Your teeth's shape and size may not be uniform or proportional, making you hesitant to smile. However, a treatment known as tooth contouring can assist. It is intended to correct small flaws and misaligned teeth. At Soos Creek Dental in Covington, Washington, we specialize in innovative cosmetic dental procedures like teeth contouring that can help you attain a beautiful smile.
What Is Cosmetic Contouring?
Cosmetic contouring is a dental procedure that is used to improve the appearance of teeth that are worn down, fractured, broken, uneven, or misaligned. Often, even minor alterations can make a huge difference in your overall appearance. Cosmetic contouring is regarded as one of the most effective cosmetic dental techniques.
Is Dental Contouring Suitable for You?
If you believe contouring may be the answer to your problems, we will begin the process with an initial exam to see whether the surgery is suitable for you. This examination is extensive and frequently includes X-rays to confirm the location and size of the pulp in the tooth. Following the exam, if your dentist certifies that your teeth are healthy, that you have enough enamel for the procedure, and that you are able to undergo dental contouring, your appointment for the procedure will be booked.
The Benefits of Dental Contouring
Contouring may have the following advantages:
- Changing the form or size of your teeth to improve your appearance
- Repairing broken, chipped, crooked, or misaligned teeth
- Reducing the effects of tooth grinding (also known as bruxism)
Cosmetic Contouring Procedure
Cosmetic contouring is a straightforward process that involves the removal of some of your enamel to change the shape of your tooth or teeth. The purpose of cosmetic contouring is to improve your appearance by changing the form, length, or appearance of your teeth.
Your dentist accomplishes this by removing enamel from your teeth with a drill or laser. Because enamel is the hard outer covering that covers the delicate inner core of your teeth, this technique is limited by your specific tooth structure so that your tooth is not exposed to risk or potential injury. This technique is appealing since it is usually rapid, painless, and requires no recovery time. Typically, your dentist may perform it in a single appointment without the need for a local anesthetic.
