Changing The Shape Of A Tooth Through Cosmetic Dentistry

Why does your smile seem uneven or asymmetrical? A relatively minor issue with the shape or size of a certain tooth may create problems for your smile that make you uncomfortable. Fortunately, this is a problem that your Shrewsbury, MA dentist is prepared to deal with! Through the right cosmetic dental procedure, it is possible to correct issues with theĀ  shape or size of a tooth that seems out of place in your smile. In some cases, this work can be completed in as little as one appointment, so you can start to show off your improved appearance in a surprisingly short time.

Problems With The Shape Or Size Of Teeth Can Hurt Your Smile

Teeth that appear misshapen, either because of damage or natural flaws, can stand out in your smile in ways that you do not appreciate. It is also possible for a tooth to seem out of place because of its improper size. Even if these issues do not affect your dental health, it can be frustrating for you to see that your smile appears uneven. These are issues that cosmetic dentistry can address, and through less work – and in less time – than you might expect.

Undergoing A Bonding And Contouring To Improve Your Smile

Through bonding and contouring work, your dentist may be able to correct the issues you have with your appearance in just one appointment! If your tooth is too large to fit in with the rest of your smile, or if it seems jagged or uneven, contouring work can carefully change its shape with the careful removal of enamel. The bonding procedure can hide damages and discoloration, add size to a tooth, and generally improve its shape. This procedure relies on composite resin material, which also works as an effective tooth-colored dental filling.

Ask Your Dentist About The Benefits Of Porcelain Veneers

By placing porcelain veneers on teeth that look unattractive or out of place, we can renew your confidence in your smile. Veneers are custom shells that only cover the fronts of teeth, which means that only small changes to your tooth structure are required. After providing minimal preparatory work and taking measurements of your teeth at an initial appointment, you can return to have custom veneers affixed at a second visit. Typically, patients are able to start showing off their restored smile after that second appointment!
