Thanks to advancements in restorative dentistry it is now easier than ever before to get the dental crown you need when faced with dental damage or an infection. Our Glendale dentists are proud to offer truly customizable CEREC crowns to fit our patients’ needs. Keep reading to learn more about the key factors we consider in the crown creation process…

Natural Tooth Shape 

Using your existing teeth as inspiration, our dental team will craft a restoration that looks exceptionally natural for you. Did you know tooth shapes can vary quite a lot from patient to patient? In order to achieve seamless results, our team looks to your natural smile for inspiration.


Creating an appropriately sized dental restoration is all about:

  1. Coordinating with the size of adjacent teeth
  2. Ensuring that the crown takes up sufficient space on the gum line
  3. Sizing the dental crown in a way that facilitates healthy bite function

By taking all of these factors into account, our dental team is able to make restorations that both look great and function well.

Adjacent Teeth  

It is particularly important that our team looks at the teeth surrounding your crown, to ensure a seamless transition. One thing to keep in mind is that dental restorations cannot be lightened with teeth bleaching treatments. So, if you want to whiten your natural enamel, it’s a good idea to do this prior to having your crown placed, so that your restoration will match your post-treatment smile.

You don’t have to live with unsightly and uncomfortable dental damage for long. Please feel free to contact our Glendale CEREC dentists to get more information or to schedule a personal consultation. We’re here to help you smile again!
