Tooth contouring, a procedure also called enameloplasty) is a way to alter the shape of a patient’s tooth, not to mention the surface, which can start to become stained and experience plaque and tartar buildup over time.
Pits and bumps can also start to develop in the tooth which can lead to bacterial growth and cavities.
The benefits of a tooth contouring and reshaping procedure at Shervin M. Louie, DDS extend beyond simple aesthetics and reach into functional and preventive as well.
Below are a few things you should know about the tooth contouring procedure.
1.) Tooth Contouring is Painless!
Many dental procedures involve the use of novocaine or some other type of numbing agent. But not the tooth contouring procedure. Tooth contouring is simple, fast, and relatively pain-free.
2.) You Have to Have a Sufficient Amount of Enamel
The best candidates for the tooth contouring procedure already have a fair amount of tooth enamel to work with. For those of our patients who are in need of more major dental restoration work or lack the necessary amount of enamel for the procedure will want to consider other options like dental veneers.
3.) Tooth Contouring is an Easy Way to Boost Self-Confidence
A great smile will open new doors you didn’t know existed before. Having a smooth, contoured set of pearly whites will help you stand out in a crowd and leave you with a smile more often — on a daily basis!
