DENTAL RESTORATIONS: TREATMENT PLANING AND DESIGN

The comfort, functionality, and appearance of a dental restoration are greatly dependent on the design. We take steps to ensure accuracy and optimize outcomes.

  • During the initial evaluation, your dentist will examine the tooth or teeth and discuss your goals, then recommend the most conservative restoration.
  • When taking impressions and gathering other diagnostic data, we seek to find the most stable and properly aligned jaw position.
  • The color and transparency of restorative material is adjusted to match your tooth. Many restorations are fabricated in a dental laboratory. In that case, a lab technician comes to our office for color analysis.
  • Restorations are shaped to mimic the appearance of a tooth, with proper symmetry and proportions.
  • Depending on the type of restoration, materials may include composite resin, porcelain, zirconia, or porcelain fused to metal.
