What is a full mouth reconstruction?
When you have many broken, worn and/or multiple missing teeth, then a full mouth reconstruction may be required. This will often require every tooth to be restored with a combination of veneers, crowns, inlays, onlays, dental implants and dental bridgework.
At the London Smile Clinic we have the experience and expertise to bring together the various advanced dental disciplines required to create full mouth reconstructions that not only look great but they function correctly, are healthy and will last for many years to come.
What does full mouth reconstruction involve?
The key to a successful full mouth reconstruction is thorough planning. At the London Smile Clinic we have extensive post-graduate training from the UK and USA specifically in the provision of full mouth reconstructions. Here is how it’s done:
A thorough examination of the teeth, gums, supporting bone, muscles and jaw joint/ TMJ is essential. The latest technology helps us identify and explain what dentistry is required in your full mouth reconstruction and why. Digital photography, Joint Vibration Analysis (JVA) and TekScan bite analysis are often crucial to plan and communicate your treatment needs.
2Computer Aided Smile Design
It’s vital that your full mouth reconstruction not only functions perfectly but looks great. Our extensive experience in cosmetic dentistry allows us to perfectly combine form and function. The latest in Computer Aided Smile Design technology allows us to discuss and show you the aesthetic outcome before we touch a tooth!
Detailed impressions and bite records allow us to transform the imaging picture into a 3D model. Not just on the computer but a model you can pick up and examine. You can check the aesthetics from every angle, and we can check the function. This is an essential step in the planning of predictable full mouth reconstructions.
After teeth are prepared for your full mouth reconstruction temporaries are placed that replicate the 3D model exactly. You can trial the proposed full mouth reconstruction in your own mouth, before anything is finalised. These temporaries can be fine tuned to your precise aesthetic and functional requirements and any changes can be duplicated in the finished restorations.
5Fitting your full mouth reconstruction
exactly as we’ve planned it with you! Our master ceramist duplicates the smile design and function (from the temporaries and 3D model) in the final restorations and adds the fine colour, surface anatomy and texture to bring your new full mouth reconstruction to life!

Full Smile Makeover: Braces and Veneers
This patient came to the clinic unhappy with the overall appearance of his smile. After a full mouth rehabilitation, he now has much more confidence and a smile to be proud of.
Gaynor wanted a fresher brighter smile so that she could smile with confidence. Years of tooth wear had caused her back teeth to become broken down and her front teeth to have reduced in length. 14 crowns on her upper teeth and a combination of 14 veneers and crowns on the lowers completely transformed her smile and restored her teeth to their original size. Gaynor feels the result is “amazing” and that has made her much more confident to smile
This young lady was very unhappy with her tiny, almost child-like teeth, and the gaps in between them. She had a full mouth rehabilitation; first we used fixed braces to correct the alignment and minimize the spacing, then Tim has placed porcelain veneers both on the upper and lower teeth for a beautiful, natural smile.
