Smile Makeover, also known as full mouth reconstructions, full mouth rehabilitation, or full mouth restoration, is a comprehensive treatment approach that involves rebuilding or restoring all of the teeth in the upper and lower jaws. This may include a combination of restorative, cosmetic, and orthodontic procedures to improve the function, health, and appearance of the teeth and gums.
Full mouth rehabilitation is typically recommended for patients who have multiple missing, damaged, or decayed teeth, as well as those with bite problems or jaw joint issues. The treatment plan is customized to each individual patient’s needs and may involve a variety of procedures, such as dental implants, crowns & bridges, veneers, orthodontics, and gum surgery.
The goal of full mouth reconstructions is to improve the overall oral health and function of the mouth, as well as to enhance the aesthetic appearance of the teeth and smile. It can be a complex and time-consuming process, but the results can be life-changing for patients who have been struggling with dental issues for a long time. It is important to consult with a qualified prosthodontist to determine if full mouth rehabilitation is the right option for you.

1. Severely worn teeth

Oral hygiene after full mouth rehabilitation
Patient still needs to take a good care of oral hygiene because cavity can still occur under the restorations. Regular check-up every 6 months is still mandatory to maintain good oral hygiene.
