Have you considered a full mouth restoration? Do you have one or more missing teeth? Do you have a chipped, broken or worn tooth? Do you have a bad bite that makes it difficult for you to chew food or even speak properly? These are all dental problems that can be addressed by cosmetic and restorative treatments. If you are unhappy with several aspects of the functional and aesthetic aspects of your smile, a dentist can perform a complete restoration of your mouth to give you the exact smile that you want.
Full Mouth Rehabiliation (FMR) Process
A full mouth rehabilitation (FMR) process typically involves multiple procedures and phases of treatment that may encompass the cosmetic dentistry techniques as well as the science of neuromuscular dentistry. Through the restoration and rebuilding of multiple teeth in the front and back regions of the mouth, full mouth reconstruction offers you an attractive smile line that complements your individual facial aesthetics.
The restorative aspects of FMR replaces missing teeth or repairs damaged teeth – including also the correction of irregular bites. The cosmetic side of the procedures enhances the appearance of your teeth by making them brighter and more healthy looking. This may be achieved though teeth whitening treatments or porcelain veneers that hide dental imperfections like cracks, stains and chips. The FMR procedure may be performed by a team of dental experts including general, cosmetic or restorative dentists. In some cases, dental specialists like periodontists, endodontists and orthodontists may be involved to deal with more specialised areas of concerns.
