The natural human smile tends to have flaws and imperfections. While these do not always affect the function of our bite, they can have a lasting effect on self-confidence and esteem. After all, many people wish they had a picture-perfect smile.
If there is something about your smile that makes you embarrassed, such as a lopsided tooth or one that is longer than the others, then come see us at KK Dental Center. We offer comprehensive enamel contouring.
Enamel contouring is a simple dental procedure used to treat cosmetic imperfections or flaws. It is the shaping and molding of the natural tooth enamel to remove cracks, chips, or correct a lopsided tooth. The technical term for this procedure is an enameloplasty, and it can be completed in a single appointment.
The primary tool used during enamel contouring is minute drills, and lasers meant to make minor changes without affecting the overall function of the tooth. At the end of the treatment, your tooth is polished, and you can go home and use it like normal.
The majority of the benefits of enamel contouring are cosmetic. The treatment is simple and can eliminate unwanted dental lumps, bumps, or unevenness. We can also shape the tooth to make it match the length of the other ones.
Another benefit is that the procedure takes less than half an hour, so you can go home in a short time and get the smile you desire without needing to invest in costly or time-consuming treatments. Plus, the treatment does not affect any of the nerves. This means you will not feel any pain or discomfort and will not have lasting side effects.
