Our Glendale restorative dentists believe that all of our patients deserve to benefit from restorative and aesthetic care that is customized to suit their needs. Keep reading to learn more about the ways we personalize crowns to deliver optimal results…

Tooth Shape

Did you know that tooth shapes vary a lot from person to person? While your natural teeth may be angular, and sharp, your neighbor may have teeth that are rounded, with soft edges. Whether your existing teeth are blocky, angled, squared off, or rounded, our team will be able to craft your restoration with similar attributes. This is one thing that we do to ensure attractive, natural-looking results.

Tooth Size

It is also imperative that our dental team creates a restoration that truly fits your smile. Poorly sized restorations can throw your entire smile off balance. Many patients with unsatisfactory crowns end up with premature enamel damage as well as bite discomfort and dysfunction. By taking the time to ensure a proper fit, we set our patients up for success down the road.

Enamel Color

Today’s dental technology allows our team to exactly and precisely match your restoration to your natural teeth. Make sure to talk to your dentist if you are interested in whitening your smile, because it makes sense to undergo professional whitening treatment prior to getting your crown. Once we achieve the level of whitening you’re looking for, we can shade your restoration accordingly. 

Getting a dental crown in a timely manner can restore your smile to health, and help you avoid additional damage down the road. As always, our Glendale dentists are here to help you with additional information and support—give us a call!
