The Non-Invasive Method That Contours Teeth Into a Stunning Smile
Enamel shaping – also known as contouring – is the process of shaping natural teeth to improve their overall appearance. This treatment includes fixing minor problems in the shape or texture of your teeth.
What Problems Does Enamel Shaping Fix?
A versatile dental treatment, enamel shaping can be used to repair and correct a number of aesthetic complaints including:
- Chipped enamel
- Pits in the enamel
- Irregular teeth
- Uneven teeth
- Overlapping teeth
- Rough edges
- Oversized teeth
- Misshapen teeth
Perhaps you have uneven front teeth, or your canine teeth are almost vampire-like in their pointiness. Whatever the unbalance is in your smile, enamel shaping can buff away the imperfections and irregularities to give you a smile that feels good and isn’t memorable for its flaws.
How Is Enamel Shaping Done?
The enamel shaping process is relatively simple, but it does take artistry and a meticulous hand to perform. Your dentist will use a sanding disk or fine diamond burs in order to sand your tooth or teeth. This method removes any roughness or pits and slightly reshapes the tooth. Once your teeth have been smoothed and/or reshaped, they will be polished to finish the process. In most cases, enamel shaping only takes one visit to the dentist to complete, which means the results and your new smile are immediate.
Why Should I Choose Enamel Shaping?
Enamel shaping is attractive to patients who are apprehensive about anesthesia or any sort of dental pain. Contouring enables individuals to still get a stunning smile with a less-invasive treatment and, when used in conjunction with dental bonding as contouring often is, the results are a reshaped smile that is gorgeous and flawless.
Contouring teeth is a fine art. And while it is surface work and typically does not require anesthesia, that doesn’t mean enamel shaping is an insignificant dental treatment. The small repairs that enamel shaping is capable of making can significantly improve the look of your smile.
So many people choose to just live with the irritations that their teeth may be causing – whether functional or aesthetic. But there is a very easy and fast solution available. Removing problem parts of the enamel or restructuring small portions of a tooth for a smooth look create a gorgeous, uniform smile in minutes.
Contour Your Smile Quickly
When you are dissatisfied with the appearance of your smile, but your teeth aren’t in such bad condition that major restorative dentistry or cosmetic dentistry overhauls are necessary, enamel shaping is one of the most practical and efficient options you can find.
Irregular teeth become cohesive, minor problems that are major annoyances disappear, and your smile is dramatically improved with enamel shaping.
