Learn More About How Our Glendale Dentist Customizes Restorations and Cosmetic Treatments

So many people report that they feel hesitant about pursuing dental treatment precisely because they don’t want to end up with results that look fake or unnatural. Our Glendale dentists understand that each one of our dental patients is an individual—that is why our team makes it a priority to provide personalized treatment to suit the patient’s needs. Today we’re going to be talking about some of the ways that we personalize dental treatment in order to ensure natural looking results.

It all begins with using the correct materials; our team crafts restorations from porcelain and uses composite resin for aesthetic and structural dental treatments. Porcelain is a unique material in the world of dentistry because it naturally absorbs and reflects light at a similar rate to real enamel. Composite bonding, too, once cured and hardened, blends with real enamel.

The next thing that we take into account is the shape of the restoration or bonding. Different patients have different natural dental shapes—some teeth are simply more angular while other are rounded with soft edges. In order to deliver personalized results, our team assess your naturally occurring tooth dental shapes, and uses those shapes to inform the design of your restorations.

It’s also essential that the color of your bonding or restoration is appropriate for your smile. We are able to custom-shade both porcelain and composite resin, so that we are able to color-match your smile. If you are interested in whitening and brightening your natural teeth, it is best to do that before we complete dental bonding or place your restoration; that way, we can design your restoration to match your newly whitened dental enamel.
