Creating Your Treatment Plan
Our team works with each patient individually to determine his or her unique goals and concerns, while also taking into account any budgetary or scheduling restrictions. Whether you have insurance, are paying out of pocket, or using CareCredit℠, we can design a plan that you can afford.
The first step in your full mouth reconstruction journey is your consultation and evaluation. Our full mouth reconstruction dentist in Philadelphia may use digital x-rays, intraoral cameras, impressions, and other diagnostic technology to better understand any oral health issues. Your plan will address problems with your teeth as well as any foundational complications that exist within your jaw or gum tissue. By detecting and correcting any problems with the structure of your smile first, we are able to set the stage for a long-lasting, healthy appearance.
The type of dental treatments that are best-suited for you will depend upon your concerns and any hidden issues Dr. Leas discovers during your evaluation.
Correcting Damage and Decay
For individual teeth that suffer from decay or physical trauma, you may receive a dental filling or a dental inlay or onlay. Dental fillings fill the space left by tooth decay. They are placed and hardened directly within your tooth, where they strengthen it and prevent future damage. Dental inlays and onlays are sometimes referred to as indirect fillings, since they are created in a laboratory according to exact impressions of your teeth. We provide tooth-colored fillings and inlays and onlays for seamless restoration.
Replacing Missing Teeth
Many full mouth reconstruction cases involve the use of prostheses, like dental crowns, bridges, or dentures. For added support, Dr. Leas may recommend that you first receive dental implants. These titanium posts are surgically implanted within your jaw bone, which eventually fuses with your implants and stabilizes them. Your implants function like natural tooth roots, adding an extra level of support to your restorations.
Straightening Your Teeth
Since misalignment can make it difficult to properly clean your teeth, your full mouth reconstruction may also include orthodontic care. Dr. Leas uses Invisalign® clear plastic aligners to gradually straighten your teeth. Comparable in price and treatment time to traditional braces, Invisalign® is a more discreet treatment option that provides great results.
Beautifying Your Smile
A truly personalized full mouth reconstruction will address your cosmetic concerns as well as any restorative issues. Teeth whitening is a simple, inexpensive way to brighten your entire smile or match your natural teeth to any new, lighter-colored restorations. Porcelain veneers are custom-designed ceramic sheaths that fit on the front of your natural teeth, covering imperfections like cracks, stains, chips, and even slight crookedness. Cosmetic treatment can add the final touches to your full mouth reconstruction, creating a smile that you can be confident in both functionally and aesthetically.
