Frequently asked questions about full mouth reconstruction

The goal of complete smile rehabilitation is to improve your smile’s overall health, function, and appearance.
Anyone unhappy with their smile’s function or appearance may be a candidate for full mouth reconstruction. However, it is vital that you consult with a qualified dentist or oral surgeon to determine if this treatment is right for you.
The benefits of full mouth reconstruction can vary depending on the individual. However, some common benefits include improved oral health, function, and aesthetics.
The first step in complete mouth rehabilitation is to consult with a qualified dentist or oral surgeon.

Once you have decided to move forward with this treatment, your dentist will create a personalized treatment plan for you. This treatment plan might include a combination of dental procedures, such as crowns, bridges, implants, veneers, or orthodontics. The specific treatments used will depend on your individual needs and goals.

Generally speaking, no. Dental insurance plans have extremely low annual expense caps that might cover 10% of the cost over many years. Insurance coverage varies depending on your individual policy.
