What Is Full Mouth Reconstruction?
Full mouth reconstruction is a set of procedures intended to restore health, functionality, and aesthetic beauty back to your smile. Crowns and bridges, veneers, orthodontics, and dental implants could be used alone or in combination during a full mouth reconstruction treatment. At Carpenter Dental, Chad M. Carpenter DDS has 10 plus years of experience in full mouth restoration procedures. With the use of cutting-edge dental technology, we offer treatment that is adapted to each patient’s unique oral health requirements, as well as their unique budgets. With dental reconstruction, we can assist you in getting back to living a comfortable, confident life founded on pristine oral health and a gorgeous smile!
While functional dental issues are the focus of full mouth restoration, your smile will also look better from a cosmetic standpoint. We examine each patient’s facial characteristics and symmetry, lip and gum line, and even subtle factors such as skin tone while arranging a restoration treatment. A dental reconstruction treatment could take days, weeks, or months depending on the severity of the condition. To establish a solid foundation, the first step is to eliminate gum disease and soft tissue infection. Next, we can move on to cosmetic procedures such as crowns, veneers, and whitening treatments. Your stunning new smile and newly discovered confidence will be on full display from the moment you step out of our Rapid City, SD, practice.

The Dangers of Delaying or Avoiding Treatment
For patients that need oral health reconstruction, it’s important to seek professional treatment as soon as possible. When treatments are delayed, serious consequences can ensue, including advanced tooth decay and gum disease, the development of TMJ pain, and even an increased risk for diseases such as stroke, diabetes, and heart disease. The good news is, if you have been suffering from any of the above-mentioned symptoms, you can have a second chance at oral health – and it all starts with a consultation visit with Dr. Carpenter at Carpenter Dental in Rapid City, SD.
During your consultation exam, we will make sure your therapy is customized to meet all your needs. We welcome you to talk about the issues you’ve been having, and we will develop an appropriate course of action based on detailed digital scans of your oral arch. Our treatment plan will consider both functional and aesthetic factors, as well as budget. To provide payments that are affordable for you, we work with third-party financing partners and accept Delta Dental insurance.
Dental Reconstruction Treatments Options
Crowns and Bridges
A dental crown is essentially a tooth cap that fits over the top of a tooth that has been repaired or broken. Crowns can restore a tooth’s size, shape, and/or color, and can increase the strength and durability of a tooth, and even restore a dental implant. A dental bridge is essentially a series of crowns that spans vacant space left by missing teeth.
Porcelain veneers are thin, tooth-colored shells that are placed over the front portion of the teeth to hide cosmetic imperfections such as chips, cracks, gaps, discoloration, and/or misalignment. Most often placed on teeth that are visible when you smile, veneers are frequently used in smile makeover procedures.
In just a single professional whitening treatment, Carpenter Dental can brighten severely stained or discolored teeth many shades whiter. Professional-grade bleaching solutions are tailored to each patient’s preferences to produce striking, long-lasting, natural-looking results.
Dental implants consist of a restoration (tooth crown) that is fixed to an implant post using an abutment. The implant post is surgically inserted into the jaw, meaning the implant is fixed in place to restore normal biting and chewing capability, as well as natural smile aesthetics.
A root canal involves removing inflammatory or infected pulp below the gums. The pulp is thoroughly cleansed and sterilized, then the gap is filled and sealed. Root canal therapy is intended to clean out an infected tooth root to avoid tooth decay brought on by soft tissue infection.
A filling is used to repair a hole in a tooth brought on by a cavity. Dr. Carpenter will first remove the decayed tooth tissue from the cavity, before filling it with a durable, long-lasting composite material.
