Have you been told that you have “hopeless” teeth? Do you hide your smile due to discomfort or embarrassment about your appearance?
Dr. Catherine Wilder and Dr. Lauren Shepard provide full mouth reconstructions to patients in Katy, TX. Full mouth reconstructions, or rehabilitation, use a variety of treatments to restore teeth and gum health. Patients with tooth damage, missing teeth, or advanced gum disease can restore the health and beauty of their smile at Katy Smile Design.
Every patient is different, which is why Dr. Wilder and Dr. Shepard get to know patients as individuals to better understand their needs and aesthetic goals. Patients often undergo a full mouth reconstruction over multiple office visits. Our dentists will create a custom treatment plan for you to find which procedures are needed to rebuild and restore your smile.
Full Mouth Reconstruction Treatments
We utilize different types of treatments to address these dental problems:
Porcelain veneers, tooth bonding, and dental crowns are all treatments used to address tooth damage. Chips, cracks, and fractures in the tooth enamel may be covered and protected from further damage. Dental veneers are thin shells of porcelain ceramic that are permanently bonded to the front of teeth. Tooth bonding similarly treats damage but is best for chips and cracks in the enamel. Dental crowns are porcelain ceramic caps that fully cover the teeth.
Dental implants and implant restorations can restore one or more lost teeth. Tooth implants may also be used to support dental bridges or dentures. Dental bridges are prosthetic teeth that replace multiple missing teeth. Full or partial dentures restore rows or arches of lost teeth. Dental implants ensure that single tooth or multiple tooth restorations that last for many years to come.
Dental and Gum Infections
Tooth extractions and periodontal therapy are treatment methods that help remove tooth and gum infections. Dental extractions are needed when patients have severely infected teeth that need to be removed. Removing these teeth improves the health of surrounding teeth and lessens the spread of a dental infection. Periodontal therapy addresses gum disease by removing bacterial infections around and beneath the gums.
