Natural Tooth Shape

Our dental team will look to your existing smile as we design and craft your dental restoration. Some patients naturally develop teeth that are rounder, while others develop teeth with sharp angles. The key to successful treatment is creating a crown that matches your natural enamel shapes.


Another important thing to prioritize is that size of the patient’s dental restoration. We obviously want to make sure that your crown looks comparable in size to your natural teeth. However, we also want to ensure that your restoration isn’t too big, as this can create an uneven bite and TMJ problems.

Adjacent Teeth  

Our dental team will also take special care to ensure that your dental crown blends in with surrounding teeth. With that in mind, remember that professional dental whitening treatments are not effective on crowns. If you are going to lighten your natural teeth, it makes sense to do this before we create and shade your crown.

Don’t live long-term with untreated dental damage or poorly designed restorations. Our Novato crown dentists can help you get the attractive, functional, and health-supporting treatment that you need! Please reach out to our team by giving us a call, or using the Contact Us page on our website.
