If many of your teeth are missing, decayed, or otherwise damaged and chewing is painful or difficult, then full-mouth reconstruction is the answer. Full-mouth reconstruction uses a wide array of dental procedures to restore your entire mouth back to full health and beauty so that it is fully functioning again and you will be happy to show your smile.
The Full-Mouth Reconstruction is performed according to your oral condition. We also consider your expectation from the treatment before executing it. Rehabilitation involves more than just your teeth and immediate gum line. Our professional dentist conducts a thorough examination and assessment to ensure accurate full mouth reconstruction. We take full digital impressions of your entire mouth to see the extent of work that needs to be done and to ensure a precise treatment combination.

ArtSmiles Technology: The Very Best In Modern Dental Care
ArtSmiles has a state-of-the-art dental lab located in-office to provide our patients with the best dental experience and results.
So, what does having an in-house dental lab mean for you, our patient?
- Eliminates extra dental visits
- Allows for same-day porcelain crowns

New dental technologies and specialized instrumentation means patients spend much less time in a dental chair. One such innovation is called CEREC 3D. It allows the dentist to quickly restore your damaged teeth with natural-colored ceramic fillings and can be completed in a single visit, saving you time and the inconvenience of multiple visits with other procedures.
In our continued effort to provide the highest levels of comfort and convenience along with quality outcomes for our patients, we have introduced our newest digital impression scanner to our practice.
For those who find that “old school” process of messy impressions as uncomfortable or causing gagging, our digital scanning technology eliminates those problems. The scanner provides exceptional digital images in typically three to five minutes using a small pen like instrument. The images capture precise details of both your teeth and gums which then form the basis for the completion of several types of dental restorations including crowns, implants bridges and orthodontics.
In a nutshell, digital impressions offer you these advantages:
- eliminates the need for messy, multiple impressions and associated gagging
- allows the fitting of more accurate restorations
- reduces the possibility for impression errors
- patients can view images in real time
- restorations can be completed in our office
While our patients are understandably concerned about x-ray exposure, x-rays are a valuable and necessary resource to detect dental disease.
At ArtSmiles, your safety is one of priorities. X-rays performed in our office are safe with our advanced x-ray machines. Our team uses only the necessary exposure required for your digital x-ray. You can rest assure that you are receiving the best dental care in the safest way possible.

Frequently asked questions
A full-mouth reconstruction can provide many benefits and enhance and protect your dental health. This makeover not only creates a healthy, fully functioning smile, it enhances your overall facial appearance. A bright, straight and healthy smile is rejuvenating in itself. When your bite is aligned, and you have a full set of teeth that support your lower face, a full-mouth rehabilitation can also act as a facelift.
Reasons for full mouth rehabilitation vary:
- Tooth loss to decay or periodontal disease
- Fractured teeth due to accidental trauma, like a fall
- Jaw, muscle pain, tension headache due to malocclusion
- Teeth becoming severely worn as a result of long-term acid erosion, and systemic disease
If you have experienced any of these, please come in for an extensive complimentary initial evaluation. Dr. Cristian Dunker will help you decide if a full mouth restoration is the best course of action.
If you are interested in having a youthful, healthy looking smile that can take years off your appearance and repair extensive damage, a full mouth reconstruction may be the best option for you.
Ideal candidates for this procedure are patients with severely damaged teeth, several missing teeth, severe gum disease, teeth discoloration that do not respond to ordinary teeth treatment.
The best way to find out if full mouth reconstruction is right for you is to visit ArtSmiles. Dr. Dunker will answer all of your questions during the complimentary consultation.
First and most important is proper diagnosis & treatment plan. It begins with a conversation about your oral health goals and what you want to achieve with your smile. Next, Dr. Cristian Dunker will perform a thorough evaluation of your mouth and surrounding structures. He will prescribe necessary X-rays, images and relevant tests, review your dental history, check for bite and neuromuscular problems, and make treatment recommendations.
Our modern digital radiography technologies are imperative to delivering a precise dental diagnosis. This will reveal if gums are healthy or require periodontal treatment before starting any restorative work. Untreated periodontal disease will jeopardize the results of any dental work. After the health of the gums and jawbone is evaluated, Dr. Cristian creates a comprehensive treatment plan to replace all missing teeth, remove all decay, restore teeth, and establish proper teeth bite.
Dr. Cristian Dunker offers customised full mouth reconstructions for each patient depending on the severity of their condition. This means that no two procedures are alike and costs vary; one patient may need crowns and gum disease treatment, while others may need additional procedures.
It really depends on two things:
1. How compromised was your case to begin with? and which expert dentist is performing your dental reconstruction?
2. How well do you take care of your teeth? and if so do you follow up on your periodontal and cosmetic maintenance visits?
Having said that, We have seen many cases that have been doing great and functioning properly for more than 20 years, and also have seen cases which needed to be partly redone in 7 to 8 years. Please understand that there is no guarantee on how long the full mouth reconstruction lasts.
Dr. Cristian Dunker has the knowledge and experience to offer a perfect combination of different advanced dental procedures required for full mouth reconstruction in Gold Coast.
The cost of a Full Mouth Reconstruction can vary depending on the scale of treatment required as well as the type of rehabilitation that you get. Our experts will recommend a treatment option best suited to you and give you an estimate of the price and payment options during your free consultation visit.
Some patients may have concerns over the price of full mouth reconstructions and avoid the necessary treatment. The longer one goes without the necessary treatment, the great the pain and risk. For instance, an adult who loses a tooth and does not seek treatment will allow the jaw to weaken over time. In other cases, a gap can become infected just as a tooth can; especially if the individual does not keep it clean. The full mouth reconstruction process will give back complete functionality of the teeth.
We offer a number of dental financing options that enable you to pay over time. We accept a wide range of payment methods and have plenty of flexible pay later financial options including Afterpay, TLC, Humm and Access My Super.
Please call us at (07) 5588-3677 or Book Online now for your no obligation, free initial consultation. We look forward to helping you get your best smile ever!
With modern dental anaesthetics and sedation, no dental procedure has to hurt. Dr. Cristian Dunker can administer sedation dentistry to make your appointments comfortable and relaxing. He will also recommend the appropriate level of medication for your comfort and may suggest over-the-counter or prescription pain relievers to take after treatment.
