Dr. Lee's philosophy when it comes to a full mouth reconstruction is to make every smile not only beautiful, but also natural looking. She works to improve on what is already present and to build up what is missing. This often leads to longer lasting results. Prosthetic teeth, despite their benefits, will never be as strong or durable as healthy natural teeth. Natural teeth that can be saved will be treated and maintained.

The Procedure:Because every patient's dental health and requirement is different, the first step is always a full evaluation of the remaining teeth and the jawbone. To do this, patients must start with a full mouth x-ray or may need to have a dental CT scan done. A complete treatment plan will then be tailor made specific to each patient's condition. Depending on how much needs to get done, it may take a few years to complete.
Before You Come In:Please see our individual sections on what you should do before each procedure.
What You Can Expect Afterwards:As with anything else, it is important now that you've restored your smile to maintain it. Keep brushing regularly, avoid cracking your teeth on hard objects and continue your annual checkups.
