In simple terms, a smile makeover is something that you can choose, while a full mouth reconstruction is something that you need. These days there is a big demand for more beautiful, natural-looking dentistry. So, it becomes a little more difficult to actually draw the line between “cosmetic” (such as elective) dentistry and “restorative” (necessary) dentistry. For example, it is now possible for us to treat tooth decay with a tooth-like filling material that looks natural.
If you need full mouth reconstruction, the materials available today make it possible for us to provide you with durable, functional, and clinically sound treatments that also look natural. It is also important to note that a smile makeover – though performed primarily to improve the appearance of the smile – requires the use of clinically proven dental materials and treatment techniques, as well as exceptional knowledge, training, and skill on the part of the dentist. Many of the same techniques and equipment used for full mouth reconstruction are also used to ensure the success and long-term stability of smile makeover treatments.
