Full Mouth Rehabilitation
Full Mouth Rehabilitation is the process of fully restoring your smile, both clinically and cosmetically, with several different aspects of dentistry combined.
This process is the most rewarding service we provide. A smile makeover incorporates the use of restorative dentistry practices such as Invisalign, Veneers, Oral Surgery, Crowns, Implants, etc.
Crowns and Bridges
Crowns (commonly known as “caps”) are porcelain restorations that cover and protect the tooth. They are recommended after a root canal due to the fragility of the tooth, in order to preserve it from cracking and tooth loss. They are also used to salvage a tooth that has a large cavity or previous filling. Dr. Natour solely utilizes all-ceramic crowns due to their stability, longevity, and overall natural appearance (versus cheaper, lower quality alternatives).
A fixed dental bridge is a series of crowns that are fabricated together to replace missing teeth. They provide protection to adjacent teeth and support the missing teeth in between. According to the American Dental Association, missing teeth cause increased risk of periodontal disease, tooth decay on adjacent teeth, further loss of teeth, speech disorder and overall decrease in self-confidence. Missing teeth also decrease the patient’s chewing ability, leading to gastro-intestinal problems over time. There is also a strong correlation and increased risk of heart disease with periodontal disease.
Fillings are used to treat cavities, which are decayed portions of the tooth. We remove the decayed portion of the tooth and then “fill” the area to restore the tooth to its original shape and size. Fillings are also used to repair cracked or broken teeth, and teeth that have been worn down. Dr Natour only performs tooth-colored restorations. That means the color of your composite resin is carefully selected to match your natural tooth color (versus the cheaper, less aesthetic generic options).
