Written by Dr. Scharfenberg on Aug 9, 2016

Many patients feel self-conscious or embarrassed to display their smiles after they have suffered from tooth loss. Replacement teeth will improve the function and the health of your smile, and it they can help you love your smile again!

In our Elmhurst dental office, we customize replacement teeth to ensure exceptional results. Keep reading to learn about how we personalize restorative treatment, and why this is so important!

The first thing that we need to consider is what size of replacement tooth will be appropriate for you. We will design a replacement tooth that fits in comfortably with your existing smile. When a replacement tooth is well-sized it makes it easy for the patient to eat and speak naturally!

We will also customize the shade and color of your replacement tooth, so that it looks natural and attractive. If you are interested in lightening your real teeth, it is best to do this before you have your replacement tooth placed. Once you’ve completed professional whitening treatment, we will craft your replacement tooth to match.

Finally, we refine the bite surface of your replacement tooth, to make sure that you are able to chew naturally, and to enable healthy TMJ functioning.

When it comes time to restore your smile with a dental prosthetic or a dental implant, talk to your dentist about the ways in which we can customize your replacement tooth to meet your unique needs.

Our Elmhurst dentists are happy to answer any questions that you may have, and provide you with additional information. Give our office a call to schedule a consultation with our helpful team!
