Full Dental Rehabilitation in Melbourne
Restore your smile to full health and beauty
If you have various worn, broken or missing teeth, full-mouth rehabilitation might be needed to return your smile to total health and beauty. With full-mouth rehabilitation, which is also known as an extreme smile makeover, all of your teeth are either restored to health or replaced.
A full-mouth rehabilitation not only creates an aesthetic, healthy smile by restoring the size and shape of your teeth back to their original form, it also enhances your bite by restoring its ideal function and occlusion. Plus it improves overall facial appearance and self-confidence, as well.

Your new smile starts with a comprehensive exam
No matter how many smiles he has helped perfect, Dr. Sheldon is well aware that each case needs to be customized to the patient. After all, everyone is different and therefore has unique needs. During your exam he will find out exactly what you’d like to change about your smile. That’s because he wants to make sure he knows what’s important to you before recommending any procedures.
Your treatment plan
Dr. Sheldon will create a treatment plan, using high-quality materials and advanced procedures that will precisely fit your needs. Depending on the procedures that will be involved, he may create a model of what he expects your smile to look like after full-mouth rehabilitation. You’ll review this model with him and decide what you would like to have your smile look like. The choice is always yours.
For some full-mouth rehabilitation cases, Dr. Sheldon will use Smile Vision, which provides a digital image of what an ideal smile would look like on your face.
