Full Mouth Reconstruction in Irving
Improve Your Smile & Boost Your Oral Health
Full mouth reconstruction is a very different process from a smile makeover where the primary purpose is to improve the appearance of your teeth.

Who Might Need Full Mouth Reconstruction?
Full mouth reconstruction may be appropriate for you if your teeth and jaws have suffered significant damage due to dental disease or injury.
This might be the case if you:
- Had advanced periodontal disease
- Have had a significant number of tooth infections
- Have suffered an injury in an accident
- Have significant problems with your bite that resulted in a painful and potentially destructive condition called temporomandibular disorder or TMD
Full mouth reconstruction can be used to restore some or all of your teeth.
What Type of Treatments Are Involved with Full Mouth Reconstruction?
The primary goal of full mouth reconstruction is to restore dental health and to ensure you have fully functional teeth while creating a new smile that will look attractive. Treatments typically used to reconstruct a smile include crowns and implant supported bridges, porcelain veneers, and tooth-colored fillings. More advanced treatments may include gum lifting, bone grafts, dental implant treatment, and orthodontics to realign your teeth.
If you have any active periodontal disease, you will require specialized treatment to help bring this disease under control. If you have TMD, this will also need treatment, as will teeth grinding or clenching, a condition called bruxism. Any tooth infections must be treated with root canal therapy. It is important to have a healthy mouth before your smile can be reconstructed, as this will ensure your treatments will last longer.
