How Long is the Process for Full Mouth Reconstruction?

By: Dr. Joanna Claustro


A beautiful smile can do wonders for your confidence – but what happens when crooked or cracked teeth, gaps, and misalignment make it hard to show off your smile? Full mouth reconstruction (also called full mouth restoration) may be the answer.

Full mouth reconstruction is a combination of treatments designed to create a healthy, functional, and attractive smile. This process at Joanna Claustro DMD & Associates can take several weeks to a few months, depending on the procedures involved.

What causes problems with our oral health?

Natural wear-and-tear, decay from gum disease, or dental trauma all cause problems with our teeth and gums. You may find it hard to eat your favorite foods or speak clearly. Others become frustrated with their appearance and hide their smiles. Here are some common issues our patients face:

  • Discoloration and stains
  • Crooked teeth
  • Misaligned teeth
  • Missing teeth or gaps
  • Cracked or chipped teeth
  • Excessive wear on the enamel

What treatments are included in a full mouth reconstruction?

Joanna Claustro DMD & Associates provides personalized treatment plans to restore your smile through full mouth restoration. For example, dental restorations like crowns and bridges repair damage, while orthodontic devices straighten crooked teeth. Invisalign® aligners and clear braces gently move your teeth into the proper positions.

Dentures and implants replace gaps created by missing teeth, providing a strong, secure foundation for your smile. Professional whitening treatments are also available for discoloration-related cosmetic concerns. Dr. Claustro can review available options and help decide which ones are best for your needs.

Our clinic takes a conservative approach to full mouth reconstruction in Ashburn, VA. This means we’ll only recommend treatments that are necessary to restore your oral health and create the appearance you desire.

How long does full mouth restoration take?

Dr. Claustro breaks down your timeline into stages depending on the procedures chosen. The average duration ranges from two weeks up to four months, with more complex cases extending even further. Some treatments may be done in one visit, while others require multiple sessions. We also schedule follow-up appointments to monitor your progress and ensure everything is proceeding as planned.

Many of our patients at Joanna Claustro DMD & Associates want to complete full mouth reconstruction before a special event or occasion. We’ll do our best to accommodate your timeline, but please be aware that some treatments may take more time than expected. It's best to plan ahead and schedule your consultation well in advance.

Why choose full mouth reconstruction?

Full mouth reconstruction can transform your life. Once treatment is complete, you can eat all kinds of food comfortably, speak with ease, and smile with confidence. You should also see an improvement in oral health as you protect your teeth from further damage or decay. Even the smallest details can make a big difference when it comes to your results.
