As an expression of your character and the first impression you give to others, your smile is an investment.

Mouth reconstruction is a process that involves rebuilding and restoring all of the teeth. This procedure combines the use of dental crowns and bridges and porcelain veneers in order to create an all-inclusive solution to a less than satisfactory smile.
Because Dr. Newman has been practicing mouth reconstruction from Nashville for over ten years, he is a dentist you can trust will strive to deliver the very best results. If you’re interested in a reconstructive procedure, please contact our office for more information or to schedule a consultation.
Are You a Candidate?
Because mouth reconstruction involves an extensive set of procedures, it is important to be as informed as possible about the risks and requirements. During your consultation, Dr. Newman will take you through a comprehensive examination and can review your options with you in more detail. However, the need for full mouth reconstruction often results from:
- Decaying or lost teeth
- Injured or fractured teeth
- Teeth severely worn as a result of acidic erosion or teeth grinding
- Complaints of head, jaw, or muscle pain that require adjustments to the bite
If you and Dr. Newman decide that mouth reconstruction is the right course of action to take, he will examine your mouth to determine which combination of procedures will set you up for the result you’re expecting. He will specifically assess
- The condition of your teeth. It is important to note whether you have any decay, cavities, heavy wear, or cracks to determine if porcelain veneers, dental crowns, or dental bridges will be needed.
- The condition of your gums. If your gums are unhealthy, treatments for periodontal diseases may be required. Your gums will also be inspected for deep pockets and other irregularities.
- The condition of your bite. If you are unable to chew or close your mouth without feeling pain or causing particularly harsh wear on your teeth, you may need to undergo orthodontic care before additional reconstructive work can be done.
- The aesthetics of your teeth. The way your teeth, gums, lips, and mouth appear together is often one of the greatest payoffs of mouth reconstruction. The size and proportion as well as the shape and color of your teeth are all important factors in your treatment.
Mouth Reconstruction vs. Smile Makeover
Mouth reconstruction differs most from a smile makeover in that it is often implemented for the sake of the necessity of oral health, while a smile makeover is an elective procedure.
Beyond enhancing the appearance of your mouth and teeth, a full mouth reconstruction is designed to enhance their durability, function, and overall health.
If your oral health is at risk and you are interested in gathering more information about the benefits of a mouth reconstruction, please contact our Nashville office to schedule a consultation with Dr. Newman as soon as possible.
