Small cosmetic issues can be fixed with teeth reshaping. For example, our Grand Haven dentists may recommend cosmetic contouring if you have a slightly misshapen tooth that shows when you smile and talk. We may also recommend cosmetic contouring if we notice one tooth is slightly longer than the rest of your front teeth.
Our cosmetic dentists use lasers or drills to gently remove tooth enamel. By removing enamel, we are able to effectively reshape your tooth so it’s more aesthetically pleasing. Cosmetic dentistry is as much an art as it is a science. Since there are no nerves in tooth enamel, you won’t experience any pain during the procedure. Teeth reshaping is safe and effective.
Contouring is ideal for patients with minor teeth imperfections. If your teeth need more than just a simple reshaping, other cosmetic dentistry options, such as porcelain veneers, might be better for you. Sometimes contouring is done in conjunction with other cosmetic dentistry procedures, such as teeth bonding, to provide the best results.
Dental contouring takes less than an hour, which means you’ll be able to enjoy immediate results after one appointment. Once our dentist is done removing enamel and is satisfied with how your tooth looks, they’ll polish it so it blends in with the rest of your natural teeth.
After the procedure, you should be able to eat and drink normally as soon as you leave our office. If you experience any discomfort that lasts more than a few days, give our office a call.
Cosmetic contouring is a great way to gain more confidence in your smile. At Grand Haven Smiles, we’re happy to go over your cosmetic dentistry options to help you make the best choice for your teeth.
