Full Mouth Reconstruction in Beverly Hills
Chronic gum disease, poor oral hygiene and tooth decay can wreak havoc on your mouth. These issues cause gum lines to recede and damage the tooth, its root and even the jawbone underneath. Full mouth reconstruction is a customized series of dental procedures designed to restore a healthy mouth when multiple issues are present. The process focuses on rebuilding or replacing all teeth for comprehensive results that restore the look, function and health of the mouth.

Our office strives to offer a luxurious experience with a soothing atmosphere and excellent pain management.
Are You a Candidate for Full Mouth Reconstruction?
People with extensive tooth damage or multiple missing teeth are often good candidates for full mouth reconstruction. Instead of addressing specific teeth, these procedures improve each individual tooth, including these dental problems and more:
- Severe tooth decay requiring root canal or extraction
- Several missing teeth
- Old, large fillings that need replacing or are defective
- Cracked or broken teeth
- Badly worn teeth, often caused by teeth grinding
Some medical conditions — such as amelogenesis, dentinogenesis imperfecta and ectodermal dysplasia — require a full mouth reconstruction for tooth and mouth problems caused by the specific disease.
What Are the Benefits of Full Mouth Reconstruction?
Full mouth reconstruction restores the upper and lower arches of teeth with a focus on function and aesthetics. These procedures can replace missing teeth so you can eat and speak clearly and prevent jawbone resorption. Periodontal treatment can reverse periodontal (gum) disease and various dental restorations improve the bite. Full mouth reconstruction offers a stronger dental structure for better oral health and may even lessen other issues caused by mouth problems, such as headaches and migraines.
What Does Full Mouth Restoration Entail?
Dr. Goldy offers a full range of restorative dentistry procedures for full mouth reconstruction. The procedure is a multi-step process unique to your needs and dental issues. Full mouth reconstruction starts with an evaluation and review of your dental records and health history. Our dentist will order X-rays, take impressions and discuss the benefits and drawbacks of all the treatments and procedures involved in your full mouth reconstruction.
Full mouth reconstruction may involve:
- Inlays and onlays
- Dental crowns
- Dental implants
- Porcelain veneers
- Gum disease treatment
- Tooth extractions
- Root canal treatment
These procedures give you a healthy, functioning and sparkling smile.
What Kind of Results Can I Expect?
Full mouth reconstruction may take weeks, months or years, depending on the extent of tooth damage and the type of dental restorations required. Dental implants to replace lost teeth take around six to eight months, but dental crowns and porcelain veneers require a few weeks. Orthodontic work and periodontal treatment lengthen the process.
How long full mouth reconstruction results last depends on the procedures and how well you care for your new smile. Many of Dr. Goldy’s patients have enjoyed their results for decades. View the results of previous patients in our before and after gallery.
