What Are My Options for a Full Mouth Restoration?

When you have multiple issues with many teeth, you may want to consider a full mouth restoration. It could consist of one or more procedures to correct the appearance and health of your teeth. At Rigby Advanced Dental, serving Austin, TX, and the surrounding area, we customize a plan just for you to fit your needs, preferences, and budget.

Veneers

Veneers are one option that a dentist can use to improve the appearance of your teeth. They can correct issues with the coloring, size, shape, and even shaping. We apply them on your front teeth. They’re thin coverings our dentist places on the front of your teeth using a dental-grade cement. Our dentist can use either porcelain or composite resin.

Dentures

You can either receive a full set of dentures, set for either the top or bottom, or a partial. A partial is for when you don’t require a full set of dentures. Dentures consist of a dental-grade plastic base that holds artificial teeth that consist of either dental-grade plastic or porcelain. You may choose between removable or fixed dentures.

Crowns & Bridges

A bridge consists of a crown to replace one or more missing teeth in a row. A crown, on the other hand, covers your natural tooth if it’s severely damaged or has aesthetic issues.

Overlays, Inlays, & Onlays

Overlays, onlays, and inlays are fillings. Our dentist tends to use these options when a standard filling isn’t enough, but your tooth doesn’t require an entire crown.

Implants

Dental implants can be a solution when you have one or more missing teeth. You may even choose to have a full set of dental implants if all of your teeth are severely damaged or missing. A dental implant consists of your dentist placing a screw-like device into your gums, and then your practitioner places a crown on it.

Do I Need a Full Mouth Reconstruction?

Functional teeth are a part of a healthy life that many of us take for granted. Missing teeth due to damage or a genetic condition can mean difficulty performing daily tasks like chewing and eating. The good news is that modern dentistry allows for restoration, no matter how advanced the issue is. Even individuals with no teeth at all can find their smile again with full mouth reconstruction. Dr. Rigby is an experienced prosthodontist who is skilled at providing full mouth reconstruction to those who need it most. Check out our Smile Gallery to see before and after photos of Dr. Rigby’s actual patients!

What Is Full Mouth Reconstruction?

Full mouth reconstruction is the term given to replacement of all missing or damaged teeth. If you have suffered from injury, tooth decay, or other incidents that have led to multiple missing teeth, you are a good candidate for reconstruction. Those with genetic conditions that lead to missing teeth or bone loss are also good candidates. These include conditions like ectodermal dysplasia, cleidocranial dysplasia, ameliogenesis, or dentinogenisis imperfecta. After a full mouth reconstruction you’ll have a beautiful, natural-looking smile that restores function and appearance.

How Long Does It Take?

The answer to this question varies widely depending on your needs. There are many options for tooth replacements, including dentures, crowns and dental implants. At minimum, this process will take several appointments, including an initial consultation.

How Much Does It Cost?

Again, this depends on the materials used and your particular health needs. A consultation will help us assess the timeline and cost of your treatment. We offer several financing options for more costly procedures, including dental insurance and CareCredit.

Is It Right for Me?

Have you been embarrassed about missing teeth? Do you have pain because of cracked or broken teeth? Are you unable to eat your favorite foods? If you answered yes to any of these questions then come in for a consultation. If you’re not sure if full mouth reconstruction is right for you, we have answers to your questions. Don’t put off having a healthy and happy smile! Call us today.
