Full Mouth Reconstruction in Great Falls, MT
Restore Confidence with a Smile Makeover
Full mouth reconstruction combines two or more cosmetic dental procedures to improve your appearance. Some people refer to a full mouth reconstruction as a Smile Makeover. Whatever name you use, full mouth reconstruction requires a carefully constructed treatment plan based on your oral health, aesthetic goals, and Dr. Poulson’s evaluation of your teeth and gums.
Cosmetic Dental Procedures
As a cosmetic dentist, Dr. Poulson combines technical skills with an artistic understanding of facial symmetry and how your teeth, gums, and jawbone affect your facial features. Depending on your desired results, Dr. Poulson may recommend two or more common cosmetic procedures to create the smile of your dreams.
Cracked, chipped, or pitted teeth can be corrected with dental bonding. This versatile procedure can also eliminate small gaps between the teeth and improve your teeth’s color and surface appearance. We use a tooth-colored resin bonded to the surface of the teeth and hardened with a special light. Bonding is one of the most inexpensive ways to transform the appearance of your teeth and usually lasts 5-7 years.
Porcelain veneers can also correct problems with the color of the teeth and disguise minor gaps and chips. Veneers are thin shells, usually porcelain applied to the visible front portion of the tooth. A thin layer of the front of the teeth is removed to place veneers so the porcelain shell can be permanently attached using dental adhesive. Veneers are highly realistic due to their translucence and customized color. An added advantage is that veneers resist staining, helping you maintain a whiter smile. Veneers typically last 20 years.
The most popular cosmetic dental procedure is teeth whitening. You can see immediate results without invasive procedures, and the price is budget-friendly. Dr. Poulson designs customized splints, similar to mouthguards, precision-fitted to your teeth, which you wear a few hours a day. The splints hold a gel whitening solution against the teeth, safely powering away stains.
Invisalign clear aligners have revolutionized teeth straightening. With these nearly invisible aligners, adults and teens can achieve straighter teeth in less time than traditional braces. The aligners gently guide the teeth into new positions without others seeing any unattractive brackets or wires. Invisalign aligners are comfortable, discreet, and removable for eating and special occasions.
Is Full Mouth Reconstruction Right for Me?
If you are unhappy with your smile, a consultation with Dr. Poulson is the first step. Together, you can determine what features of your smile you want to correct and which procedures are appropriate. Each patient’s needs are different. Dr. Poulson creates a customized plan for each patient to ensure optimal results.
Most people are candidates for full mouth reconstruction or a smile makeover. You must be in good overall health with no evidence of gum disease or tooth decay. If you have signs of periodontal disease or dental caries, these must be successfully treated before full mouth reconstruction can begin.
