One of the first impressions people get from you is your smile, and if you aren’t pleased with the way it looks it can affect how you interact with people. Chipped teeth, cracked teeth, or misshapen teeth can all cause people to be displeased with their smiles. A great way to fix these problems is to go to your local dentist’s office near you for tooth contouring.
Tooth contouring, also known as tooth reshaping or enameloplasty, is the process of having the shape of one’s tooth altered to better match the rest of the teeth in the mouth. It is a fairly simple procedure where a dentist will typically file down a rough edge or small chip in a tooth to help smooth it out and improve the tooth’s appearance. The dentist will reshape the enamel of the tooth while making sure that the sensitive underneath layers of the tooth remains protected. At Higson Dental our experienced dentists provide tooth contouring services to people in and around the Grande Prairie area of Alberta.Contact Us »
There are a number of reasons why a person would want to book a tooth contouring appointment with a trusted dentist near them in their area. You may have chipped a tooth in a sports injury, a slip and fall, biting down on a hard candy, or some other dental emergency. No matter what the cause of your chipped or broken tooth, contouring can help to soften the shape of it once again. Tooth contouring can help:
When you go to see your nearby family dentist they will have a consultation with you to determine if your tooth is a good candidate for tooth contouring or if it needs different restorative methods such as a dental crown, or a porcelain veneer. If your tooth only needs minor reshaping then it typically will be a good fit for tooth contouring. The dentist will then use gentle abrasive polishers of different grit to reshape the enamel of the tooth until it is satisfactory. The best part about tooth contouring is that no anesthesia is required and the procedure typically only takes between 10-30 minutes to complete.
