Cosmetic Dental Contouring
Selective reshaping of tooth enamel can create a more pleasing smile. Cosmetic contouring can be used to help treat a number of common dental problems from worn and uneven tooth surfaces to small chips and worn biting areas.
This is a simple and painless reshaping procedure in which the tooth structure is reshaped with finely ground diamonds. Here small amounts of the tooth’s enamel, the outer layer covering the tooth, can be adjusted in order to change the shape, length and surface texture of the teeth.
Minor imperfections can be adjusted and even the smallest change via contouring in the right area can make a massive difference to the appearance of your teeth and smile, giving the illusion of uniformity and alignment.
When combined with other treatments, for example a whitening procedure or cleaning, the changes to your smile can be quite dramatic, boosting your confidence and self-esteem and leaving you with a gleaming smile to show off at work and when out and about with your friends.
