Full Mouth Reconstruction—Cary, NC
Reset Your Smile
Sometimes when a patient comes to see us, instead of having just one problem, they are dealing with several concurrent ones. This is extremely common, as dental issues tend to become worse and lead to others as time goes on. Fortunately for our patients, they don’t have to go through the process of having everything fixed one at a time. With a full mouth reconstruction in Cary, Dr. Bikram Singh can completely renew someone’s smile to give them a fresh start using a single cohesive treatment plan.

Is a Full Mouth Reconstruction Right for Me?
A full mouth reconstruction isn’t just one procedure, but a collection of procedures that is designed to help patients dealing with several broken, decayed, or missing teeth alongside gum disease or general bite problems. It combines aspects of both restorative and cosmetic dentistry to repair damage, restore oral health, and give someone an attractive result. The individual procedures that make up a full mouth reconstruction are different for each case and solely depend on the patient’s needs and goals.
The Full Mouth Reconstruction Process
While every full mouth reconstruction is unique, they all have the same first step—a consultation. During this, Dr. Singh will ask about your symptoms and dental history as well as examine your mouth. Based on his findings and your input, he’ll go over his observations and make suggestions as to what should be included in your full mouth reconstruction.
To help you better visualize the final result, Dr. Singh will use tools like digital smile design and wax mockups to give you a preview of what your teeth will look like at the end of the process.
Once you both agree on a plan, you’ll then visit our office multiple times over the course of a few weeks or months to complete various procedures.
Understanding the Cost of a Full Mouth Reconstruction
As mentioned above, no two full mouth reconstructions are alike, so the cost is different from person to person as well. It largely comes down to the number and type of procedures that are needed to achieve a patient’s goal.
When you come in for your consultation, our team will discuss the financial aspects of your treatment so you know exactly what to expect. We offer our patients multiple ways to pay so that their care is always affordable. We accept dental insurance, offer low-to-no-interest financing, and even have our own in-house savings plan. Before you leave that first visit, we’ll make sure you have a plan in place so that your treatment fits comfortably into your budget.
Full Mouth Reconstruction FAQs
Because a full mouth reconstruction requires a big time commitment and investment from the patient, we want you to have all the knowledge you need to start the treatment with peace of mind. We’re happy to answer any questions you might have, and below, we have already addressed some of the most popular ones. Be sure to give us a call if you would like to ask about anything we haven’t covered here!
How long will my full mouth reconstruction take?
The length of your full mouth reconstruction will depend on factors such as the starting condition of your teeth and bite, which procedures you need to achieve your goals, and how long your mouth takes to recover between procedures. Typically, the process can take anywhere from a few months to over a year for more complex cases. Thankfully, Dr. Singh will be able to give you a much more definitive timeline estimate when you come in for your consultation.
Is there a less involved treatment that I can get?
If Dr. Singh has recommended that you get a full mouth reconstruction, this likely means that there are no other options left. In most cases, if a patient who needs this type of procedure instead chooses to fix certain problems while leaving other ones alone, they will continue to have issues with their teeth’s ability to function. A full mouth reconstruction is designed to fix several interconnected problems at once in an efficient manner, so it is always wise to get one if a dentist thinks it is necessary. Otherwise, the same issues will continue to pop up (and get worse) over time.
Will I need to take time off of work?
It may be advised that you take a day or two off of work to recover after certain procedures, particularly ones that involve surgery (such as an extraction or dental implant placement). You’ll have plenty of notice when these types of procedures are coming up so you can plan accordingly.
Can I use my dental insurance to help pay for a full mouth reconstruction?
While most dental insurance plans don’t offer coverage specifically for a full mouth reconstruction, they can be used to help pay for the various procedures involved in one. Most will partially cover restorative treatments like crowns and fillings and fully cover things like exams and X-rays. Certain cosmetic procedures may not be covered. We’ll make sure you have a financial plan before you leave your consultation. We can use insurance, offer flexible financing, and even have an in-house savings plan for patients without insurance.
