Before and After
What is Full-Mouth Restoration?
When teeth become severely worn down over time (often through grinding/clenching) the jaw may become misaligned. In many cases the jaw over closes due to the shorter teeth. That means the muscles controlling the jaw are nearly constantly engaged. This is NOT a natural condition and can cause jaw pain, neck pain, headaches, and many other symptoms. It can also cause a sunken facial appearance that will make you look much older.
Full Mouth Reconstruction identifies a comfortable and relaxed jaw alignment and then uses all-porcelain crowns, porcelain veneers, porcelain bridges, and dental implants to rebuild the teeth to the correct size, shape, and position. This not only alleviates many painful symptoms and strengthens weakened teeth, but it also creates a healthy, beautiful new smile!
Full Mouth Restoration Corrects:
- Jaw that Is Out Of Alignment
- Chronic Headaches
- Neck And Jaw Pain (TMJ pain)
- Worn And Damaged Teeth
- Missing Teeth
- Sunken Faced Appearance
- Wrinkled corners of the mouth, lips, and chin
- Thin-lipped smile
- Gummy Smile

Why Choose dr. bret davis?
Bret Davis, DMD, FAGD, has focused his dental career on achieving excellence in cosmetic and reconstructive dentistry. These are highly technical areas of dentistry that require extensive post-graduate training and years of hands-on experience to master. Dr. Davis has studied extensively at the World renown Las Vegas Institute for Aesthetic Dentistry. In order to offer Full-Mouth Restoration that would address proper bite alignment, he spent years mastering the science behind neuromuscular dentistry.
There was a time when finding the proper bite alignment was largely a matter of trial and error with each patient. However, the latest technology has offered a far superior approach. Dr. Davis uses the Myotronics K-7 system that largely takes the guesswork out of identifying a patient’s ideal bite alignment. Mastering this system took years of training and practice. But, it now pays huge dividends to Dr. Davis’s patients.
LVI Trained Dentist
Dr. Davis has also studied extensively at the Las Vegas Institute for Aesthetic Dentistry in the art and science of restoring many teeth in a single procedure. He is now a Fellow of the Las Vegas Institute for Aesthetic Dentistry and was one of the youngest dentists to achieve this accreditation. This honor places him in the top 1% of dentists in the United States. Dr. Davis’s study has given him unique expertise in creating natural and beautiful looking smiles that also feel and function like natural teeth.
Who is a candidate for full dental reconstruction?
Full-mouth restorations can cover the gamut of dental procedures, everything from changing the alignment of your bite to addressing gum disease. There isn’t a single sign that you need full-mouth restoration with Dr. Davis. If these symptoms sound like the condition of your oral health, full-mouth restoration could be the answer:
- Several teeth with decay
- Loose or missing teeth
- Short, worn down teeth
- Broken teeth
- Chipped teeth
- Gum disease
- Jawbone density problems
- Symptoms of TMJ: jaw, neck, facial pain, headaches, jaw popping
- Previous dental work that is failing
Finding the right Jaw Alignment and Teeth Reconstruction
During the first phase of treatment, Dr. Bret Davis will utilize a state-of-the-art device, known as the Myotronics K-7, to locate your optimal jaw alignment. He then uses temporary restorations to test this alignment. This allows you to know if your symptoms (headaches, clicking jaws, jaw pain, etc.) are alleviated. This process can involve several adjustments over a period of weeks to get your perfect alignment identified. Now that Dr. Davis knows the precise position of your optimal bite alignment, he is ready to rebuild the teeth. This generally involves using porcelain crowns, veneers, bridges, and sometimes dental implants. In most cases, every tooth is restored. This phase of the treatment typically involves just two visits and is fully completed in two weeks.
Is Full-Mouth Restoration Painful?
At SmileTexas®, our goal is the comfort of our patients. Modern anesthesia and techniques eliminate pain during the procedures. Most people report minimal if any discomfort during recovery. But if they do, we have a range of options to help. If you’re apprehensive about any of the procedures, we offer sedation dentistry to help you overcome those fears.
What Are the benefits of Full-Mouth Reconstruction?
You can place the benefits of full-mouth restoration at SmileTexas® into two categories — function and aesthetics. Most people don’t realize just how many problems trace their root cause back to the bite. When your bite is misaligned, the muscles can be engaged at all times, even when you’re not chewing or opening your mouth. This can create neck and jaw pain, even chronic headaches. Dr. Davis identifies the correct alignment of your jaw and then moves on to the restorations necessary to achieve that alignment. Your bite will be aligned, your teeth fully functional, and you’ll be able to enjoy a normal diet once again. Plus you will then be free of the pain associated with TMJ.
Aesthetically, what’s the value of a beautiful, balanced smile? A degraded smile is something a person subconsciously hides. But with your restored smile, you’ll be happy to smile once again.
Recovery After Dental Reconstruction
Once Dr. Davis establishes your correct alignment and moves to permanent restorations, it’s likely that every tooth in your mouth will be restored. Unbelievably, the process usually only requires two visits and takes two weeks. Recovery is not dramatic. You may have residual soreness, but it is usually manageable with ibuprofen.
