Monmouth Junction, NJ Full Mouth Reconstruction
Whether you've experienced damage to your teeth, have old or poorly done dental work that needs replacing, or your mouth is showing the effects of dental disease, our team at Dentistry At South Brunswick can restore and rebuild your smile with our full mouth reconstruction services. Dr. Edwin Tanpiengco has been practicing dentistry for over 27 years and teaches a full mouth reconstruction program at New York University. Dr. Nina Sado has been practicing for 14 years and also works with Dr. Tanpiengco on the reconstruction program at NYU.
Our approach to full mouth reconstruction is to use the least minimally invasive procedures necessary and preserve as much of your natural teeth as possible. While one tooth may need to be fully replaced with an implant, another tooth with more minor damage may only need a crown or a composite filling to restore it. Every case is different and some patients require more or less work than others which is why we work one on one with each patient to develop a custom treatment plan that fits their needs. We want to make sure we address all your concerns and give you the smile you deserve while also restoring normal function to your mouth for proper chewing and speech.

What is Full Mouth Reconstruction?
When someone is dealing with a variety of dental issues or injuries, especially all at the same time, they typically require more than one dental procedure to improve the health and function of their smile overall. In this case, a full mouth reconstruction is often the best option, as it takes into account all problems you are facing and then allows our dental team to map out a treatment plan to address each issue.
Instead of undergoing just a single dental treatment, or multiple dental treatments spread out over a long period of time, patients may undergo two or more different cosmetic or restorative dental treatments nearly simultaneously to achieve the results they want. A full mouth reconstruction can improve the overall shape, size and color of your teeth, but is also used to correct damage, restore strength and resiliency back into teeth, and help you chew and speak comfortably and efficiently.
What Does The Process Entail?
This depends on you and the problems you are facing. When you come into our Monmouth Junction, NJ, practice, Dr. Tanpiengco and his team will take ample time to understand what brings you into the practice, what dental issues you’re dealing with and how we can help. From there, we will map out your treatment plan. There are a number of common cosmetic and restorative dental treatments that we most often use to improve a person’s smile.
Some of these treatments include:
- Composite or tooth-colored fillings
- Dental implants
- Bridges and crowns
- Dental bonding
- Tooth and/or gum reshaping
- Porcelain veneers
- Teeth whitening
- Orthodontic treatment
- Gum disease therapy
Are You A Candidate for Full Mouth Reconstruction?
Anyone who is dealing with an array of dental problems might be a good candidate for full mouth reconstruction. Problems could include damage sustained through an injury, disease, or existing dental work that needs replacing because it is old or wasn't properly done in the first place. Most patients who are ideal candidates present with multiple problems such as tooth decay, cracked or chipped teeth, worn or eroding teeth (sometimes caused by grinding), or tooth loss. If you think you might need more help fixing your teeth than can be done in one procedure, let us help you with full mouth reconstruction to give you a functional and beautiful smile again.
