Full mouth reconstruction does not refer to a single procedure, but rather a comprehensive treatment plan that is custom designed to restore the structural integrity and aesthetics of your smile. Dr. Joseph P. Murray offers a wide range of restorative and cosmetic treatments to help you achieve your goals without the need to see different specialists.

Planning Your Full Mouth Reconstruction
During your full mouth reconstruction consultation, Dr. Murray will take the time to discuss your treatment goals in detail. He will also learn more about your medical history and your lifestyle to begin developing a customized plan that fits your needs and budget. By addressing all of your dental concerns with one comprehensive plan, full mouth reconstruction can reduce the total cost of your treatment as well as the time required to achieve a restored smile.
Full Mouth Reconstruction Goals
When designing your full mouth reconstruction plan, we can focus on accomplishing different goals:
Addressing Jawbone Recession
We will make every effort to maintain or improve the health of your jawbone. If you have suffered tooth loss, we can use dental implants to help prevent jawbone atrophy and restore your ability to speak and eat comfortably. Implants are small metal posts that are surgically placed in the jaw to provide the greatest level of support for crowns, bridges, and dentures.
For patients who do not have sufficient jawbone structure to support traditional dental implants, the All-on-4® technique may offer an effective alternative. This technique utilizes smaller implant posts in order to minimize the impact to surrounding tissues. Dr. Murray will carefully assess the health of your jawbone to determine if dental implants are right for you.
Restoring Your Teeth
Our practice offers custom dental crowns that can typically be created and placed during one visit to our office. We can use CEREC® technology to create your dental crowns from high-quality porcelain, which is extremely durable and natural-looking.
If you are missing an entire arch of teeth, Dr. Murray offers both traditional and implant-supported dentures. Traditional dentures rest atop your gums, while implant-supported dentures attach to permanent implant posts. We are also proud to offer the Prettau® Implant Bridge, which is an innovative implant-supported full denture. This restoration is made from zirconia, which offers a beautiful appearance and exceptional durability.
Beautifying Your Smile
Dr. Murray offers many different cosmetic treatments that can be incorporated into your full mouth reconstruction to enhance the beauty of your smile. If your teeth are stained or discolored, Dr. Murray can provide both at-home and in-office teeth whitening. To conceal a range of imperfections, Dr. Murray may recommend porcelain veneers, which are thin shells that are bonded to the front surface of teeth. In addition to traditional veneers, we also offer LUMINEERS® that are made of a thinner porcelain shell, allowing them to be placed with minimal preparation. If you have teeth that are chipped or cracked, dental bonding can be used to repair minor damage. During a dental bonding procedure, we will apply a tooth-colored resin to the surface of your teeth.
