Smile Makeover

makeover

When you need dental treatment that will rebuild or restore all of your teeth in the upper and lower jaw areas, you will be undergoing full mouth reconstruction. Also known as full mouth restoration or rehabilitation, the procedures and services performed in full mouth reconstruction can span several months and years. These procedures typically involve several dental specialists including periodontists, oral surgeons, orthodontists, endodontists and general dentists because each specialist can address your specific and unique needs.

Reasons To Undergo A Smile Makeover

There are a number of reasons you might undergo full mouth reconstruction, including:

  • Restoring missing teeth as a result of tooth decay, injury, trauma or periodontal disease
  • Replacing or restoring teeth that have been fractured
  • Replacing teeth that have become severely worn down due to long-term acid erosion or bruxism (tooth grinding)
  • Improving bite and overall functioning of your teeth and jaw

Before You Undergo A Smile Makeover

Our dental office can perform a comprehensive dental exam to determine whether you are a good candidate for full mouth reconstruction. The exam will focus on:

Condition of your teeth

Any cavities, decay, cracks, root canal issues, loose teeth, and short or long teeth will need to be addressed with procedures such as crowns, bridges, implants, inlays, onlays or even veneers.

Periodontal issues

If there is any indication of gum disease, you might need a non-surgical scaling and root planing procedure or more intensive treatments such as surgery. Our team of professionals will need to prepare your teeth and gums for the reconstruction phases.

Temporomandibular joint functioning

We will determine the state of your bite and whether or not chewing and daily activities are interfering with the health of your teeth. Your occlusion (the way in which your teeth fit together) as well as the overall health of your jaw joints will need to be reviewed before undergoing any type of reconstructive procedure.

Esthetics

We will take a closer look at the overall appearance of your teeth and evaluate their size and proportions. We will also evaluate how your teeth look in relation to your gums, lips, mouth, and overall facial structure.

Smile Makeover Procedures

Since every case is unique, our dental team determines exactly which procedures you will need for full mouth reconstruction. Most procedures are performed in a series of phases, and the entire treatment process can take up to 12 months or more. Procedures may include:

  • Prophylactic teeth cleaning and periodontal treatment
  • Crown lengthening
  • Orthognathic surgery
  • Gum tissue contouring
  • Reduction of tooth structure
  • Temporary restorations
  • Permanent restorations such as crowns, veneers, inlays, onlays and bridges
  • Orthodontics
  • Implants and/or anchor bridge restorations
  • Bone or soft tissue grafting

Our Happy Patients

"I was going to another dentist who didn't quite get it... after switching to Dr. Shlafer I now know how THE BEST DENTIST ever operates! Dr. Shlafer first treated me for a bite-issue that would not go away. Soon after my first visit I was pain-free! Recently I had an area where food often got stuck - after Dr. Shlafer worked his magic I no longer have that issue. I drive all the way from Highland Township to see Dr. Shlafer -- and, it's well worth it. No matter where you live Dr. Shlafer is the ONLY dentist that I'd recommend. Thanks Doc!"

"The staff here is stellar. I've been going here for years now and have never had a bad experience. The women at the desk greet everyone by name, and the doctor remembers everything you tell him about yourself. Everyone here knows what they're doing, a trip here is never a hassle, and they'll always keep your best interest in mind."

"I am a patient of Dr. Shlafer and he has helped me tremendously. I had to have a lot corrective dentistry done and I sought out Dr. Shlafer to take on the challenge. I have told many people that he is a master in his field. He pays attention to the details and is extremely skilled in his craft way beyond normal denistry. I send all my friends and family to him especially if there is something out of the ordinary that needs to be done. He has advanced training and can take on serious issues."
