Have you given up on having a perfect smile because you have so many dental issues? A full mouth rehabilitation can take care of all of full mouth rehabilitationyour problems and restore your smile. Dr. Ernest Skaggs, your Radcliff, KY family dentist, explains how a full mouth rehabilitation works.

A unique treatment plan

Your dentist examines your mouth and develops a detailed treatment plan that addresses all of your issues, including problems with your teeth, gums or bite. Your custom treatment plan includes details regarding each procedure that will be performed and treatment timeline.

How can my Radcliff dentist restore my smile?

Treatment plan details vary depending on the type of dental problems. Your dentist may use a variety of cosmetic dental procedures, including:

1. Crowns: Crowns encase your tooth and are used to strengthen broken, fragile or damaged teeth, or conceal imperfections.

2. Bridges and dentures: Bridges and dentures offer an effective solution to missing teeth and allow you to bite, chew and speak normally. Bridges consist of two crowns that anchor one or more false teeth. They're usually permanently attached to your mouth, although removable bridges are also available. Dentures replace an entire row of teeth and can be used to replace the teeth in both your upper and lower jaws.

3. Dental implants: Dental implants offer a more long-lasting solution to tooth loss than bridges and dentures. Implants replace the roots of your teeth and provide a stable foundation for an artificial tooth. Because implants bond to your jawbone, they usually never have to be replaced. Implants are a good choice whether you've lost one tooth or all of them.

4. Fillings: Fillings restore teeth damaged by cavities. They not only fill the space in your tooth but also seal it.

5. Teeth whitening: Professional teeth whitening can lighten your teeth an average three to eight shades in about an hour. Your results can last for several years if you avoid foods and drinks that can stain teeth.

6. Dental veneers: Thin porcelain dental veneers are attached to the fronts of your teeth and cover a variety of imperfections, including discolorations, chips, cracks, slightly gaps and oddly shaped teeth. They're a good choice for all-over whitening if teeth whitening doesn't get your teeth as white as you would like.
