Do you ever obsess over certain aspects of your smile as you look at your reflection in the mirror? Have you long been unhappy with a particular detail – such as a sharp or jagged tooth – but you are not sure how to address the issue? The good news is that we offer dental contouring, a cosmetic procedure that will allow you to attain a carefully sculpted smile. Wondering if this is something you can get excited about or if it’s something that will prove out of reach? Consider some reasons to go ahead and get excited, so you realize just how accessible contouring is for most smiles.
Reason #1: Qualifying Is Simple
We will simply need to make sure you have an adequate amount of enamel (outermost tooth layer) to sculpt – this is usually no problem. Why? Well, we only remove a minuscule bit of tooth tissue by gently sculpting it away with a handheld instrument. Think of it more as a buffing process that reveals a more beautiful smile.
Reason #2: It Is Quite Gentle
About that gentle factor – the buffing and smoothing process is known for its comfort. For the most part, patients do not require any type of anesthetic because receiving dental contouring is an effective process that is also quite easy on your teeth.
Reason #3: It Takes Little Time
Unlike cosmetic treatments that may require multiple visit and complex planning, dental contouring is simple. We will carefully remove tissue from the areas you require to soften sharpness, smooth texture issues, reduce length, improve tooth shape, or otherwise. Patients usually only need to schedule one visit to reach the smile goals they set for themselves.
