You want your smile to bring you and those who see it satisfaction. Sometimes smaller imperfections are all that stand between you and your ideal smile. Dental contouring is a cosmetic dentistry procedure that reshapes enamel to be more aesthetically pleasing, fixing imperfections that make you hesitant to flash those pearly whites.
If the issue you have with your teeth is made up of several subtle imperfections than dental contouring might be an appropriate procedure for you.
This means imperfections like:
Overcrowding– Teeth appear to overlap and don’t seem to have enough room in the mouth.
Chipped tooth– A chip in a tooth, depending on the size of the chip, can easily be filed and contoured to look even again.
Crooked teeth– If teeth are slightly crooked contouring can be used to take of millimeters of tooth material making them appear straight without actually moving them at all.
Angles– If there are certain points or angles of your teeth that you are unhappy with they can be smoothed or rounded to be more appealing.
Contouring can also be used to change the personality of your smile. Some cosmetic dentists ask their patients if they would prefer their teeth to look more feminine or masculine and then shape them accordingly.
