Dental Reconstruction Melbourne VIC
Dental reconstruction can involve multiple cosmetic procedures to rebuild and restore teeth in the upper and lower jaw. A full mouth reconstruction can involve both your dentist, as well as specialists depending on the type of work you require and the extent of damage to the teeth and gums.
Seeking out dental reconstruction work can be a daunting process but can have a positive effect on your dental health as well as improve the aesthetics of your smile. Our cosmetic dentists have seen many cases over the years and have performed restorative work to repair teeth for multiple reasons. Trust you are in experienced, capable hands to repair your smile, who can provide you with realistic expectations for the procedures.
There are several reasons why you may need reconstructive work, including:
Trauma or injury: Damage to the jaw can affect your teeth.
Occlusion: A misaligned bite can cause ongoing pain and discomfort, requiring surgery to fix.
Bruxism (teeth grinding): Worn down and damaged teeth may require extensive work to repair.
Decay: Long-term acid erosion can cause extensive damage to the teeth and gums.
What Does Dental Reconstruction Involve?
There are multiple procedures which can be used in dental reconstruction, and these can be carried out over a series of visits. Depending on the extent of work you require, your procedures may take several months to complete. Dental work can include:
- Porcelain veneers
- Dental implants
- Gum Lift
- Bone or tissue grafting
You may also need one or more visits to prepare your mouth for various procedures. Your dentist will explain each stage clearly and we understand visiting the dentist can be a nervous experience for some patients, especially for surgical procedures. Fine Dentistry also offers sleep dentistry options to minimise anxiety and help you to receive the treatment you require.
