Full Mouth Reconstruction

Beautiful natural smiles

Restore the health and functionality of your smile

For patients who are in need of extensive restorative treatment, full mouth reconstruction treatment is ideal. This treatment ensures you receive all the necessary dental treatment for a healthy and beautiful smile.

What is Full Mouth Reconstruction?

Full mouth reconstruction (sometimes called restoration) is occasionally referred to as “FMR.” It involves a complete functional overhaul of your smile, specifically for the purposes of addressing disease, function, wear, and traumatic injuries. Whether you’ve suffered from missing teeth because of periodontal disease or experienced a life-changing event that caused significant dental damage, full mouth reconstruction will get your smile back on track to better health.

Types of Treatment Used During Full Mouth Reconstruction

As you might guess, full mouth reconstruction typically combines multiple different treatments to achieve one overall result. From replacing missing teeth to repairing broken ones, your smile rejuvenation experience may involve one or more procedures such as:

Dental Crowns

Crowns (sometimes called “caps”) are protective covers that go over worn, broken, or decayed teeth to recreate the portion of the tooth above the gumlines. Crowns also reinforce the remaining tooth structure to prevent total tooth loss. We can also place crowns on top of dental implants to fill in missing teeth. If your crown is visible when you smile, we suggest choosing a tooth-colored material, such as ceramic or porcelain, as it can be matched to your adjacent teeth.

Dental Implants

Today’s dental implants make it possible to permanently replace all of your missing teeth with a tooth-like restoration that feels almost as great as the real thing. Implants have an extremely high success rate and slow the natural bone resorption process seen with missing teeth. Once integrated, implants are stronger than natural teeth. They’re non-invasive and non-removable, giving you something to truly smile about no matter how many teeth you’re replacing.

Dental Bridges

Do you have a missing tooth? Do the teeth on either side of it also need dental crowns? A bridge can serve a dual purpose, reinforcing the supporting teeth as it replaces the missing tooth between them. These multi-tooth restorations are matched to your smile for both function and aesthetics. They can also be installed on top of dental implants to fill in up to 3-4 teeth at a time. And unlike partials, they are non-removable. Most bridges last for several years.

Dental Fillings

Minimally invasive white fillings repair areas of tooth decay without detracting from your tooth’s health or function. These materials naturally bond to tooth enamel, making them less invasive than traditional silver fillings. And because composite comes in a variety of different colors, our La Jolla dentist can select one that best matches your unique smile.

Root Canal Therapy

Endodontic treatment addresses teeth with abscesses, dying nerves, or deep areas of tooth decay where an extraction would be the only other option. Today’s endodontic treatments can gently be completed with the help of local anesthetic and more advanced techniques, keeping you comfortable from start to finish. After a root canal, we recommend placing a crown over the tooth to reinforce the remaining tooth structure.


Custom dentures are a fast and affordable way to replace all of your missing teeth at one time. Partial dentures clip in around your healthy teeth, while full dentures cover your entire upper or lower jaw. If you’re looking for added support, you can consider an overdenture option that snaps onto dental implants. Harmony Dental Group offers various types of dentures to fit the lifestyle and budget of our patients, providing you with several choices to pick from.

Dental Extractions

In most cases, our goal is to preserve your natural teeth as long as possible. When a tooth is severely damaged and no longer restorable, it’s usually best to remove it altogether. Such as those with aggressive periodontal disease or deep areas of tooth decay. Therapeutic dental extractions help prevent the spread of disease and address the source of discomfort. At that point, our La Jolla dentist will help you replace the tooth to prevent any changes in how your smile is aligned.

Bone or Gum Grafting

Missing bone or gum tissues can compromise your smile and its appearance. If you’re planning to get dental implants or are recovering from gum disease, bone grafting may be needed to reinforce your jaw in those spaces. At the same time, gum grafting may be recommended if you have exposed tooth roots. Grafting is frequently combined with periodontal therapy, extractions, and dental implant treatment.

Orthodontic Treatment

Crooked or misaligned teeth can contribute to issues like TMJ disorder, worn teeth, and broken dental work. They can also be more prone to develop tooth decay and periodontal disease. By aligning your teeth with braces or clear aligners, you can lower your risk or additional issues as you improve your oral function (and protect updated dental restorations.) As we assess your bite, we can estimate the length of treatment needed, so that you know approximately how long your orthodontic process will take.

Affording Your FMR Treatment

As part of your treatment planning process, we’ll review all viable options with you and explain the advantages of each one in your current situation. Then we’ll connect with your dental insurance carrier, if applicable, to help maximize the coverage under your policy. From there, your care plan will list the itemized fees, estimated patient portion, and optional financing plans.

My wife referred me to Dr. Farid. An old crown popped off over the weekend while I was flossing. I called the office Monday at 9am. Instantly made an appointment for that afternoon. Dr. Farid and her staff were friendly and accommodating. She did a quick x-ray and exam to make sure nothing else had broken.The crown was glued back in place during a relatively painfree procedure that only lasted about 10 minutes. Parking validated! Love Harmony Dental.
