Fresno, CA dentist Dr. Claudia Denes corrects dental issues such as malocclusion (bad bite), TMJ disorder, damaged or missing teeth, and unattractive smiles with a comprehensive procedure, full mouth reconstruction. A properly functioning mouth consists of a strong jawbone, healthy gums, and a full set of teeth. At Fresno Dental Studio, we use full mouth reconstruction to enhance function and appearance, ultimately improving oral health.

Dr. Denes begins full mouth reconstruction by determining appropriate restorative treatments. CBCT scans, digital x-rays, and dental impressions are taken to create a precise treatment plan. Patients can expect to receive phased dentistry; meaning procedures are broken up into stages and spread out over multiple dental visits. Dr. Denes completes full mouth reconstruction with cosmetic procedures to establish a beautiful smile.

If full mouth reconstruction sounds appropriate for your dental issues, call 559-297-1294 today to schedule an appointment in Fresno, CA. Dr. Denes and our experienced team will examine your smile and recommend ideal procedures to improve overall oral function.

What Does Full Mouth Reconstruction Correct?

Patients with missing, worn, broken, chipped, fractured, or stained teeth qualify for full mouth reconstruction. Additionally, this procedure corrects severe gum disease and tooth decay. If you frequently experience intense migraines or wake up with a sore jaw, you may suffer from TMJ disorder, making you a viable candidate for full mouth reconstruction.

Restorative Procedures

Before she can begin full mouth reconstruction, Dr. Denes must first address malocclusion. She performs treatment to correct a misaligned bite, which creates a dental base for future corrective procedures. If occlusion isn’t corrected, dental procedures won’t produce long-lasting results. Rather, your smile will relapse back to a poorly functioning, unhealthy, unattractive state.

Dr. Denes offers a wide variety of restorative dental procedures. For chipped, broken, or fractured teeth, she often recommends a dental filling. During this treatment, Dr. Denes uses a composite resin to fill in minor flaws. The resin is shaped to reflect a natural tooth and colored to match surrounding teeth. The resin is hardened with a special light, which creates a strong repair.

Gum disease is deterred through periodontal cleanings and treatment. Dr. Denes will thoroughly clean bacteria from the gums to repair poor periodontal health. Root planing and scaling are common periodontal procedures.

Other restorative procedures can include:

  • Dental crowns
  • Extractions
  • Root canal therapy
  • Dental implants
  • Orthodontic treatment

Cosmetic Touches

To finalize your full mouth reconstruction, Dr. Denes recommends cosmetic procedures. Stained teeth are often corrected with laser teeth whitening. However, in severe cases, Dr. Denes uses a porcelain veneer to conceal the imperfect tooth. She fabricates a thin, translucent shell from porcelain and permanently bonds it to the front of a flawed tooth, completely changing the tooth’s appearance.

Along with covering a stained tooth, porcelain veneers are used to alter the appearance of gapped, oddly shaped, misaligned, and short teeth. Veneers produce instant results and are an ideal procedure for most cosmetic issues.

Dr. Denes offers dental bonding for patients who aren’t fully committed to dental veneers. Bonding is a reversible procedure, where porcelain veneers are permanent.
