Full Mouth Restoration: Resuscitate Your Smile
Millions of people live with discolored, chipped, and missing teeth, believing their smiles to be beyond salvation. At Dr. Jose Valenzuela’s implant and cosmetic dentistry practice, serving Palm Springs, Yuma, and the entire Southwest, even the most damaged smiles, in need of the most complex restorative work, can be transformed. Through a full mouth restoration, in which multiple treatments are combined to create the ideal smile, patients have a second chance to have a mouth full of healthy, attractive teeth.
The foundation of many full mouth restorations is dental implants. Dental implants are titanium posts surgically placed into the jawbone, where they act as artificial tooth roots. After these posts have healed into place, dental implants can be used to support custom-crafted dental crowns, bridges, or dentures, effectively filling the gaps in a smile.
Once missing teeth have been replaced, remaining teeth can be treated through various restorative and cosmetic dentistry procedures. Teeth that are cracked, chipped, stained, or separated by gaps can be covered with porcelain veneers. Veneers are made from the highest-grade porcelain, which mimics the properties of natural tooth enamel. They are attached to the front surfaces of teeth to conceal aesthetic damage, and are customized to match the color, texture, size, and shape of surrounding teeth. Those teeth that are basically healthy and well-formed can be brightened with Zoom!® teeth whitening.
If you are dissatisfied with the appearance of your smile due to missing or aesthetically flawed teeth, Dr. Jose Valenzuela can help. Contact his cosmetic and implant dentistry practice, serving Palm Springs, Yuma, and the Southwest, today.
