What is Enamel Shaping?
If you have noticed chips in your teeth or other minor imperfections in your smile, you can benefit from investing in enamel shaping. Our dentists in Waco, TX can help smooth out imperfections for a flawless and stunning smile.
Enamel shaping, also known as contouring, is a cosmetic procedure during which one of our dentists reshapes teeth that are too long or uneven to improve their overall appearance. This simple and painless procedure requires no anesthesia and can be completed in one quick visit to Today’s Family Dental.
When to Consider Enamel Shaping
If you find that you’re unhappy with the look of your smile and would like to get those minor imperfections fixed, you should consider enamel shaping. Cosmetic procedures such as these, although not urgent, are personal choices that can be made if a patient is unhappy with the state of their teeth.
This cosmetic treatment isn’t just about improving the look of your smile. Often, enamel shaping is used to improve an individual’s dental health. By removing crevices or overlaps between teeth, enamel shaping can help prevent food and bacteria from becoming trapped in the teeth. Ideal candidates for enamel shaping are patients who have:
- Chipped teeth
- Sharp or long teeth
- Irregular or uneven teeth
Consulting with your local Waco dentist will help you get the full details of the procedure and determine whether this cosmetic treatment is the right choice for you.
