Damaged or missing teeth can negatively impact your self-esteem, smile and total oral health as well as make it difficult for you to enjoy your food. With cosmetic dentistry, however, those problems can be eliminated with the right treatment plan.
Here are some of the most frequently asked questions we Spring Branch Dental get regarding our cosmetic dentistry services:
1. What is full-mouth restoration?
A full-mouth restoration–also known as a full-mouth reconstruction–involves several different cosmetic dentistry procedures, each of which is designed to improve the health and appearance of your smile. Typically, a dentist will recommend restorations for clients who have teeth that are damaged, worn down or missing. Depending on your particular needs, one or more of the following treatments may be used to correct your dental problems:
- tooth bonding
- tooth-colored fillings
- porcelain veneers
- dental bridges
- dental implants
- dental crowns
2. What should I expect before restoration work begins?
At your first appointment, an oral exam will be done including taking x-rays, gathering your dental history and checking for neuromuscular problems. Then he or she will make treatment recommendations.
3. What will a full-mouth restoration do for my appearance?
Teeth that are worn down, broken, chipped or missing can age you prematurely in appearance. A full-mouth restoration from Spring Branch Dental can create a more youthful smile that is as beautiful as it is natural-looking and work magic on your self-esteem.
4. What specific oral health issues qualify me for full-mouth restoration?
Following is a list of some of the problems and conditions that would make you a good candidate for cosmetic dentistry restoration procedures:
- severely damaged teeth;
- missing teeth (especially if their lack is causing your bite to be off);
- headaches, jaw pain, or popping sounds in the jaw region that are a result of temporomandibular disorder (TMD); and
- gum disease.
