How Much Does It Cost?
The price of full mouth reconstruction varies based on the procedures used. During your consultation at our Cary, NC, practice, we can provide a full cost breakdown. To keep treatments affordable, we offer several financing options and can review eligibility for coverage through dental insurance and/or medical insurance.
Full Mouth Reconstruction Procedures
One of the most common restorations patients receive, a dental filling is designed to replace enamel structure that's been compromised by a cavity. We use tooth-colored fillings whenever possible because they look more natural and are more compatible with your dental tissue than silver amalgam.
Inlays and Onlays
Inlays and onlays are types of restorations used when fillings are no longer viable on molars and premolars that have been substantially damaged or decayed. Inlays restore the grooved chewing surface of the teeth, while onlays can replace both the points and grooves.
A dental crown protects a severely decayed or damaged tooth. Crowns may be made of porcelain fused to metal or gold, and there are metal-free crown options. Metal-free restorations are made from IPS e.max (lithium disilicate) and zirconia.
A dental bridge fills the gap left by a missing tooth. The bridge consists of a false tooth bookended by crowns. The crowns cap the teeth adjacent to the gap, holding the bridge in place. Thanks to a bridge, you can bite, chew, and smile with confidence.
Missing most or all of your teeth? Dentures are an excellent option. Full and partial dentures brace onto the gumline, restoring oral function. Using modern materials, dentures are custom-crafted to look just like a natural set of teeth.
If you want a stable solution for missing teeth, implants may be right for you. Dental implants are artificial tooth roots that fuse to the jawbone. Dental implants can make a crown, bridge, or set of dentures as stable as natural teeth.
Stress, poor dental alignment, and other factors can cause you to grind your teeth at night. This can leave your teeth severely worn down. Treating bruxism often involves restoring the damaged teeth while also diagnosing and treating the underlying cause or causes of the condition.
The temporomandibular joint (TMJ) is one of the most complicated joints in the body. It is the point where the jawbone meets the cranium. When this joint doesn't function properly, it can cause popping, locking, and pain in the jaw. There are many ways we can treat a TMJ disorder (TMD) depending on your needs.

Planning Your Full Mouth Reconstruction
Using the latest x-rays and digital imaging technology, we can assess the health of every tooth. The Straumann® CARES® 7 intraoral scanner allows us to create 3-D color scans of the mouth. The data collected by this tool can help our partner dental lab develop high-quality, natural-looking restorations.
After performing a full exam and assessing your dental health, we will create a custom treatment plan just for you. We will go over each procedure in great detail, giving you a timeline for treatment and answering your questions about the process. Our goal is to fully restore and rehabilitate your mouth.

While discussing your reconstruction plan, our entire team will help you understand the risks, benefits, and basics of various procedures.
