O’Fallon Aesthetic Dentists Tailor Treatment To Suit Individual Patients

When you’re undergoing cosmetic or restorative dental treatment, you want to make sure that the end results of your treatment process look natural and attractive for you, as an individual. The best way to do this is to truly collaborate with your dental team: let them know what kinds of results you want, give them as much information as you can!

Our O’Fallon dentists take treatment personalization very seriously; we know that your smile is a huge part of your appearance, so you want it to look perfect. Today we’re giving you a quick overview of the factors we prioritize and customize during cosmetic or restorative treatment.

The first thing that we keep in mind when placing a crown, designing dental bonding, or crafting LUMINEERS is the size of the patient’s natural teeth. It is crucial that your restoration is sized appropriately for your smile: obviously for aesthetics, but also because a restoration that is too big or too small may cause you to alter your bite, which puts you at risk of suffering from premature dental damage and TMJ issues.

It’s also important to remember that, because we are all individuals, we naturally have different tooth shapes! Take a look at your teeth in the mirror: do they look angular or rounded? No matter where you fall tooth shape spectrum, our team will shape your restoration to mimic your natural dental shapes.

Finally, our dentist shades dental restorations to perfectly match our patients’ respective dental shades. Keep in mind that porcelain and composite resin do not change color in response to whitening treatments. So, you want to whiten your natural teeth before our team designs your restoration in order to ensure a perfect shade match.
