When it comes time to repair or rebuild your smile, you absolutely do not want to settle for a one-size-fits-all solution. Our Orland Park dentists take great pains to tailor our patients’ restorations to meet their specific needs. Keep reading to learn more about what this entails, and how our team customizes individual crowns.
As you probably already know, a dental crown is used to repair or rebuild a tooth that has been diminished due to infection or fracture. The crown is meant to build the tooth back up, so that it is functional, and to improve the appearance of the tooth.
One of the most important things for our team to take into account when crafting a crown is the size of the restoration. A well-made crown will not disrupt the overall balance of the patient’s smile; it’s critical that the top and bottom teeth are able to come together naturally and evenly. A poorly crafted crown can throw off the balance of the smile, and actually lead to premature enamel deterioration as well as TMJ damage.
The shape of the crown will also be tailored to meet your needs. Some people naturally have more angular teeth, while others have teeth that are rounded in shape. We’ll use your existing teeth as guides as we design your restorations. When your crowns are crafted with this level of precision, you can be sure that you’ll be happy with the final result.
Keep in mind, also, that every restoration will be shaded to match the patient’s real enamel. You never have to worry about your new crown looking too bright, too dark, or generally artificial.
No matter what the current state of your smile, restorative crowns can help you get your smile back on track, so that you can smile confidently again. The best way to get started is to call our Orland Park dentists for more information!
