When it comes time to improve the appearance of your smile, you want to make sure that you’re not pursuing one-size-fits-all type of treatment. Your smile is unique; the restorative and cosmetic treatments that you use to achieve aesthetic results should honor and reflect that fact.

Our Toluca Lake dentists customize treatment to fit the respective need of our individual patients. Today we are reviewing some of the key considerations that we prioritize when designing personalized treatment plans.

Whether you’re refining your smile with bonding, receiving a dental crown, or replacing a missing tooth, the first thing our team needs to do is make sure that your restorative treatment allows you to maintain a properly sized tooth. Improperly sized teeth can put you at risk of suffering from uneven dental wear and tear, dental damage, and TMJ problems. So, our dentist will ensure that your post-treatment tooth is sized so as to maintain healthy bite alignment.

Now on to shape: take a look in the mirror, do your teeth look more angular or rounded? Different people naturally have different tooth shapes. Unfortunately, many poor-quality restorations do not take these individualities into account. Our dental team mimics the patient’s natural dental shapes to achieve a seamless effect.

One of the final considerations for any cosmetic and restorative treatment is color matching. Whether you’re using composite resin or porcelain to achieve aesthetic results, our team will custom-shade the material so that it blends with your existing dental enamel. Because neither porcelain or composite resin are affected by dental whitening treatments, it is important that you complete any whitening of your natural dental enamel prior to undergoing restorative treatment.

Our Toluca Lake dentists are here to give you any additional information that you may need regarding cosmetic and restorative care. Give us a call to learn more and to schedule a personal consultation with our team.
