It can be disheartening to look at your smile and feel like there’s just too much work to be done ever to have a smile you can be proud of. But if issues with your teeth are robbing you of the ability to live your life to the fullest, help is out there.
At the Woodbury, MN dentist office of Dr. Mark Wilhelm, we regularly see patients who seem to have lost hope. By coming to see us, you’re taking the first step toward solutions that can and will, deliver life-changing results.
We offer customized plans known as full-mouth reconstructions, for patients with several dental concerns. If you’re tired of living with tooth decay, missing teeth, and more, we’re confident a full-mouth reconstruction can give you your life back.
What Is Full-Mouth Reconstruction?
A full-mouth reconstruction is like a complete makeover for your smile. A plan tailored to suit your individual needs can:
- Replace missing teeth
- Improve the appearance of your smile
- Improve your oral health
- Restore your ability to eat comfortably
- Prevent future dental problems
- Give you your life back
At our office, all of our restorative dentistry treatments can be considered for a full-mouth reconstruction that will restore the function and look of your smile. Learn more about the treatments that are available for you to find out which ones you believe you may benefit from the most.
A dental crown is an option for patients with broken teeth or teeth damaged by decay, wear, or injury. At our office, we offer the following types of crowns:
- Traditional dental crowns
These porcelain caps fit over damaged teeth and look just like the real thing. We can use traditional dental crowns to protect moderately to severely cracked teeth from cracking further. They can also be used to keep all the pieces of a broken tooth together while protecting against dangerous bacteria and infection. These crowns allow you to use your tooth again without pain or discomfort.
- Implant restoration
Implant restoration crowns are more like replacement teeth than caps. The crown is securely attached to a dental implant to replace individual teeth that you have lost or that had to be extracted.
- Inlays and Onlays
Known as “partial crowns,” because they’re like the middle ground between a complete dental crown and a dental filling. An inlay is used for the inside biting surface of a tooth, while an onlay is used for the outer biting surface.
Dental bridges, like crowns, are used to repair broken or damaged or teeth. There are two types of bridges offered in our office.
- Fixed bridge
A fixed bridge uses two crowns and a replacement tooth secured between them. The crowns go over teeth on either side of the space left by a lost tooth to hold the bridge in place.
- Implant-supported bridge
If you’ve lost three or more teeth, you might benefit from an implant-supported bridge. For this treatment option, we place dental implants, then attach the bridge to the implants to fill the space and restore your smile.
A dental implant is a solution for one or more missing teeth that can provide stability and keep your bone healthy. We offer implants to replace a single lost tooth or several missing teeth.
If you’re missing several teeth, All-on-4® and All-on-6 can restore your smile without having to place an implant for each tooth you’re missing.
We also offer implant-retained and implant-supported dentures. The use of implants ensures that your dentures are secure in your mouth.
Speaking of dentures, they’re a great option for patients who need to replace several or all of their teeth. We offer full, partial, and temporary dentures, as well as implant-supported and implant-retained dentures as mentioned above.
Dental veneers are technically meant for cosmetic purposes, but they can effectively fix cracked or chipped teeth to protect them from getting worse. Dental veneers are also a great option for patients with misshapen teeth or gaps between their teeth. Our porcelain veneers can dramatically improve the appearance and function of your smile.
