Does your smile suffer from minor cosmetic issues, such as pits or grooves on the surface? Maybe your teeth are uneven or pointed? If you have issues with the texture of your tooth’s surfaces or ridges that cause your teeth to lack a streamlined appearance, teeth contouring may offer a cosmetic solution.
What Is Teeth Contouring?
Your teeth are composed of several translucent layers of tissue. The outermost layer is called enamel. Teeth contouring involves gently polishing away a minimal portion of your enamel to improve the appearance of your teeth.
What Are the Benefits of Teeth Contouring?
Tooth contouring requires no prep work and can be completed in one sitting. Your dentist will create a personalized plan to improve the appearance of your smile. The benefits of tooth contouring include:
- Requires no prep work
- Cost-effective means of providing a uniform smile
- Corrects unevenness, ridges, a too-long tooth, pointy appearance, and jaggedness
- May correct gently overlapping teeth, removing your need for braces
Do You Make A Good Candidate for Teeth Contouring?
If you have minor surface imperfections you may make a fantastic candidate for contouring. By consulting with our team regarding your concerns and cosmetic goals, we can determine if tooth bonding is the best solution for you. If you have mildly cracked or chipped teeth, or gaps, or desire the lengthening of a single tooth, teeth bonding may offer a more appropriate solution.
