Cosmetic Dental Tooth Contouring

Cosmetic Contouring at Neu Family DentalYour smile is the first thing that others notice about you. It is often the first impression that you make, and can speak volumes before you ever say anything. A major component of your smile is your teeth. Any flaws in your teeth, especially the ones at the front of your mouth, are instantly noticeable when you smile. Even small flaws can make a major difference in its quality. One of the flaws that can impact the appearance of your smile, and affect your confidence, is uneven teeth. If uneven teeth are bringing down the quality of your smile, Neu Family Dental can help with cosmetic contouring.

What Is Cosmetic Contouring?

Cosmetic contouring is a non-invasive procedure that is performed to improve both the look and the feel of your uneven teeth. Commonly called tooth reshaping or cosmetic reshaping, this procedure is done to make minor changes to the appearance of your teeth. It is completely safe and pain-free. There is no need for a local anesthetic.

Using cosmetic contouring, we can correct some different issues. These issues include such things as:
•  Small chips in your enamel.
•  Minor overlapping of your teeth.
•  Teeth that appear longer than the rest.
•  Teeth that are oddly shaped.

The Cosmetic Contouring Procedure

Before we perform cosmetic contouring, we first need to examine your mouth. The condition of your teeth is evaluated, and digital x-rays are taken. The purpose of the exam is to make sure that your mouth is healthy, and that cosmetic contouring will provide you with the best possible results.

This procedure is meant for the correction of minor flaws. Larger flaws will require other treatments, such as veneers or crowns. Attempting to correct larger issues with cosmetic contouring can leave the treated tooth susceptible to serious damage. The procedure is performed using a specialized tool that quickly grinds away small amounts of enamel, effectively removing imperfections. The tool buffs and polishes your teeth to a more beautiful finish.

Benefits of Cosmetic Contouring

There are several benefits to the cosmetic contouring procedure:
•  It is a quick procedure, and usually takes less than 30 minutes to complete.
•  The procedure is completely painless. There are no nerve endings in your enamel. No anesthetic or sedation is needed.
•  The results are instant.
•  The procedure is affordable.
•  Your oral health is improved. Flaws, such as minor overlapping, create an ideal hiding place for bacteria and plaque. By removing the enamel, your teeth are made easier to clean, thus reducing your risk for tooth decay and gum disease.
•  The results are permanent. The enamel we remove does not grow back.

Are There Any Downsides to Cosmetic Contouring?

Cosmetic contouring provides fast, effective results for minor imperfections. It does still have a few drawbacks:
•  It is not ideal for significant dental changes. The procedure is only designed to make small alterations to the structure of your teeth. If you need bigger, more drastic, changes, other options will be explored.
•  There is a risk of damaging the teeth. When cosmetic contouring is performed, enough enamel needs to be left behind to protect the teeth. If too much enamel is removed, the teeth are put at risk for damage.

With cosmetic contouring, we can adjust minor issues in your teeth, and can greatly improve the quality of your smile. For more information, and to find out if cosmetic contouring is right for you to call our office at (224) 484-0227.
