Smile makeover vs. full mouth reconstruction: Carlsbad cosmetic and general dentist describes the difference

Invisalign Clear Braces

Your mouth serves three distinct and important purposes. It gives a totally unique quality to your appearance. It also enables you to ingest foods, and communicate clearly. The terms "smile makeover" and "full mouth reconstruction" are sometimes used interchangeably with regard to significant dental work. Actually, there are similarities and differences. Carlsbad cosmetic and general dentist, Dr. Al A. Fallah, explains.

Dental care you choose

You might think of a smile makeover as a combination of treatments intended to enhance the appearance of your smile – dental care you choose to have performed.

Dr. Fallah begins by taking time to understand your goals, reviewing before and after photos with you, and performing a thorough evaluation of your oral health. Then he designs a personalized program to get your smile as close to ideal as possible. Your treatment plan could involve:
  • Professional teeth whitening
  • Mercury-free tooth colored fillings
  • Composite bonding
  • Porcelain veneers
  • Crowns
  • Bridges
  • Zirconia dental implants
  • Gum contouring using a pinhole surgical technique

Dental care you need

Full mouth reconstruction is generally thought of as necessary dental care. Some of the same techniques may be employed – bonding to repair damage, crowns for strength and protection, bridges or dental implants to replace missing teeth, or other general dentistry procedures. The focus is on restoring your mouth to a healthy, fully-functioning condition.

You don't have to pick

In Dr. Fallah's capable, experienced hands, aesthetics is a concern with every dental treatment. He creates customized protocols for complex full mouth reconstruction cases, that also transform the smile beautifully. Consideration is given to the face shape, skin tone, hair color, teeth, gums, and lips to ensure that treatment complements facial appearance.

In the care of Carlsbad general and cosmetic dentist, Dr. Fallah, patients rarely have to be referred out. Call 760-576-2779 to schedule a consultation.
