A full mouth makeover is a combination of several dental treatment procedures that are aimed at improving the overall oral health and aesthetics. The appearance of the smile wears off over time due to aging, wear of the teeth, discoloration, receding of gums, accumulation of plaque and tartar, cavities, etc. This can hinder your confidence and make you feel too conscious while attending social gatherings.
In such cases, you would require more than just one cosmetic dental procedure to beautify your smile. This is why we’re excited to offer a full mouth makeover that would cater to your specific needs and get you the smile that you’ve always been longing for. Dr. Richard Rutecki has been the field of dentistry for 3 decades now and brings his vast experience to the table to help his patients get the best dental care in the Goose Creek, SC area.
Full mouth makeover candidacy
When you visit our practice, we would carefully diagnose you visually and using our dental equipment to decide whether or not you are a good candidate for a full mouth makeover. Some of the factors we would consider are as follows:
- Broken or chipped teeth
- Malocclusion or change in the shape of the jaws
- Discolored teeth and accumulation of plaque and tartar
- Receding of gums and gum diseases
- Missing teeth
Full mouth makeover includes several treatment procedures aimed at various results. Here are some of them:
Replacing missing teeth: A missing tooth is a huge letdown as it could lead to embarrassment and make you feel uncomfortable while socializing with people. It can also hinder the biting and chewing ability of the person. We can help you get the tooth replaced using prosthetics, either in the form of dental implants or bridges. Dental implants are fixed to the jawbone, giving them higher stability, strength, and longevity. Bridges are held in place by crowns on both sides and serve as great aesthetic and functional restorations.
Whiten discolored teeth: Stained teeth can entirely ruin your smile and affect your overall facial appearance. They are most often caused due to excessive consumption of colored foods and improper brushing. We can get rid of the discoloration for you using teeth whitening methods.
•Restore damaged teeth: External trauma can damage the teeth, causing chipping, cracks, or even tooth fracture. This can get extremely painful and result in displeasing oral aesthetics. Such teeth can be restored using veneers, crowns, or composite bonding.
•Get rid of cavities: Cavities are caused due to improper oral hygiene and elevated bacterial activity in the mouth. The microbes in the accumulated plaque release acids that can erode the enamel. We use tooth-colored composite filling material to cover cavities. The cavity will be cleaned by removing the decay and disinfecting the tooth to avoid spreading even after the restoration.
•Gum contouring: The gums may recede due to infections and poor oral health. This makes the teeth look longer than they are, thereby exposing the root surfaces. Sometimes, the gums may overgrow as well, which makes them look puffy. Gum contouring surgery gives you the perfect gums and lets you flaunt a gorgeous smile.
