Is your smile slightly imperfect? Do you keep your lips closed so that others do not get a glimpse of your minor imperfections? Perhaps you have two teeth that slightly overlap. Maybe you have had an injury that has led to a chipped tooth. For these and other minor imperfections of your teeth, tooth recontouring can help.
Tooth recontouring is one of the easiest options for cosmetically repairing your teeth. As such, it is typically a good choice for very small imperfections and should not be used in place of other cosmetic options, such as braces, crowns or veneers. However, if you have minor damage, such as chips, or small concerns, such as overlaps, misalignment or teeth that are too large, recontouring is an easy and convenient way for you to get a gorgeous smile.
The beauty of tooth recontouring is that it does not require a lot of extra work for our cosmetic dentist and often only requires one appointment for you. Before beginning the treatments, our practitioner will start with an initial consultation. During this time, he will discuss the goals that you have for your mouth to ensure that both of you are on the same page. Next, our dentist will examine your mouth and take images to ensure that your teeth are healthy and have enough enamel on them.
Once our dentist determines that you will benefit from tooth recontouring, he will either set you up with another appointment on a different day or will begin the procedure immediately. Once the work is done, our dentist will use a special attachment to polish your teeth well, leaving them smooth and more beautiful than ever.
Overall, tooth recontouring is incredibly quick and easy and need not fill you with any stress or concern. Your appointment should not last very long, and you can have the beautiful teeth of which you have always dreamed.
