Full Mouth Restoration

What Is a Full Mouth Restoration?

Full mouth restoration—sometimes referred to as full mouth reconstruction or full mouth rehabilitation—is a term used to describe the process of achieving proper function and beautiful aesthetics for all of one’s teeth. This customizable technique may be a great option if you are missing several teeth; you have numerous chips, cracks, or signs of wear and tear; or you simply wish to enhance the overall health and appearance of your smile.

Who Can Benefit From Full Mouth Restoration?

Full mouth restoration is generally recommended for those who have multiple dental issues that cannot be addressed using a single treatment. Common concerns include:

  • Missing teeth
  • Severely worn or damaged teeth
  • Periodontal (gum) disease
  • Stained or discolored teeth
  • Decayed or infected teeth
  • Bite misalignment
  • Crooked or crowded teeth

Dr. Morton takes a fully customized approach to every full mouth restoration he performs, with the ultimate goal being to help each patient achieve a beautifully restored smile.

What Are My Full Mouth Restoration Procedure Options?

At our practice, Colin Morton, DDS offers a wide array of cosmetic and restorative dentistry options that can be combined to address your specific needs while helping you attain your oral goals. Some of the most common treatments that can potentially be performed during a full mouth restoration include:

  • Dental Implants

    Dental Implants are an innovative solution for replacing one or more missing teeth. They are designed to replicate the entirety of the tooth structure—including the root—which enables them to provide an exceptionally natural look and feel while also supporting the health of your jawbone.

  • Implant Dentures

    For those experiencing more extensive tooth loss, dental implants can also be used to anchor other restorations, such as implant-supported dentures. Using just a few precisely placed implants—typically between four and six per arch—Dr. Morton can help replace full arches of missing teeth. Patients often report enjoying the elevated aesthetics and enhanced convenience of implant dentures when compared to traditional removable dentures.

  • Porcelain Crowns

    Porcelain dental crowns are a versatile treatment that can be used for a variety of purposes, including restoring a damaged or weakened tooth, topping a dental implant, anchoring a dental bridge, or providing cosmetic improvements to individual teeth. Each crown is crafted using high-quality dental porcelain and then securely bonded over the tooth—or affixed to the implant post—for added strength, durability, structural support, and aesthetics.

  • Dental Bridges

    Dental bridges can help restore rows of adjacent teeth with beautiful, functional results. They are composed of an artificial tooth or set of teeth anchored in place using crowns, which are placed on the surrounding natural teeth. Dr. Morton takes meticulous care to ensure that each bridge is as comfortable and natural-looking as possible so that you can smile confidently.

  • Periodontal (Gum) Care

    A healthy mouth is the best foundation for a beautiful smile, and Dr. Morton offers periodontal care to help prevent and/or treat gum disease.

  • Porcelain Veneers

    Porcelain veneers are a popular cosmetic dentistry treatment that can address a variety of aesthetic concerns, including chips, gaps, and stains. They can also help conceal minor cases of tooth misalignment through a process known as “instant orthodontics.”

  • Teeth Whitening

The Full Mouth Reconstruction Process

During your initial appointment, Dr. Morton will perform an extensive oral evaluation to determine which combination of treatments may be the most effective for your unique needs and desired outcome. The total number of office visits (and time in between visits) needed to complete your full mouth restoration will depend on the complexity of your case and the specific procedures performed.

Throughout the entire process, Dr. Morton and our staff will be highly attentive to your every need, helping to ensure you remain as comfortable and pain-free as possible. For those who need a little extra help relaxing during treatment, we offer various sedation dentistry methods designed to alleviate dental anxieties and improve the efficiency of your time in the dental chair.

Once the final touches of your full mouth restoration are complete, you can expect a significant improvement in both the look and function of your teeth, allowing you to eat, speak, and smile with confidence.

How Long Does the Full Mouth Restoration Process Take?

Since each full mouth restoration is customized to the unique needs of the patient, treatment timelines tend to vary on a case by case basis. The most significant factor in determining how long your full mouth reconstruction will take is the individual procedures being performed. Specifically, dental implants typically require a few months to fully heal and integrate into the jawbone. By contrast, porcelain veneers can often be designed, crafted, and placed in as few as two office visits. Dr. Morton will go over the projected timeline for your treatment during your consultation, and we do our very best to ensure that the process is as efficient and comfortable as possible. For patients receiving implant restorations, we are often able to provide “immediate” or temporary restorations so that you do not have to go without teeth during the recovery process.

How Much Does Full Mouth Restoration Cost?

The cost of a full mouth restoration will vary based on several factors unique to each patient’s treatment plan. First, the state of one’s oral health can greatly impact pricing. For example, an individual who has gum disease may require periodontal care prior to tooth replacement, likely leading to a higher cost than someone who has healthy gum tissue with the same number of missing and/or damaged teeth.

Secondly, the specific restorative options selected to achieve an optimal outcome will influence the total expense of treatment. The use of dental implants generally costs more than traditional bridges or dentures (though the higher price of dental implants is representative of their quality and long-term success), and any complementary procedures like teeth whitening or porcelain veneers will add to the final quote.

Lastly, the skill and experience of the dentist will affect the cost of a full mouth restoration. Although lower prices can be enticing, it is important to understand that rates for various treatments and procedures are often reflective of the doctor’s overall expertise and past results, as well as the quality of dental materials and level of care you can expect.

Obtaining a Custom Full Mouth Restoration Price Quote

To determine exact pricing for your full mouth restoration, Dr. Morton will need to see you for an in-person consultation. At this time, he will assess your dental health, listen carefully to your smile goals, and recommend procedures that can yield the best long-term results. Once you have agreed upon an individualized approach, our office can provide a quote for the expected total cost of your treatment plan.

If you are interested in financing your full mouth restoration, our practice partners with several healthcare lenders that offer a variety of affordable payment plan options. A member of our team will be happy to help you get started on the approval process for a payment plan that fits comfortably within your budget.
