Don’t Settle For One-Size-Fit-All Restorations; The Mill Valley Dentist Explains Why

Written by Dr. McConnell on Dec 13, 2022

Our Mill Valley dentists make it simple, straightforward, and fast to repair damaged teeth. Personalized dental crowns allow our team to rebuild missing parts of your tooth, so that your smile looks whole and healthy again.

In our office, we always customized restorations and crowns to suit our individual patients. We believe that this is absolutely crucial to delivering results that are attractive, structurally sound, and long-lasting.

Obviously, customized restorations are important for aesthetic reasons. Our team designs crowns that are shaped, sized, and shaded to match the patient’s existing smile. In the end, your restoration should blend in seamlessly with your smile as whole.

Your crown also needs to be customized to your smile so that it functions optimally and protects the underlying health and structure of your smile. When a crown is too large, or poorly shaped, this can cause your bite to shift. You can also develop problems with your temporomandibular joint: causing pain, oral health problems, and limited jaw mobility.

Poorly fit restorations are unlikely to stand up to the wear and tear of daily life. In order to maximize the life of your crown, you want to make sure that it helps you maintain healthy and even bite surfaces. 

When you meet with our dental team, we’ll assess the state of your smile, and give you some personalized recommendations on how to move forward with treatment. Throughout the treatment process, we will use your existing teeth as models for your restorations.

If you are dealing with existing dental damage, the most important thing is to seek prompt treatment for oral health issues. When these problems are left untreated, they can intensify and create additional oral health problems down the road.

Our Mill Valley dentists are here to answer any questions that you may have, and to provide you with the personalized treatment recommendations you need to stay well. Feel free to contact us by giving us a call or using the Contact Us page on our website!
