Novato Dentist Discusses Important Factors In The Crown Creation Process

Written by Dr. McConnell on Mar 16, 2021

When we craft a restoration in our Novato dental office, we do so with our patient’s unique needs in mind. Here are a few of the considerations our team prioritizes when creating a dental crown:


Undoubtedly, we want the aesthetics of your dental restoration to shine. However, we can’t lose sight of the fact that, first and foremost, your crown needs to be functional. That is why our team sizes every restoration to fit the patient’s needs, exactly. A poorly sized crown can but unhealthy stress on your dental enamel and your temporomandibular joints


Dental shapes can be quite different from patient to patient. For example, while your enamel may be rounded and smooth, with soft edges, other people have teeth that are more angular and pointy. No matter what your natural teeth look like, we can create restorations that honor and imitate your existing enamel shapes.  


One of the primary advantages of using composite resin and porcelain to restore your smile is that both of these materials are colored to match your smile’s level of whiteness, exactly. The shade of your restoration will blend seamlessly with adjacent natural teeth.

Truly personalized dental restorations can make all the difference to the way your smile looks and feels. If you have any questions about restorative dentistry in general, or the crown creation process in particular, please feel free to contact our Novato dentists!
