Dr. Kevin Sands is a highly skilled Beverly Hills dentist dedicated to restoring ideal oral health and enhancing the beauty of your smile with advanced dental procedures and compassion.

What Can Full Mouth Restoration Accomplish?

For individuals with multiple dental problems, full mouth restoration provides a radiant and healthy smile that contributes significantly to their overall wellness and quality of life. Depending on your needs, Dr. Sands will recommend the best treatment options to help you meet your goals.

Benefits of Full Mouth Restoration

Full mouth restoration can transform the function and appeal of your teeth. Innovative procedures such as dental implants, crowns, bridges, and veneers each offer their own advantages.

When combined, these benefits provide an outcome that is greater than the sum of the treatments for transformative results, such as:

  • A natural-looking smile: Restorations blend seamlessly with natural teeth, providing a harmonious appearance.
  • Improved chewing and speaking: Full mouth restoration enhances oral function, allowing for proper chewing and clear speech.
  • Protection against further damage: Restorations prevent further deterioration of damaged or weakened teeth.
  • Prevention of complications: Restoration of missing teeth and damaged teeth prevents complications such as shifting, bite problems, and jaw joint issues.

What are My Full Mouth Restoration Options?

Dental Implants for Tooth Replacement

  • Surgically placed titanium implant posts act as artificial tooth roots and are topped with porcelain crowns to replicate healthy natural teeth.
  • Dental implants offer a permanent and natural-looking solution for missing teeth, for stability, and help prevent bone loss in the jaw.
  • Supportive treatments like bone grafting to strengthen the jaw may be necessary when many teeth are missing.
  • Healing time varies depending on the number of teeth being replaced and the condition of the underlying bone, but it can take several months for osseointegration. Temporary restorations are often provided during the process.

Porcelain Bridges

  • This restoration option is designed to replace one or two missing teeth next to each other. Bridges can be anchored to crowns placed on adjacent, prepared natural teeth or dental implants.
  • Bridges restore aesthetics and function to prevent bite problems and other issues such as tooth shifting.
  • Like crowns, bridges entail a short recovery and an adjustment period.

Porcelain Crowns

  • These life-like porcelain caps are used to restore damaged or weakened teeth that have been remodeled to receive this restoration.
  • Dental crowns prevent further deterioration, restore function, and enhance aesthetics.
  • Minimal downtime and temporary sensitivity are involved with this treatment.

Porcelain Veneers

  • Ultra-thin porcelain shells are applied to the front surface of teeth for cosmetic enhancement.
  • Veneers can conceal stained, chipped, misshapen, or misaligned teeth, creating a stunning, natural-looking smile.
  • Expect minimal downtime, with some temporary sensitivity.

The Full Mouth Restoration Process

Your Initial Consultation

This process involves careful planning, precise execution, and a comprehensive evaluation to ensure optimal results. Our dentist takes a collaborative approach, making communication vital. At your full mouth restoration consultation with Dr. Sands, he will:

  • Review your dental and medical history
  • Obtain images of your teeth, gums, and jawbone.
  • Perform a thorough examination and listen carefully to the concerns and goals you have about your smile.

Your Customized Treatment Plan

Dr. Sands will prepare a personalized treatment plan according to your desired results.

  • This first step when moving forward with full mouth restoration is to address gum disease and rid the teeth of cavities and infection.
  • Once your oral health has improved, you can move on to addressing functional issues. If you have misaligned or crowded teeth, orthodontic treatments, like Invisalign®, can straighten and realign them discreetly before having restorations placed.
  • Dr. Sands will make the most suitable recommendations for restoration to enhance, repair, or replace damaged and missing teeth.

Your Procedures

If needed, your procedures will be performed in the following order:

  • Tooth extractions: If necessary, extractions may be performed to remove damaged or compromised teeth.
  • Optional teeth whitening: Your restorations cannot be lightened later, so Dr. Sands may also suggest having your healthy teeth professionally whitened before color-matching your dental prosthetics. This way, you can achieve a restored and brighter smile.
  • Dental implant placement: Surgical placement of implants, with a healing period before the attachment of prosthetic teeth (crowns).
  • Crowns and bridges: Tooth preparation and impressions are made for your custom-fitted crowns or bridges.
  • Porcelain veneer application: Minimal enamel is removed for proper veneer placement, and the veneers are bonded to the tooth’s surface for a natural appearance.

Finishing Touches & Follow-Up Appointments

If your full mouth restoration involves implants, and sufficient fusion of the implant and bone has taken place, your crown will be placed to complete the dental implant process.

Your restorations will be adjusted to ensure the bite and fit are ideal for your comfort and dental function.

Dr. Sands will explain the importance of proper oral care and attending your regular dental appointments to monitor healing and maintain the longevity of your restorations.
