Full Mouth Reconstruction

Restoring Your Smile to Its Former Glory

Are you dealing with multiple dental problems? A full mouth reconstruction might be the solution you need to restore your smile and improve your dental health. Full mouth restoration involves a comprehensive dental treatment plan that combines various dental restoration services to address several dental issues at once, resulting in a fully functional and aesthetically pleasing smile. Among other things, this may include shifting your teeth with Invisalign, extracting diseased teeth, and adding dental implants, as well as crown, bridge or veneer restorations. At our restorative dentistry practice in South San Francisco, we offer full mouth restoration services to patients who need extensive dental work. Our experienced and skilled restoration dentist will work with you to create a personalized treatment plan that addresses your unique dental needs and concerns.

Dental Mouth Guard

Professional Protection for Your Teeth

Mouth guards are dental appliances designed to protect your teeth and mouth from injury during physical activity, prevent teeth grinding or clenching while sleeping, and treat various dental conditions. A dental mouth guard is custom-made by a dentist to fit your mouth comfortably and provide maximum protection.

Root Canal

Root Canal Specialist

If you are experiencing severe tooth pain, it is important to seek immediate dental care as it may be a sign of an underlying dental issue that requires prompt attention. One such issue that can cause significant pain is an infected or damaged tooth root, which may require a root canal procedure to treat. While the idea of such a procedure may cause some anxiety or fear, it is a common and highly effective treatment option for saving a damaged tooth and alleviating pain. The alternative option of treating the canals is to do nothing or extract the tooth, both of which will leave you toothless. Remember, you only have one set of adult teeth, which you need to eat, so you want to care for your teeth to the greatest extent possible.


No one likes hearing that they have cavities. But when you do get them, you need to act fast before it becomes more serious and more painful.

Our solutions include porcelain fillings, composite fillings, as well as inlays and onlays. Our dentist will work with you closely to give you the best dental solution for your needs. We’ll help you ensure that your teeth stay healthy and free of cavities and other damages.

Don't Let Cavities Ruin Your Smile: Prevention and Treatment Tips

Dental cavities, also known as tooth decay or dental caries, are probably the most common dental issues. Cavities occur when bacteria in the mouth produce acids that attack your tooth enamel. Over time, this acid erosion causes destruction and even holes in the teeth. Besides destroying the beauty of your smile, cavities unfortunately also lead to pain, sensitivity, and other oral health problems. If left untreated, cavities usually get worse and will eventually require a root canal. They can even potentially lead to tooth loss. Do you experience any pain or notice spots on your teeth that shouldn’t be there? It is important to see a dentist as soon as possible. A dentist will diagnose the problem by examining the teeth and sometimes using dental X-rays to confirm the diagnosis. Do not hesitate to contact a dentist for cavities before it gets too bad.

When many of your teeth are loose or painful, they may, unfortunately, be beyond saving. This condition is usually caused by advanced periodontal disease. And if you are not a good candidate for implants, then removing your teeth and replacing them with dentures may be the best way to eliminate the infection, restore the health of your mouth, and allow you to eat again. Periodontal disease causes bone loss, and bone if you don't catch it in time there will be very little structural support for the teeth. So, the dentist will have to remove them. At Vaksman Dental Group, we understand the impact that missing teeth can have on your daily life. They can affect your ability to speak clearly, enjoy your favorite foods, and feel confident in social situations. We believe that everyone deserves a smile they can be proud of. Let us help you regain your smile and confidence with our high-quality dentures that are custom-crafted to fit your unique needs.

What our happy patients say about us.

Jorge M.

Very professional, always helpful and smiling even early morning.
I've had Bernadette, Dr Wolfson and a few other people of their staff taking care of me and always felt they were doing everything to my best interest.
Of course they offer from time to time additional services but I never felt pressured to anything. I'm very happy and I'll keep going there as long as they offer the same quality. Thank you team, very good job !


Beth P.

The staff was wonderful. I went in for a cleaning, and they made sure it was a smooth, painless process. I am happy to say I found a new dentist as a recent transplant to SF. I am really happy with their practice. Dr. L'ebo is wonderful and so was her staff.


Dustin W.

You have found the dental dream team! Carrie + Bernadette are amazing and make it a pleasure to actually go to the dentist for cleanings. Dr. Volfson (the crown queen) does top notch work despite a notoriously difficult patient. Thanks for taking great care of my teeth! Highly recommended!
