Will insurance cover your full mouth reconstruction?

Your full mouth reconstruction starts with a detail-attentive consultation, during which we'll examine your dental and medical status, personal needs, and lifestyle factors. We can also discuss payment plans and help you find out if insurance will cover some of the costs. Generally, insurance may cover some or all of the cost of a restorative treatment, though it will not cover cosmetic treatments. Therefore, you'll also have to reach out to your provider to discover exactly what your coverage plan includes.

We'll then utilize various state-of-the-art techniques, like digital imaging, to create a map of your mouth and devise an ideal treatment plan just for you. And if you're missing a tooth or multiple teeth, there's no reason to settle for a less-than-stellar smile. We're proud to offer a variety of restorative services to give you back your lovely smile.

If the damage is light and limited, we may suggest a crown. By crowning the worn-down tooth with a robust, resistant material, we can help you avoid further decay and remove discomfort, especially while eating. Other types of chips, cracks, trauma, or cavities can be treated via onlays or inlays. Made of porcelain, resins, or other materials, they provide a covering or a filling that slips over or inside the tooth to restore its structural integrity.

If the entire tooth needs replacing, we can employ a dental implant. This relatively simple, well-practiced procedure fills in dental gaps that could lead to numerous gradually worsening health issues. One risk is an increased susceptibility to infection since the empty socket offers a habitat for bacteria, as well as a collecting area for food particles.

But by implanting a small screw or rod, we can plug the gap and close off this extra avenue for bacterial invaders. This implant is then topped with a pontic, or synthetic tooth, that we painstakingly craft for a natural look. The result is a seamless blend and a restored reason to grin wide and often.

If implants aren't right for you, possibly due to insufficient mass in the jawbone, alternative options include a bridge. True to its name, a bridge is attached to the teeth adjacent to the dental gap. And by filling it, you can avoid another complication: nearby teeth "migrating" toward the empty space.

Should a patient require a more comprehensive intervention in Houston, TX, our expert team can provide a truly transformative treatment: porcelain veneers. Veneers are shells, like the façades of buildings, that are fastened to the front of your natural teeth to conceal a wide range of aesthetic issues, like discoloration or decay. The perfect fix, porcelain veneers look natural, brilliantly catch light, and are largely stain-resistant.
