Full Mouth Dental Reconstruction


Do you feel comfortable with your own smile? Do you have to consciously alter your natural smile to avoid embarrassment – every day? Do you keep your lips together when you smile?

Now, visualize how liberating it would be to NOT have to think about it anymore. See yourself with your new smile, your new attitude, your new self-confidence, and your NEW LIFE.

Dentistry has evolved dramatically in recent years. You may have old dentistry that was done in bits and pieces. Much of it may be worn, resulting in collapsed bites, flat teeth, and difficulty with chewing or bite problems. This wear and patchwork quilt of old dental work creates an appearance that can age you beyond how you feel. Furthermore, a poor bite can cause jaw joint problems, muscle tenderness, and evenheadaches. Your chewing and speech may be affected, as well.

Full mouth reconstruction, also known as "smile makeover" or "smile rejuvenation," is a demanding area of cosmetic dentistry that often requires a combination of many disciplines. Most importantly, it requires planning and advanced skills on the part of the dentist.

Dr. Michael Barr has been performing Smile Makeovers in Boynton Beach for patients from all over Palm Beach County, out of state, and even overseas for years. Every photo you see on this website is a real patient at Palm Beach Smiles. Perhaps it's your time to get that "Palm Beach Smile" you've always wanted.

Your Dental Hygienist!

Normally we think of a teeth cleaning as just that. Our tongues love the smooth and clean feeling we get after visiting our dental hygienist.

But there's another huge benefit to regular teeth cleaning. Hygienists spend time in your mouth. That give them the opportunity to spot suspicious tissue or other possible signs of oral cancer.

Oral cancer has a fantastically high cure rate - but only if it's detected early.

Another reason to love your dental hygienist!

Smile Makeovers

Maybe you remember that TV show, Extreme Makeovers?

They took people who were unhappy with their appearance and let surgeons and dentists perform cosmetic miracles on their bodies and teeth.

Well, a complete smile makeover like that can be done by many dentists, And often it only takes two visits!

Invisalign - Clear Dental Aligners

Invisalign® Clear Braces Palm Beach County

At Palm Beach Smiles, we are excited to announce that we now offer Invisalign™Orthodontic Treatment. Dr. Barr has been performing cosmetic orthodontics in his Boynton Beach practice since 2007. Dr. Barr's vast experience in cosmetic dentistry, spanning over 25 years, makes the integration of Invisalign™ Treatment a perfect match.

We are proud to offer Invisalign™ - The Clear Alternative to Braces™ at our Boynton Beach office.

Are you looking for a discreet way to straighten your teeth?

Invisalign Treatment is as close to a "dental magic wand" as we can get. Invisalign treatment uses a series of invisible, clear plastic trays, also known as "aligners," to straighten your teeth comfortably and efficiently.

Invisalign aligners are truly invisible when worn. You'll wear each aligner for two weeks before changing to the next aligner. You can go about your normal daily activities while wearing your Invisalign aligners. Only you will know, unless you want to tell your friends and coworkers.

If you live in Boynton Beach or the surrounding Palm Beach County area, come see us for Invisalign treatment.
Advantages of Invisalign Treatment:
  1. Truly invisible - No brackets or wires visible in your smile during treatment.
  2. More comfortable - No brackets or wires to irritate your lips and cheeks. Invisalign aligners will not alter your speech. Nobody will know!
  3. Removable - Invisalign clear aligners can be removed for eating, drinking, brushing and flossing. You're flossing, right? ;-)
  4. No worries about brackets or wires coming loose at inconvenient/embarrassing times. Invisalign Treatment is perfect for patients in high profile or public positions or those who just would rather keep it a secret.
  5. Did we mention Invisalign aligners are INVISIBLE? ;-)

Tooth Enamel

Tooth enamel is very hard but...
That doesn't mean you can't break it.

Our office recommends to avoid eating "hard foods" such as popcorn. Don't crack nut shells with your teeth or chew on ice. Opening packages with your teeth can also damage the enamel.

It's not just the sugar - it's also the acid
Sugar and acids are your teeth's worst enemies. What are we talking about? Soft drinks, energy drinks, fruit juices, and candy.

Because of the acid content, Mountain Dew seems to be the worst of the worst. There is even a name for the damage it does and it is called "Dew Mouth."

These erode the tooth enamel, making it highly susceptible to decay. Parents, watch your kid's consumption of these because young children's enamle hasn't developed fully. This makes these drinks even more damaging for kids.

As well as eliminating the above (or at least reducing their consumption), it is recommended to always brush and floss after every meal. If you can't, use a sugar-free xylitol chewing gum after a meal. Also rinse your mouth with a high quality dental mouthwash.
