Dental bonding
- Teeth whitening
- Porcelain veneers
- Gum contouring
Full mouth reconstruction and smile makeover treatment benefit patients by addressing a number of oral health or aesthetic concerns in just one treatment plan. These customizable procedures address the unique needs of each patient while providing several other advantages:
- Full mouth reconstruction and smile makeover procedures can shorten a patient’s overall treatment timeline
- Multiple procedures can be performed at once, which may lower the ultimate cost of treatment
- Smile makeover treatment and full mouth reconstruction may lower the overall number of patient visits, as well as the number of times under sedation
- Both treatment plans dramatically makeover the smile so that patients can achieve their dental goals
