What is a Full Mouth Reconstruction?
A smile makeover, also called as full mouth reconstruction, is the rebuilding or replacement of all of the important components of a patient’s mouth to create a flawless smile. The procedures required are determined by how you want your teeth to look as well as your needs. Onlays, crowns, dental implants, veneers, and dentures are some of the operations available. A full mouth reconstruction operation will either directly or indirectly influence your teeth. This is not only to make you appear attractive, but also to partially or totally enhance vital functions like eating, speaking, and smiling.
Am I a Good Candidate for Full Mouth Reconstruction?
A complete mouth restoration requires extensive surgery, thus potential candidates must be in good condition. Are you a candidate for a smile makeover? Let’s split it down by full mouth reconstruction type.
Full Mouth Reconstruction with Crowns
- Have you got crooked teeth? Instead of a full mouth reconstruction, you may require braces.
- Are your teeth in excellent condition? You may only require crowns or fillings. Cosmetic dental treatments such as crowns, veneers, fillings, or teeth whitening are all you need to restore your smile if your teeth are in good condition.
Full Mouth Reconstruction with Dental Implants
- Do you have sufficient bone volume? You should have enough bone volume to offer adequate support and secure the dental implants appropriately. You may not be a good candidate for a complete mouth reconstruction using dental implants if you’ve been missing teeth for an extended length of time or have extensive periodontal disease.
- Do you suffer from osteoporosis? If you have osteoporosis, you may be unable to have dental implants. Inform your dentist about any bone issues you may have so that they may determine whether you are a good candidate for a full mouth reconstruction with dental implants.
- Do you smoke a lot? Tobacco use raises the risk of problems including postoperative infections.
- Do you have a systemic condition that is uncontrolled? Diabetes, hypertension, and bleeding issues might all preclude you from receiving dental implants.
You must first obtain permission from your implant surgeon. Inform them of any systemic condition that may prohibit you from receiving this therapy if you desire a full mouth reconstruction with dental implants,

Consider the size and shape of your teeth because you will be wearing them for the rest of your life. Make certain that your grin is precisely as you want it to be.

- Veneers – Dental veneers are thin, tooth-colored shells that are formed and cemented to the tooth’s surface.

- Inlays and Onlays – Inlays and onlays are both types of restorative treatments that can be used when a tooth is too damaged for a regular filling but does not require a crown. Onlays cover the cusp of the tooth, whereas inlays fill the area between the cusps. Both techniques assist to preserve the bulk of the native tooth by avoiding shrinkage and loosening that might occur with regular fillings.
