What Goes into Cosmetic Contouring?

Posted on 12/21/2020 by Dr. Todd Rogers
Did you know that you can have cosmetic contouring performed to improve your smile? If you have not heard of the treatment before, the following information will give you further details about the aesthetic and oral health benefits of this dental treatment. What Is Cosmetic Contouring? Cosmetic contouring involves contouring the smile to improve the appearance of irregular, damaged, or worn teeth. During the treatment, we remove any chips or worn tooth edges while subtly reshaping the teeth to enhance a patient's smile. The procedure allows us to make small cosmetic changes that significantly enhance a patient's smile. Also, during the procedure, we will remove a small amount of enamel to change the shape and length of a tooth. We often combine this step with bonding. This makes it possible for us to use a composite resin to create a natural-looking smile. By using this approach, we can smooth out fractures and get rid of any sharp curves. Can I Combine Cosmetic Contouring with Tooth Whitening? For maximum results, we can include in-office tooth whitening with cosmetic contouring during an appointment. If you have most of your natural teeth, you can bundle both procedures at the time you set an appointment. During the contouring process, we will examine your teeth to see where they can benefit the most from contouring. We use a sanding tool to gently erase flaws on the surface and sides of the teeth. No rough or uneven areas will remain after the teeth have been contoured. Therefore, whitening the teeth can add to the impact of your new and improved smile. Compared to other dental cosmetic procedures, cosmetic contouring offers a quick fix that greatly improves a person's smile. No anesthesia is needed and the process takes only a small amount of time. If you would like to know more about cosmetic contouring and/or in-office whitening services, give us a call and set an appointment today....
