Our Saint Louis Dentist Walks You Through The Crown Creation Process

Written by Dr. Grayem on Mar 9, 2021

Undoubtedly, dental damage is a drag, but it doesn’t have to derail you for long. Restorative crowns repair and rebuild damaged teeth, and the results are more natural looking and feeling than ever before.

Here are a few things our Saint Louis dentists consider when crafting personalized crowns:


One person may have teeth that are rounded, with smooth edges, while another developed teeth that are more angular and pointy in shape. No tooth shape is inherently better than another—the key to successful treatment is to use the patient’s natural tooth shape as a guide for his or her restoration. Our dentists create restorations that mimic existing dental shapes exactly. 


Obviously, there are aesthetic benefits to ensuring that the size of your restoration is in harmony with the rest of your smile. However, this is also imperative so that your restoration functions optimally with your existing teeth. When a restoration is poorly sized you may develop enamel damage, dental grinding, and TMJ dysfunction.


Gone are the days of worrying that your restoration is going to look fake/too white/unnaturally bright. Because our team is able to custom-shade your restorations, you know that your restorative work with blend in seamlessly with your real teeth.

There is truly no reason to continue living with a damaged smile. And, the sooner that you seek treatment, the better your long-term dental prognosis, so don’t wait! Give our Saint Louis dentists a call to get started.
