Whether because of neglect, traumatic injury, disease, or simply the continuous passage of time, many of us wish we had better teeth in one way or another. However, for those who want a complete redo, a reset button if you will, of the last ten, twenty, or even thirty years or more, Full Mouth Reconstruction or Rehabilitation may be the solution. With the right advice, expert guidance, and the steady hands of a world renowned prosthodontist, a transformative Complete Smile Makeover is very much within reach.
What is Full Mouth Reconstruction?
As the name implies, a full mouth reconstruction or rehabilitation involves a complete and total remaking and restoration of the critical components of the mouth to create a perfect smile. Procedures that may be necessary depending on your personal needs and desires include onlays, crowns, bridges, veneers, dental implants, and/or dentures just to name a handful. Generally speaking, a full mouth reconstructive procedure will directly or indirectly affect all or most of the teeth in a patient’s mouth. Of course, a full mouth reconstruction is more than just cosmetic, it also involves either completely or partially improving or restoring critical functions, including the ability to eat, speak, and smile. The goal is to create something that is both beautiful, practical and feels natural. Here at ArtLab Dentistry, we marry form and function to create truly exquisite smiles.
Why Full Mouth Reconstruction?
Our Full Mouth Reconstruction and Rehabilitation service is designed and tailored specifically for each person’s individual needs. Full mouth reconstruction is recommended for patients who exhibit severe tooth loss, decay, damage, or visual inconsistencies that affect many or all of their teeth. Victims of trauma or oral cancer may also be eligible for complete reconstructive dental work. Since a full restoration may necessitate a number of different individual procedures depending on the person in question, the best first step to take is to make a consultation appointment with Dr. Reshad to see if a Complete Smile Makeover is right for you.
A Smile Makeover isn't a single procedure, it's a process of carefully crafted and coordinated treatments designed to achieve your desires.
The Components of a Complete Smile Makeover
A Complete Smile Makeover at ArtLab Dentistry isn’t a single procedure, it’s a process. It’s a seamless sequence of carefully crafted and coordinated treatments designed to address the individual needs and desires of each patient. There is no one-size-fits-all approach to full mouth reconstruction and rehabilitation. Instead, like the design and construction of iconic architecture, smile creation is equal parts unique art and relentlessly methodical execution. It’s a synthesis of design and vision-casting on the one hand and precise execution on the other. At ArtLab Dentistry, we excel at both. We guide patients every step of the way during the design phase, providing real-time renderings, photographs, and even allow “test-driving” of some of our products, such as porcelain veneers, to help our clients better envision their perfect smile. The design phase is followed by the execution phase in which our world-class prosthodontists and dental staff bring our patients’ visions to life. Depending on the patient, this process may involve extensive reconstructive work performed in our state-of-the-art facilities as well as the custom crafting of individual prosthetics as needed.
3 Critical Considerations for a Smile Makeover
At ArtLab Dentistry, our approach is very simple. We meet with you in person. During our consultation, we discuss your vision for your smile, design and features and then develop a beautiful solution. We then bring your vision to life with the utmost care, consideration, and careful attention to both esthetics and functionality.
During our initial consultation as well as any follow-up appointments for your full mouth reconstruction and smile makeover, we will likely discuss the following critical considerations that address aesthetic, physical, and functional factors.
1. Aesthetic Considerations
Our professionally trained estheticians will help you select the right shade for your new teeth. In addition to choosing the perfect color, we will also help guide you in determining the ideal material options (such as porcelain or acrylic) for each of your applicable procedures. Patients who need All-on-4, for example, may need to choose whether to opt for zirconia bridges or acrylic.
In the ideal mouth, teeth are perfectly and evenly spaced from each other. We provide treatment options to address awkwardly spaced teeth and gaps as well as some procedures, such as dental implants, for replacing missing teeth. The goal is to not only address the physical location of each tooth but also improve functionality by eliminating food-trapping gaps and providing a better bite.
Teeth can be sculpted to match ideal proportions and shapes. For example, longer teeth often provide a visual cue of youthfulness since natural teeth typically wear down over time. Tooth shape can even give a smile masculine or feminine characteristics. More square teeth are ideal for men, while slightly tapered teeth are rated as more feminine. With crown extensions, implants, and other methods, we can rewind the clock decades on your teeth, giving you a younger, more brilliant smile.
65 percent of Americans have varying degrees of crooked teeth or malocclusion. Not only are crooked teeth aesthetically displeasing, but it can also have far-reaching social consequences. Did you know that nearly 38 percent of Americans will disqualify potential partners on the basis of misaligned and crooked teeth alone? We have solutions to help bring your delinquent teeth back in line.
Visual balance is essential. Like a fingerprint, each person's smile is 100 percent unique and formed with the other features of their face. Our talented estheticians and dental staff will work with you to help map out the perfect smile for you. We don’t just copy and paste a generic smile; we make sure that each patient has a final product delivered to them that reflects and enhances their unique beauty by carefully considering balance and overall visual harmony.
A full mouth reconstruction, or a smile makeover, goes far beyond just the teeth and gums. A complete makeover can also enhance and improve the very structure of the face itself. Treatments like the All-on-4 dental implants stimulate and encourage bone growth in the jaws which help give a fuller look to the face. Fuller lips, face, and cheeks can be achieved with the right dental procedures and a prosthodontist.
Not to be confused with a lip line, a smile line is an imaginary line along the incisal edges of the maxillary anterior teeth. It should mimic the curvature of the lower lip while smiling and is often utilized as a guide for determining how to design and shape your smile during reconstruction.
2. Physical Considerations
During the initial consultation and any followup appointments, we will thoroughly review your past medical history, including any existing oral or facial as well as general health conditions that may affect how the full mouth reconstructive process will proceed.

3. Functional Considerations
Timing of Procedures
Because a complete smile makeover will often involve a series of procedures to address each client's specific requirements and unique physical features, it is important to that we at ArtLab Dentistry work closely with you to develop a schedule that maximizes efficiency and comfort while minimizing costs and additional recovery time. On a construction site, one does not begin constructing the walls before pouring the foundation. In the same vein, our tailored processes are by their very nature highly coordinated affairs that may involve more than one appointment and varying lengths of recovery time.
TIMING OF PROCEDURES0%
Remember, your teeth, and by extension, your smile, are more than just an aesthetic asset. It is also a critical part of many daily activities including speaking, expressing emotion, and eating food. As such, the design of your new smile, and the procedures involved should always take into consideration functionality as well as aesthetics. Our staff will work with you to determine which procedures and prosthetics will not only work best for your needs but also improve functionality where possible.
Just like a natural smile, your new smile will also require regular care and maintenance. Depending on the procedures selected for your complete smile makeover, our staff will work with you to determine the best care routine to ensure not only a bright smile but also one that lasts for a very long time. Some reconstructive solutions may require regular follow-up appointments to allow for adjustments to fit, correct any shifting, or simply to ensure good functionality.
