What Is Full Mouth Reconstruction?
A full mouth reconstruction is not necessarily a single dental treatment. It’s often a highly customized treatment plan that offers patients a chance to change their lives. Our team has cared for patients with severe tooth loss, extensive dental damage, dental injuries, or those who simply haven’t had access to proper dental care in the past. Allow the team at South Hills Dental Arts to restore your oral health and your confidence.
The Full Mouth Reconstruction Process
Evaluation & Treatment Plan
Your evaluation starts with our team getting an understanding of your dental goals and expectations. Next, we’ll use digital images to create a 3D model of your mouth. This allows us to closely examine your bite, tooth structure, and the extent of the damage. Using this information, we’ll create a treatment plan that aligns with your ideal results.
Depending on your needs and treatment plan, you may require preparatory procedures before your restorations can be placed. Some of these treatments could include root canal therapy, bone and/or soft tissue grafting, tooth extractions, or the placement of dental implants.
While you’re healing from your preparatory procedures, we will use the digital images and 3D model of your mouth to craft a custom restoration specifically for you. We can also color-match your restoration to the shade of your natural teeth. Once you’re fully healed, we’ll attach your new restoration and transform your smile.

The timeline is completely dependent on your particular case. Once we’ve identified your needs and goals, and which procedures will be necessary to give you the smile you want, we will be able to offer an initial timeline.
Individually, simpler procedures can take anywhere from a day (teeth whitening and CEREC same-day crowns) to a few weeks (veneers).
