Full Mouth Reconstruction is a treatment that uses the latest cosmetic and neuromuscular technology to not only restore the aesthetic structure of your teeth, but also to build the optimum bite by harmonizing your teeth, muscles and jaw joint. This gives you a beautiful smile as well as healthy and functional teeth. There are various treatments that are part of the full mouth reconstruction process, and depending on your specific case you may need any one or a combination of the following.
Metal Free Fillings and Restorations
Chances are if you open your mouth and look way back you are going to find a few metal fillings in your mouth. The metal used to fill teeth is an "amalgam" of silver and mercury, a substance created back during the time of the Civil War. Over time, the fluctuations in metal caused by eating hot and cold foods can cause the fillings to actually crack the teeth they were intended to protect, allowing for further decay.
The most desirable procedure today for filling a cavity is to use an inlay or an onlay. Made of porcelain or resin, inlays and onlays not only look natural, but also actually restore teeth to their original strength or better! Teeth that once appeared gray from silver/mercury amalgams are made to look new, and poisonous mercury is removed from the patient's mouth.
Aesthetic Metal Free Bridges
Accidents happen. Anyone can lose a tooth or multiple teeth for any number of reasons. Of course, the result is never flattering, and can actually cause the remaining teeth to drift out of position. Even worse, people lose their confidence to smile when they lose teeth. In the past, the solution has been to have missing teeth replaced with a bridge restoration. However, most bridges were (and still are) constructed with porcelain fused to metal. The only problem is that you can see the metal-above the teeth at the gum line and through the teeth in bright light. Needless to say, the result is less than ideal.
Dream Smile Dental has the ideal solution. We replace missing teeth using 100% porcelain bridges only. The new porcelain "tooth" is fitted and fused between two porcelain crowns. The two crowns are then permanently affixed onto the teeth on either side of the gap. The resulting restoration will last and last. So will the resulting beauty.
The smile designers at Dream Smile Dental can straighten your teeth to their natural positions in as little as four visits to our office. What used to take two years to straighten can literally be corrected in two weeks. It's all done with porcelain veneers, adding strength and beauty to your existing teeth.
Designed to cover the existing surface of the tooth, a veneer, also referred to as a laminate, is constructed entirely of porcelain. It is naturally strong, stain-resistant, and life-like. Veneers can be used to improve the shape of the teeth, cover hopelessly stained teeth, and repair gaps and cracks.
If you've been dreaming of your perfect smile, nothing else comes close to the natural beauty of porcelain veneers. You'll never be able to tell that the veneers aren't your natural teeth, and neither will anyone else!
