It’s no secret that having a beautiful, healthy smile helps to boost self-esteem.
It also and makes a significant difference when it comes to overall confidence and a feeling of wellbeing.
At Pittsford Dental Excellence, we offer a range of cosmetic and restorative dental services — if you feel you need a transformation when it comes to your smile, you might consider a full mouth rejuvenation. Here’s what it involves…
What is a full mouth rejuvenation, exactly?
A full mouth rejuvenation is a customized, completely individualized treatment plan that includes various restorative dental procedures. Each treatment plan is tailored to suit the patient, depending on their specific needs and expectations. The idea is to optimize the health of the entire mouth, including the teeth, gums, and bite and to improve the overall aesthetic of the smile.
What’s on offer?
At Pittsford Dental Excellence, we offer a range of cosmetic dental treatments as part of a full mouth rejuvenation, including (but not limited to):
- Dental bonding
Ideal for repairing chipped and discolored teeth, as well as teeth damaged by decay, dental bonding makes use of composite resin to improve the appearance of the smile. The tooth is made slightly rough, before a special conditioning liquid is applied to the surface. A composite resin material is then bonded to the tooth with the use of a special ultraviolet light. Once the material has been bonded to the surface of the tooth, it is molded, shaped, and smoothed to give the tooth a natural appearance.

Veneers are very thin shells that are placed on the front surface of the teeth to enhance their appearance and conceal various imperfections. They effectively repair a number of cosmetic concerns, including discoloration, stains, chips, cracks, and asymmetry. They can also be used to close unwanted gaps between the teeth and improve the look of unevenly shaped teeth.
- Gum recontouring
Perfect for patients with a “gummy” smile, gum recontouring is a treatment in which a dental laser is used to improve the appearance of gums that are too high or too low. If your gums cover a large part of your teeth, you may feel self-conscious about your smile. Similarly, if you have receding gums, you may feel dissatisfied with the fact that too much of your teeth area is revealed when you smile.The treatment is minimally invasive, and much quicker than traditional surgery. Bleeding is minimal because the laser actually works to cauterize the wound immediately after making the incision.

- Dental implants
Dental implants are often the best restorative option for patients who have missing teeth or teeth that are severely damaged beyond repair. A dental implant is made up of a titanium screw that is surgically inserted into the jawbone to replace the roots of a missing tooth; an abutment, which connects the implant screw to a crown; and the crown itself, which is made of good quality porcelain and customized to match your natural teeth in shape and color. Implants can be used to replace a single tooth or multiple tooth and can be used together with dental bridges and dentures if necessary.
