For La Jolla residents who need both cosmetic and functional dental treatment, a full mouth rehabilitation may be in order. Combining a number of different dental procedures, Dr. Winter of Sarah Winter Dental approaches full mouth rehabilitations by looking not only at obvious cosmetic work that needs to be done but also examining the whole mouth including ligaments, bone, muscle, gums, and teeth. As such, a full mouth restoration may include combining different dental procedures. Read more about these procedures that Dr. Winter performs below.
These tooth facades can be an important part of a full mouth rehabilitation. Porcelain veneers can cover teeth gaps, uneven teeth, worn out teeth, and chipped or broken teeth. Porcelain veneers can give you something to smile about!
Dental crowns are often placed on a tooth that is either broken or needs functional work, such as a root canal or a deep cavity drilled. In years past, dental crowns were made of gold, today’s dental crowns are tooth colored and natural looking.
Clear Braces or Invisalign
If you have misaligned or crowded teeth, you likely want them straightened out stat! La Jolla residents who work with Dr. Winter have two options to choose from, either clear braces or Invisalign. Worn for a varied amount of time ranging from 6 months to a year*, both of these solutions can straighten out your teeth, so they are not only cosmetically appealing but prevent other dental issues from occurring such as plaque buildup or tooth decay.
If your teeth are discolored or stained, then teeth whitening can renew their brilliance and can be performed either in our office or if you prefer, at home using take-home trays.
Working With Dr. Winter’s Trusted La Jolla Area Partners
Sometimes, a full mouth rehabilitation requires a La Jolla patient to work with a specialist in a different domain. Dr. Winter has several trusted contacts in the San Diego area for these types of procedures, including:
- Tooth extractions to remove diseased teeth.
- Dental implant placements to put permanent replacement teeth in place of missing or extracted teeth.
- Jawbone grafts to “grow” adequate jawbone tissue for the placement of dental implants.
- Gum grafts to replace lost or worn out gums that are no longer covering your tooth roots.
Every Treatment Plan Will Be Different
As you can see, there are a variety of different dental procedures that can be included in a full mouth rehabilitation. Therefore, every treatment plan will be different. What’s right for your full mouth reconstruction may differ from another patient’s needs.
