Los Angeles, CA, April 9, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Severe dental decay, periodontitis or trauma can lead to the need for full mouth reconstruction. Restoring gum health and lost or damaged teeth can also restore a person's ability to eat comfortably, speak with confidence and feel better about his or her smile. Seriously damaged teeth or infected gums can also significantly increase the risk of developing other health problems, which makes restoration a matter of necessity as well as comfort. Los Angeles dentist, Dr. Bijan Afar, is offering full mouth reconstruction in order to preserve dental health and improve the overall function of his patients' smiles.
Many factors may be considered for full mouth reconstructions. Dr. Afar, Los Angeles smile makeover expert, will carefully assess dental health during a comprehensive evaluation. The type and amount of damage play a major role in the types of treatments or procedures that are used in a full mouth reconstruction. Dental implants are often recommended when teeth have been lost. Titanium implants are used to replace the roots of lost teeth. Once they integrate with the jawbone, a restoration will be attached. Crowns, bridges and dentures can all be used with dental implants.
Teeth whitening may also be used. If natural teeth are excessively stained or discolored, a whitening procedure can turn back the clock on a smile and reveal whiter, brighter teeth. Zoom whitening is one of the most effective whitening options and can lighten teeth up to eight shades in a single appointment. If whitening is not an option, porcelain veneers may be recommended. Dental veneers are bonded to the fronts of teeth to create an even, white, flawless-looking smile. Los Angeles dental veneers specialist, Dr. Afar, will work closely with patients to determine the best treatment plan for their unique situations and smiles.
