Your oral health depends on a properly aligned bite, healthy soft tissues, and strong connective tissues and nerves. When any of these are out of sync, you may have tooth, mouth, or jaw pain, and difficulty maintaining good oral hygiene. Dr. Warr offers full mouth restorations that combine two or more restorative dentistry options. This combination of restorative and cosmetic dentistry ensures a correct bite alignment. It treats compromised teeth to provide a fully functioning mouth and protects your teeth from wear and tear, fractures, and bacteria.
If you’re missing one or more teeth or have oral health concerns, contact our experienced dentist at Warr Dental in Salt Lake City today at (801) 355-5385 to schedule your dental exam and consultation. Dr. Warr and our skilled team provide dental services to patients in nearby areas of Utah, including West Valley City and Draper.
A full mouth restoration can correct:
- Crooked teeth
- Gaps between teeth
- Decayed or deteriorating teeth
- Discolored or stained teeth
- Missing teeth
- Teeth that are worn out or are uneven
Worn-down teeth can contribute to a subtle but significant breakdown in the entire structure of your lower face, creating an aged appearance and an improper bite. Worn teeth also tend to get shorter, chipped, and discolored.
What is Restorative Dentistry?
Restorative dentistry involves the diagnosis, prevention, and treatment of tooth, gum, and jaw problems. This process of correcting and restoring oral health typically addresses issues such as oral disease and decaying, cracked, or missing teeth. There are many reasons your oral health may be suffering, and our dentist offers a variety of restorative dentistry options to give you back a healthy smile you’re proud to show off.
Restorative dentistry often involves tooth-colored or white fillings, porcelain crowns and bridges, dental implants, dentures, partial dentures, and gum treatment.
Full Mouth Restoration Options
Full Mouth Restoration refers to a custom combination of cosmetic and restorative dental procedures that may need to be performed on some or all of your teeth. Full mouth restoration completely repairs and enhances the form and function of your teeth, and may include:
We offer silver amalgam and tooth-colored composite resin fillings for cavities. While amalgam fillings—often called metal fillings—are perfectly safe, they can impede on the beauty of your smile, in which case, its tooth-colored counterpart would be best to restore your smile. Tooth-colored or white fillings are made to match the shade of your adjacent teeth.
Porcelain crowns are customized tooth caps that restore the shape, size, and appearance of a damaged tooth or dental implant. Bridges involve using artificial teeth to fill the gap caused by missing teeth. Porcelain crowns and bridges can restore a full mouth and come with additional cosmetic benefits such as addressing tooth discoloration and chips.
These are artificial tooth roots that are placed into your jawbone and connected to permanent synthetic teeth. Dental implants restore your smile and prevent further gum and bone recession caused by missing teeth. They are considered the most effective way to restore oral health and full function.
Dentures are removable and can be complete, meaning they replace all teeth when none are remaining, or partial, meaning they replace missing teeth when very few teeth are left in the mouth. Dentures and partial dentures can provide a complete smile, but they won’t prevent bone resorption. Dental implants are the best way to restore a fully functioning mouth as the titanium tooth root replaces your lost tooth root, which prevents jawbone degradation and maintains facial structure.
Several studies have linked gum disease to severe health concerns such as heart disease, stroke, and diabetes. Gum treatment can involve deep cleaning, medications, gum re-contouring, bone and tissue grafting, and surgery. Aging adults are at a higher risk of gum disease, especially if they have uncontrolled diabetes.
Multiple cosmetic dentistry options can be incorporated into your full-mouth restoration, such as porcelain veneers and teeth whitening. Porcelain veneers are thin shells that go over your existing teeth to correct tooth flaws. If you’re having dental implants, porcelain veneers, or a crown, teeth whitening can be an excellent complementary treatment as those options involved matching the shade of your existing teeth.
Serious pain in your jaw, significant headaches, and other annoying symptoms may signal a more serious condition called Temporomandibular Joint (TMJ) Disorder (TMD). In this case, a full-mouth restoration may combine the science of neuromuscular dentistry with cosmetic dentistry to restore a smile that is functional and healthy, in addition to being visually appealing.
