Not all dental restorations are created equal. If you truly want to achieve attractive results that will stand up to the tests of time, then it is imperative that you pursue customized crowns. Every restoration that comes out of our Saint Louis dental office is personalized to suit the patient’s needs. Keep reading to learn more about the restorative process, and what you can expect!

When a tooth is damaged, either due to infection or physical trauma, you will probably require a dental crown to restore the tooth’s appearance and functionality. These restorations stay in place permanently, and you’ll be able to treat them just like your natural teeth.  

It is so important to have your restoration designed to suit your needs:

In terms of aesthetics, our team will use your natural teeth as guides as we craft your crown. Some people have rounder edges to their teeth, while others have sharper angles to their dental enamel. We use your existing smile as the blueprint when making your crown. Likewise, your restoration will be shaded to blend with your real enamel.

It is also crucial that your crown is custom-fit to work harmoniously with adjacent teeth. When a restoration is not refined and properly placed, your whole smile can be thrown out of alignment. A poorly fitting crown may lead to premature enamel deterioration as well as TMJ dysfunction. 

Our Saint Louis dentists use high-quality, customizable ceramic to repair damaged smiles. This material mimics the appearance of natural dental enamel, and has been shown to hold up to the wear and tear of daily life.

No matter what the current state of your smile, our team can help you achieve lasting oral health and a smile that shines.  Give us a call to learn more or to schedule a personal consultation!
