What Is Full Mouth Reconstruction?

A full mouth reconstruction combines multiple customized restorative treatments to repair your smile and restore important oral functions.  Your dentist will thoroughly assess your teeth, jaws, and other tissues to determine the best restorative solutions for your treatment plan.

The cosmetics-focused version of this procedure is called a smile makeover. Depending on your goals, your dentist may also include smile makeover treatments (such as veneers) in your full mouth reconstruction plan.

Common Full Mouth Reconstruction Procedures

Your dentist will take precise digital X-rays and 3-D digital CT scans to determine which of the following procedures should be included in your full mouth reconstruction treatment plan:

Dental Implants

Dental implants are artificial tooth roots surgically placed in your jaw where teeth are missing. Lifelike, fully functional dentures, crowns, or bridges can be attached to the implants to replace the tooth from root to chewing surface. Implant-supported dentures provide far more stability than traditional dentures. Our practice only uses the most advanced materials for this procedure, including Nobel Biocare® implants. 

Explore Dental Implants


Fillings are the most common treatment for small to medium cavities. This tooth-colored restoration will strengthen and seal your tooth.

Explore Fillings

Dental Crowns

A customized crown can protect a compromised tooth after treatment or replace a lost tooth in conjunction with a dental implant. Our dentists work carefully when providing dental crowns to ensure the results look natural, feel comfortable, and provide the needed support.

Custom-made dental bridges can replace multiple missing teeth. Along with traditional bridges, which will attach to your teeth, we also offer implant-supported bridges. 

Explore Dental Bridges

Root Canal Therapy

Our dentists can eliminate a dental infection by removing the soft inner tissue of the tooth. The exterior of your tooth will be restored with a customized dental crown.

Before my visit I was so nervous because I don’t like the dentist and I had not had a cleaning in a while. From the front office staff to the hygienists to my dentist I felt a very warm welcome! Regina gave me the best cleaning I’ve ever had! The whole experience was pain free and all of my questions were answered. If you have dentist anxiety this is the place for you, trust me! :)

Full Mouth Reconstruction FAQs

Am I a Full Mouth
Reconstruction Candidate?

  1. Missing teeth

We Offer Financing to Make Treatment Accessible

Fortunately, we accept payment through third-party lenders CareCredit® and LendingClub, so out-of-pocket costs are easier to manage.

How Long Does Full
Mouth Reconstruction Take?

The length of time it takes for patients to undergo full mouth reconstruction is dependent on the amount of work that needs to be done. Simpler, more straightforward cases may be a matter of a few visits to complete; others that require more involved treatment — such as implant placement and other dental surgeries — may have their work completed over the course of several months or a year.

When you visit our office for a consultation, your dentist will go over an anticipated timeframe for your treatment and walk you through what you can expect from a full mouth reconstruction.

Are There Any Risks I Should Know About?

Implant failure and infection are two possible risks of full mouth reconstruction. However, our practice follows rigorous safety protocols, so these risks are efficiently managed and greatly reduced. We also have very high standards for implant candidacy.

Is Full Mouth Reconstruction Painful?

Our dentists know that many patients are nervous about pain and dentistry in general. Safe, calming sedation dentistry is offered to help you experience pain-free relaxation through your procedures. Options include:

Nitrous Oxide

Known as laughing gas, you'll breathe this mild sedation in through a mask to put you in a relaxed, but completely conscious state. The effects wear off quickly once the procedure is done so you can drive yourself home.

Oral Sedation

By taking a prescribed sedative before your appointment, you will be extremely drowsy during your procedure. You will reach a state of twilight sleep, but you won't be unconscious. A ride to and from your appointment will be necessary.

Combining Full Mouth Reconstruction With Professional Teeth Whitening

If you come to our practice feeling that your smile is hopelessly compromised, you're likely most concerned about your comfort and health. But professional teeth whitening can give you the extra boost of confidence that results from a complete, healthy smile. We often recommend whitening before any restorations are placed so that you can choose a brighter, more youthful shade for your crowns, bridges, or dentures
