If you’ve looked at before and after photos of our patients, you know that dental implants from Beveridge Dental in San Jose transform smiles. They are commonly used in smile makeovers and complete mouth reconstruction.
Dental implants restore form and function. Since they are both cosmetic and restorative leads us to a common question: What’s the difference between a makeover and full mouth reconstruction?
They may include similar procedures, but they are not mean the same thing. A basic difference is the principal goal for each type of treatment.
A cosmetic smile makeover
With a smile makeover the main objective is to create a beautiful smile. The patient may want to realign their teeth into a more pleasing configuration. They may want to whiten stained teeth, repair chipped teeth, or replace old silver fillings.
Complete mouth reconstruction
The goal of mouth reconstruction is to restore damaged or missing teeth, and natural tooth function.
Procedures include root canals, dental implants, or crowns. Total mouth reconstruction has the benefit of a better smile, but that’s secondary.
Dental implants play a starring role in both smile makeovers and total mouth reconstruction. At Beveridge Dental in San Jose we can do both. Patients from Los Gatos, Saratoga, and Willow Glen have come to us to improve their smiles. Please visit our smile gallery, and schedule an appointment today!
