Also known as teeth reshaping, dental contouring is a quick, easy and conservative solution for improving the appearance of a problematic tooth. Because of the ease in which contouring can be performed by Dr. Hamon, many patients prefer dental contouring to other, more invasive procedures.
The procedure involves removing small amounts of tooth enamel in order to alter its shape, length or surface. Dental instruments and abrasives allow dentists to remove the enamel, and then sculpt and polish the tooth to its desired appearance. Many patients prefer this conservative treatment because their smile is improved without looking drastically different.
Healthy teeth and gums are necessary for dental contouring. Patients with deep cracks, decay or extensive chipping may not be good candidates.
Even though the reshaping process involves removing only a few millimeters, dental contouring goes to show that even little changes can make a big difference in the appearance of your smile. Keep in mind that teeth reshaping is best for patients who want only subtle adjustments or repairs. For a more noticeable smile makeover, consider veneers. Visit Dr. Hamon and find out if dental contouring is a good option for you.
