Smile Makeover vs. Full Mouth Reconstruction

Oakton man considering a smile makeoverSometimes a single treatment isn’t enough to fix all the dental problems you’re experiencing. That can be the case if you want to completely transform the look of your smile or need to rebuild its function from the ground up. Fortunately, a series of dental procedures can achieve those goals.

Smile makeovers and full mouth reconstructions are two widely performed whole-mouth treatment plans. Keep reading to learn what makes them different and which one might be right for you.

Smile Makeover

A smile makeover is designed to improve cosmetic imperfections. It goes beyond a single treatment, combining numerous procedures to fully address your aesthetic concerns. Services such as porcelain veneers, gum recontouring, and tooth whitening are frequently included.

Consider a smile makeover if you want to treat:

  • Discoloration
  • Wear and damage
  • Gaps between teeth
  • Mishappen or crooked teeth
  • Unsightly metal fillings
  • Excess gum tissue

Full Mouth Reconstruction

A full mouth reconstruction is a smile makeover and then some. It corrects cosmetic issues, of course, but it doesn’t stop there. It targets the bigger problems related to your jaw joints, bite alignment, and dental function.

Procedures included in this type of comprehensive dental plan are often restorative in nature. Dental implants, dental crowns, and orthodontics are a few common options. Our dentist will figure out what procedures are needed for your unique case.

You may be a great candidate for full mouth rejuvenation if:

  • You’re experiencing jaw tension, headaches, or other painful symptoms associated with TMJ.
  • You’ve lost teeth because of trauma or decay.
  • Your teeth are damaged, fractured, or severely worn.
  • You’re unhappy with the appearance of your smile.
