What is Full Mouth Reconstruction? A full mouth reconstruction is one of the many services we provide at West Hollywood Holistic and Cosmetic Dental Care. This process consists of replacing or reconstructing all of the teeth. When you have a full mouth restoration, you are taking care of your overall dental health while also creating the smile of your dreams. A full mouth reconstruction is both restorative dentistry and cosmetic dentistry focused on aesthetics. We care about beauty as well as health and function.
Who needs a full mouth reconstruction?
Many conditions require a full mouth restoration at some point. This includes things people are born with like Ectodermal Dysplasia, Ameliogenesis, and Dentinogenisis Imperfecta. These conditions necessitate a comprehensive treatment plan for dental care like a full mouth reconstruction.
Other good candidates for full mouth reconstruction are those with missing teeth and those with cracked or broken teeth. When teeth are badly worn from bruxism (teeth grinding) a full mouth reconstruction may be in order. If you have numerous fillings, many of which are failing, full mouth reconstruction from a trusted West Hollywood dentist is a potential solution. Those with advanced gum disease might need to consider a full mouth reconstruction. Oral cancer will sometimes necessitate full mouth reconstruction. Finally, mouths with extensive decay as well as a need for bite correction would be well served by a full mouth reconstruction.
Components of a Full Mouth Reconstruction
The exact components in a full mouth reconstruction depend on the individual mouth and the overall state of dental health within. Some of the most common elements of a complete teeth reconstruction include crowns, bridges, dental inlays and onlays, white veneers, teeth whiteneing treatments, and dental implants. In cases of oral cancer, sometimes a complete full mouth restoration will involve restoring missing structures of the oral cavity as well as replacing or restoring the teeth.
Advantages of a Complete Tooth Restoration
The most obvious advantage of a full mouth reconstruction is to restore your dental health. Your teeth will look, feel, and function like normal, healthy teeth. You’ll be able to speak and eat normally and enjoy your life. Because a full mouth reconstruction is a long-term, permanent solution, you can look forward to good dental health for years to come as long as you maintain good dental hygiene habits. This means less expensive dental work and less pain or other symptoms of dental problems.
Another major advantage of full mouth restoration in West Hollywood is the confidence and happiness that come along with a great smile. Being able to smile confidently can make a huge difference in your life. It might change the way you see yourself and it might make personal and professional relationships easier. An attractive smile is magnetic and will help others eventually get to know you and your unique personality. Your smile should never hold you back and a full mouth reconstruction can ensure that it won’t. If anything, your new smile will drive you forward into a wonderful future.
West Hollywood Full Mouth Reconstruction
A full mouth restoration is a major treatment undertaking so it’s very important to work with an experienced and trustworthy dentist. We have extensive experience with full mouth reconstruction and can walk you through every step of the process.
Typically, a full mouth reconstruction will start with extensive testing. This may include X-rays, 3D imaging, dental impressions, and more. We use advanced technology to make sure we have all of the data we need to create the best possible plan. This testing lets us see any underlying issues in the teeth, jawbone, and gums.
Because a full mouth reconstruction is a major and transformative experience, we like to use technology to show you a preview of your results. Modeling lets you see what your new smile will look like. If it’s not quite what you were hoping for, you and your dentist may even be able to adjust the plan before the process begins.
In addition to extensive testing and modeling and expert insight into your challenges, we’re always interested in understanding your concerns and desires. Once Dr. Vafa understand your goals and wishes, he can make sure to provide you with the necessary restoration treatments.

How long does the process take?
Because a full mouth restoration is highly individualized, the timeline for the process won’t be the same for everyone. Our experience and highly developed technique, as well as the use of advanced technology, ensures we can often complete a full mouth reconstruction in just a few visits. In other cases, the timeline will need to be much longer, especially if you need an orthodontic treatments.
Your recovery time will also depend on the specific procedures involved in your full mouth reconstruction. Dental implants will need some recovery time, for example, while the gums heal. This means you’ll need to focus on a soft food diet at first. Many procedures involved in a full mouth reconstruction require virtually no recovery time.
