Restorative Dentistry An Overview

Missing teeth, crooked teeth, and teeth that are worn or broken create more than cosmetic concerns. These types of dental problems can lead to serious health concerns. Most cosmetic or functional dental concerns are the result of underlying problems such as bite alignment, TMJ related issues, or periodontal disease.

Some dental concerns are a result of patients avoiding the dentist for a number of years. If an issue, such as tooth decay, goes undiagnosed and untreated, it will progress into a larger issue.

If you have avoided the dentist for years for any reason, Dr. Sinclair and Dr. Reichley can help get your oral health back on track with restorative dentistry.

Restorative Dentistry FAQs

How long will a full mouth reconstruction take? 

The timeline for a full mouth reconstruction varies from patient to patient, depending on their needs and goals. For someone with minor changes and functional concerns, the smile makeover process can be as quick as a few weeks.

Some treatments such as composite bonding or resin dental veneers can be completed in a couple of visits. If you have more complex dental problems such as worn, broken, or missing teeth, the process may be more intensive. It may require multiple treatments over the course of several weeks or months. We work with patients to achieve their goals within a timeframe that suits their oral health needs, schedule, and budget.

What does a Full Mouth Reconstruction cost? 

Just as the timeline depends on the specific patient, so does the cost of a full mouth reconstruction. No one should avoid treatment because they think it is too expensive.

Dr. Reichley and Dr. Sinclair spend one-on-one time with each patient to explain the various treatment options and associated costs to help patients make the best decision for their long-term health and happiness.

In addition, we offer flexible payment options including interest free financing to help make treatment more affordable.
