Scaffold Your Smile with NYC Full-Mouth Reconstruction

It’s all part of the ever-changing infrastructure, a necessary side effect of working toward a better-looking metropolis. So the question is: If you could put scaffolding on yourself, would you place it in front of your teeth? Many smile makeover patients think of NYC full-mouth reconstruction as the route to flawless, healthy teeth. Your Manhattan cosmetic dentist agrees.

Identify Whether You Have a Broken-Down Smile

How do you know if your smile is broken-down? Simple – you answer yes to one or more of the following questions:

  • Is your old dental work deteriorating or falling out?
  • Are your teeth stained or discolored?
  • Do you have receding gums?
  • Do you have mouth, jaw, or tooth pain?

A broken-down smile is structurally compromised. Often, through no fault of your own other than aging, your dental circumstances get wobbly and your teeth just can’t work properly and don’t look as good as they once did.

Transforming Worn-Out Teeth

A worn-out smile contains teeth and gums that have worked hard, so hard in fact that they might be falling apart and in need of serious TLC. Full-mouth reconstruction, which typically consists of multiple cosmetic, restorative, and neuromuscular procedures, is the structure needed to give you a new smile. Here are some of the treatments that might be used to get the job done:

  • Gum disease treatment: Many people with worn-out smiles find themselves suffering from gum disease, often the root of all their problems. To be eligible for smile restoration procedures, the gums must be treated and cleaned up first.
  • Dental implants: Missing teeth are a serious problem, no matter where they are in your mouth. Filling the empty spots makes your jaw stronger and completes your smile.
  • Porcelain crowns: Crowns cover up misshapen teeth, deteriorating fillings, impossible stains, and teeth that require root canal therapy. They cap the tooth in question and blend right into the rest of your tooth enamel.
  • Tooth-colored fillings: Composite fillings work as both a cosmetic and restorative measure, correcting cavities or damaged teeth and making teeth look new again.
  • Porcelain veneers: Once your smile is healthy and strong and can serve as a foundation for cosmetic upgrade, minimal-prep veneers can be customized to transform top and bottom teeth into a stunning, white, natural-looking smile.
  • Teeth whitening: Often a great accompaniment to NYC full-mouth reconstruction is a professional bleaching session that knocks out stains and blasts away discoloration to make your teeth look as white as they possibly can.

Quite often, full-mouth reconstruction consists of a combination of restorative and cosmetic dentistry procedures but, ultimately, both types of treatments work together to create a smile that is strong, fully functional, and stunning.
