What is a Full Mouth Restoration?
Full mouth reconstruction blends the art and science of restorative and cosmetic procedures to improve dental function and aesthetics. Full mouth restoration typically involves multiple procedures completed over the course of several weeks or months.
On the other hand, tooth restoration in San Diego is designed to restore damaged teeth to their proper strength and health or replace missing or severely damaged teeth that can’t be saved, while secondarily making cosmetic improvements.
Issues Treated with Full Mouth Reconstruction
- Extensive gum disease and/or dental decay
- Multiple failing or missing teeth
- Severely worn or broken teeth due to teeth grinding and clenching
- Jaw pain caused by a misaligned bite
- Dental trauma including fractured or knocked-out teeth
Full Mouth Restoration Procedures
Gum Disease Treatment
When plaque is left to accumulate on teeth, it hardens into tartar and releases bacterial toxins that irritate gum tissue, causing formation of periodontal pockets and bleeding. Something as seemingly harmless as bleeding gums can be a sign of a dangerous gum infection. When left untreated, bacteria can enter your bloodstream and cause systemic health problems. If you have active periodontal disease, Dr. Sabourin schedules gum disease treatment prior to other restorative procedures to ensure the most successful full mouth reconstruction.
Dental Crowns and Bridges
A dental crown is permanently placed over damaged, decayed, and worn-down teeth or those with failing fillings. Crowns are also used to protect the weakened tooth structure after a root canal. Bridges require dental crowns on supporting teeth on each side of the false tooth in the empty socket. For both crowns and bridges, teeth need to be reduced in size in order for the restorations to fit properly. Impressions are taken to fabricate a temporary composite crown in-house placed during your first visit and these are then sent out to the dental lab that creates your permanent crown or bridge.
If you have teeth that are too severely decayed, damaged, or diseased to restore with crowns, dental implants are the best long-term option. Dental implants offer unparalleled durability and longevity because they assume the role of the missing tooth root and fuse with your underlying jawbone. Dental implants prevent bone loss and undesirable changes to your facial aesthetics, while restoring 99% of oral function. They’re designed to look, feel, and function like your natural teeth so you can feel confident smiling, eating, and speaking.
Although porcelain veneers are typically considered a cosmetic dentistry procedure, they’re an ideal solution for concealing teeth in your smile zone with small cracks, chips, deep stains, or minor misalignment. Each veneer is designed and fabricated from the best quality materials to duplicate the beauty and appearance of natural tooth enamel.

What is the Tooth Restoration Process Like?
At your first consultation, Dr. Sabourin will discuss your current oral health issues and smile goals, perform an oral exam, and take digital X-rays to make an accurate diagnosis. The next steps are helping you make an informed decision about the most optimal procedures to restore your smile, explaining what each procedure entails including costs, and scheduling additional appointments.
How Much Does Full Mouth Restoration Cost?
The cost of full mouth reconstruction can vary greatly depending on the extent of work that needs to be done. For instance, a single missing tooth costs far less to restore than multiple upper and lower missing teeth. Dr. Sabourin believes in transparent communication, so he’ll discuss costs at your first consultation.
