Drs. Shah and Velilla of Novi, Michigan are capable of rebuilding smiles no matter their current state. If your smile is badly damaged, full mouth reconstruction should be considered.
According to the American College of Prosthodontics, full mouth reconstruction is:
“As the name implies, full mouth reconstruction refers to rebuilding all of the teeth in a patient’s mouth. Full mouth reconstructions combine esthetics with the science of restorative dentistry to improve the health, function, and beauty of the smile. Crowns (caps), dental bridges, dental veneers and/or dental implants may be used in a full mouth reconstruction. In some patients orthodontics may also be employed to help properly position the jaw and align the teeth.”
If teeth are cracked, chipped, or badly decayed a dental crown can be placed to help restore the tooth or teeth to function. A crown is a cap that is placed over the natural tooth after the natural tooth has been prepared. After the crown is placed the tooth appears healthy and is fully functional. We can fabricate and place a crown in a single appointment with our CEREC same day technology.
If you have missing teeth and would like to fill the gap, we may choose a dental bridge. A dental bridge is a prosthetic that attaches to the teeth on either side of the gap and a false tooth or teeth are attached to fill the gap. We take great care to match the prosthetic to your natural teeth so no one will know it is a restoration.
If teeth are badly worn and you are a healthy candidate, we can reinvent your smile with porcelain veneers. Veneers can be placed to fix crooked, gaped, stained, and overlapped teeth.
If you are missing a tooth or teeth, or would like to secure dentures, dental implants are probably your best option. Dental implants allow for strong, sturdy tooth replacements that offer unmatched stability, so you can forget about worrying about your teeth.
If your teeth are crooked, gaped, or overlapped, we can fit you with custom Invisalign® aligners. Invisalign® is a clear aligner teeth straightening system for people who don’t want the bulk and discomfort of wire brackets.
If we determine that the best course of action is to fit you with dentures, know that dentures are a more convenient and natural-looking option than in years past. If you are a candidate, we can also look into implant-supported dentures; where the denture is adhered to implants in the jaw. This allows the denture to attach to the jaw and mimic natural teeth much more closely than removable dentures.
If a full mouth reconstruction is something you would like to explore, please come in for a comprehensive consultation. We will take the time to learn about your frustrations and your goals and together come up with a plan to get you the smile you have always wanted. Give your Detroit Metro dentists, Drs.
