It’s that time of year again! You’ll soon be sitting down for Thanksgiving dinner. Are your teeth ready to bite into that succulent turkey leg and those scrumptious vegetables?
If your teeth are in need of repair, consider a full-mouth reconstruction at Tieken Smiles! We can get all your teeth back in working order in our League City, TX dental office so your holiday is everything it’s meant to be.
Today, our team is telling you all you need to know about the full-mouth reconstruction process and how it can help you enjoy Thanksgiving and all the delightful holiday seasons to follow!
How A Full-Mouth Reconstruction Helps You
As strong as our teeth are, they don’t always last forever. Life can throw you curveballs, and your teeth can become damaged. Restorative dentistry is used to repair such damage as:
-Stains & Discoloration
-Knocked Out Or Missing Teeth
-Chips, Dents, & Cracks
-Decayed Or Infected Teeth
Sometimes, damaged teeth will need more than just one restorative procedure to bring function back. That’s when Dr. Tieken would need to design a methodical series of treatments to fully restore your smile.
How Your Full-Mouth Reconstruction Looks
Your full-mouth reconstruction will be customized for your needs, so it’s going to look different than someone else’s treatment plan. But here are some of the procedures you might find in a full-mouth reconstruction process:
Dental Implants For Missing Teeth
The best option if you’re looking to replace several missing teeth are dental implants. Acting as an artificial tooth root, the implant is placed inside your jawbone. It’s capped by a natural-looking dental crown for a fully-restored, powerful bite that’s nearly as strong as that of healthy teeth.
Dental implants preserve your facial and bone structure so that your remaining teeth and gums continue to work to their full potential and keep your beautiful smile intact!
Dental Crowns & Bridges For A Lost Tooth
Missing even one tooth can be embarrassing enough, and if given enough time before replacement, just as threatening to your oral health. It also can affect your ability to eat comfortably, and Thanksgiving isn’t the time to worry about that!
Many times, a single tooth can be replaced with a dental bridge. This is where a dental crown is placed where the tooth used to be and kept in place by restorations on each side.
Dental crowns and bridges look so natural here at Tieken Smiles, unless you tell someone about your dental work, they’ll never even notice! The best part is that you can restore your comfortable, strong bite and enjoy your holiday dinner!
All-On-4 Implant Dentures
If you’re in need of a full-arch replacement, you’re options are not limited to traditional dentures. That’s because with All-On-4 implant dentures, Dr. Tieken can strategically place four dental implants to keep your arch firmly locked in place.
You can care for your teeth easily, preserve good oral health and bone growth, and be able to eat food with comfort and confidence!
Veneers For A Bright, Flawless Smile
Dental veneers are a powerful, transformative option for damaged teeth. That’s thanks to how they cover flaws like chips, cracks, stains, and gaps with little to no modification to your enamel. Veneers are bonded to your teeth and shaped to perfection by Dr. Tieken.
With veneers, you can have a smile that rivals the ones you see from celebrities on the silver screen. They’re like instant orthodontics and a permanent teeth whitener in one!
