What You Need to Know About Cosmetic Contouring

Everyone wants a bright, healthy smile. Unfortunately, no matter your dental health, you may have certain minor cosmetic issues that to you, do not seem so minor. When this happens, it often prevents people from smiling as much as they like, causing them to feel self-conscious of their otherwise beautiful selves. If you find yourself in this situation, you may wish to look into cosmetic contouring, which, under certain circumstances, can be the solution to all your problems. Please read on and reach out to our experienced New Jersey dental team to learn more about what cosmetic contouring can do for you.

What does cosmetic contouring mean?

Cosmetic contouring, also sometimes referred to as tooth reshaping, is a rather simple dental procedure. In this procedure, your dentist will modify the shape of your teeth using drills or lasers, which will remove some of your tooth’s enamel. From here, your dentist will polish your teeth, and you’re done! As we said, this is a simple procedure that can make all the difference in the world. If you have teeth slightly larger than you would like, or slightly misshapen teeth, this may be the procedure for you.

What are the benefits of cosmetic contouring?

To start, it is one of the most efficient and easiest ways to make your smile how you’ve always wanted it to be (it oftentimes takes less than 30 minutes). Additionally, the contouring process is entirely painless, and once we make these changes, you will never have to come back for another contouring again. That being said, after the procedure, you must ensure you maintain your dental hygiene by brushing and flossing regularly. You must protect the tooth enamel you have left. If you fail to do so, you may discover that your teeth have become sensitive.
