Dental techniques and materials have advanced to a point where total and near-total mouth restoration is possible, here at Ray McKinley DDS & Brittany McKinley-Holloway DDS — McKinley General, Cosmetic & Implant Dentistry in Shelby Township.
Unlike traditional removable dentures, complete mouth reconstruction requires strong, functional, and aesthetically pleasing teeth with roots permanently anchored into the jaw bone.
You have probably heard about dental implants: the tooth replacement option that is, in most cases, the ideal replacement for a missing tooth.
Dental implants have been used for many years to replace one or two missing teeth. However, they can also provide a framework for crowns, bridges, and anchored dentures that replace nearly every tooth in the mouth!
Every smile transformation patient requires a unique combination of cosmetic dental procedures, but let’s talk about a hypothetical case involving numerous restorations:
‘Linda’ was a 52-year-old woman with a mouthful of problems. She was missing most of her back teeth on both her upper and lower arch. Four of her original teeth were cracked and her gums had receded revealing the metal bases of two old crowns.
To restore a beautiful, strong, and youthful-looking smile, she received dental implants to anchor partial dentures for her upper and lower back teeth. After soft tissue grafts, her front teeth would receive a combination of porcelain crowns and veneers.
The result? A stunning smile, renewed confidence, and no more slipping dentures!
