Tooth Contouring and Reshaping

If you have minor cosmetic issues with your teeth that cause you to refrain from smiling freely in social settings, then tooth contouring and reshaping may be helpful for you. This procedure is also known as enameloplasty as it involves reshaping a tooth by removing some part of the enamel.

Tooth contouring and reshaping is a fairly simple procedure that does not require the need for local anesthesia as the enamel is a non-living part of the tooth and does not contain any nerves. With the use of a dental drill or a laser, the enamel is carefully sculpted to change the length or shape of a tooth. Once the tooth has been reshaped, it is buffed and polished to give it a smooth and shiny appearance.

One of the major advantages of this procedure is that it is quick and provides instant results. The whole process takes less than 30 minutes and there is no pain involved, making it an ideal choice for patients who dread long and painful treatments. It is a permanent and beautiful change to your smile and does not require any redoing as the enamel does not grow back once it has been reshaped.

Contouring and reshaping can only be used to fix minor cosmetic problems, like slight modifications to the length and shape of the teeth. The thickness of the enamel is only about two and a half millimeters, which means that only a limited amount of the structure can be reshaped. Removing too much of the enamel is not healthy as it makes the teeth weak, sensitive and prone to pulp infections, so the procedure is not fit for people looking for major changes to their smile.

Cosmetic contouring is a fast and effective way to gain a perfect smile. Call us at (954) 526-1927 to know more about this dental treatment.
