When you face plenty of problems, it’s hard to know where to start. In fact, you can feel like giving up, as if there are too many problems to fix. When you have several teeth that are chipped, cracked, or even lost, you might feel that you just have to live with that.
Instead, you need to call our Pompano Beach, FL dental office today at 954-590-0538 and schedule a consultation for a full-mouth reconstruction. Our dentists are skilled and experienced in using restorative dentistry treatments to repair and replace teeth until your smile is finally healthy and beautiful again. And doesn’t everyone deserve to have that?
Restoring Smiles Starts With A Plan
A restorative dentistry treatment is anything that repairs or restores your teeth to how they should be. It can mean using a filling to repair tooth decay, using a dental crown to strengthen a damaged tooth, or replacing a tooth lost to gum disease or sports injury.
If you just have one problem, there’s not much to plan. You come into our Pompano Beach, FL dental office, get a thorough exam, and then receive the treatment to fix the problem. But what happens when you have several problems? You need a plan.
Not only is this needed so you know what’s going to happen, but a plan makes sure things are done in the right order. Although dental implants are amazing ways to replace a lost tooth, there’s no need for one if you’re going to get dentures.
That’s what a full-mouth reconstruction is all about. It’s a comprehensive, strategic plan to use treatments until your smile is back.
Full-Mouth Reconstruction Treatments
But what can be included in a full-mouth reconstruction? Here are some of the dental restorations that can help bring your smile back.
Part of the problem with chips or cracks is that they look bad. An otherwise great-looking smile loses a lot when damage is readily visible. Plus, damage like this tends to get worse over time.
Dental veneers are great in these situations. They’re shell-like covers for the front of your teeth. They’re made to fit one of your teeth in particular, and they look like healthy enamel. Once our dentists expertly place them on your teeth, damage is hidden and sealed so no one will see it and so it won’t get any worse.
These dental restorations are similar to dental veneers, but more comprehensive. Like veneers, dental crowns are shaped to match your teeth and look like healthy enamel. But instead of just covering the front of your teeth, they cover all of the visible part. Dental crowns are tooth-shaped caps.
These are great for hiding and sealing damage like chips or cracks, but dental crowns also offer a layer of protection for the whole tooth. They can even be used when you have a cavity that’s too big for a filling.
Missing a tooth quickly gets old. Your other teeth will grow crooked, and it can be harder to talk or chew normally. A fast, nonsurgical dental restoration to fix this problem is the dental bridge. Dental crowns are first placed on the teeth next to the gap. Then a durable but beautiful replacement tooth is bonded to those crowns, holding it firmly in the space. This replaces your tooth.
Dental implants replace missing teeth like dental bridges do, but these are more permanent. That’s because dental implants use an artificial tooth root that mimics those found with your natural teeth. These roots are surgically implanted in your jawbone, giving these the same strength and stability as your natural teeth.
If you need many teeth replaced for any reason, it’s impractical to get dental bridges or dental implants for each one. That’s when you need dentures. Modern dentures are strong and look like natural teeth. A series of replacement teeth (the same kind used in dental bridges and dental implants) are held in a gum-colored base. You wear your dentures over your gums so you can talk, chew, and look normal again.
