Enamel Contouring

Do you have a tooth with a small chip? Is one tooth too long? Maybe you’re dealing with a rough spot or sharp tooth that irritates your tongue or the inside of your cheek. You may want to talk to your dentist about fixing these minor problems with a process known as enamel contouring. Enamel is the tough outer covering of the tooth that protects the softer part inside and reshaping it to perfect a tooth’s appearance or correct a minor problem is an inexpensive cosmetic dentistry procedure that can be done right in your dentist’s office.

Contouring can be used to adjust spacing between teeth, correct slightly overlapping teeth, smooth rough edges, and make small adjustments to the shape of a tooth. You may have heard this process referred to as tooth contouring or re-contouring, enameloplasty, odontoplasty, or tooth shaping. Enamel contouring is a cosmetic dentistry technique that must be done by your dentist in his or her office. There is usually no anesthesia required, although if you do experience sensitivity your dentist can numb the area for the procedure.

The process may be combined with tooth bonding, another common cosmetic dentistry treatment that uses composite material to sculpt and shape the teeth. Some problems easily corrected using this procedure include uneven front teeth, small nicks or cracks in the surface of a tooth, overly pointed canine teeth, and overlapping or crowded teeth.

I had a long overdue deep cleaning, root canal/crown, AND fillings within a month. Dr. Thurman, Morgan, Kathy and staff were very attentive and kind with not ONLY the procedures and explanations but with checking up on me after the root canal. Also great at helping me figure out my insurance coverage and payments. Dental Elements is GREAT.
