While it’s true some cosmetic dental treatments can be pretty lengthy, others are very quick and relatively easy and of course this helps keep them affordable. This can be a great solution if you’d like to quickly improve your smile but don’t want to spend too much money or time doing so.
Enamel Contouring and How It Can Help
One particularly helpful kind of cosmetic dental treatments are called enamel contouring and is a way of slightly changing the overall shape of your teeth. To do this, our dentists at the Central Park S. Dental Care will need to remove a very small amount of tooth enamel. This does not hurt but can make a surprising amount of difference to the overall contour of your teeth. The end result will be relatively subtle but it can be great if you have a tooth that is slightly overlapping or it can be used to correct the alignment of a tooth that is just slightly protrusive or rotated. Enamel contouring can also be used to help remove some small imperfections in the surface of your teeth.
To find out if this treatment is right for you, our cosmetic dentist will need to carefully assess the health of your teeth as they need to be strong and free from periodontal disease and decay. Treatment is carefully planned to make sure only a minimal amount of enamel is removed. Once your teeth have been reshaped, they are gently polished to give a natural luster.
Using Enamel Contouring with Dental Bonding
We often use enamel contouring in conjunction with other kind of cosmetic dental treatments called dental bonding. This is another quick and easy fix to help improve the appearance of your teeth and it uses tooth colored composite resin which is the same material used to fill teeth. We always carry a huge range of different colors of this material so it’s easy to get an exact match with your natural tooth color. The great thing about dental bonding is that it can quickly mend any small imperfections in your teeth, for example areas that might have become worn down or chipped or which are cracked. It’s another treatment that can be completed in just one visit and once the composite resin is in place, it is carefully shaped and polished so it will blend in beautifully with the rest of your teeth.
