What Can Enamel Contouring Do For You?

by | Date Published:

Many dental treatments are designed to add materials to a patient’s natural teeth. Dental bonding, for example, allows our dentist to attach dental resin to dental enamel. Porcelain veneers also cover a person’s teeth in order to achieve a desired result.

There is one treatment, however, that actually improves a patient’s smile by eliminating some dental enamel. Enamel contouring can:

· Make long teeth shorter and more proportionate

· Buff away minor surface irregularities

· Improve the way that your bite comes together

· Prepare your teeth for further aesthetic treatment—like dental veneers

This treatment is simple and comfortable for the patient to undergo. In just one appointment our Las Vegas dentist can refine your smile with precision using dental contouring.

Here are some questions that we commonly receive about this treatment.

Q: Is dental contouring painful?

A: No, your dental enamel does not have nerve endings, so you will not feel pain as we shape your teeth. You may be able to feel a buzzing sensation as the dental file passes over your enamel.

Q: Are the results permanent?

A: Yes, your dental enamel does not have the capability of growing back. Once your enamel is minimized your tooth will stay that shape and size.

Q: How expensive is dental contouring?

A: This treatment is very affordable, and it is one of the most cost-effective ways you can change the aesthetics of your smile. We’ll be able to give you more exact price after we assess your teeth at your dental consultation.

There are so many things that we can do in order to improve the appearance of your smile. When you are ready to learn more about enamel contouring—or any of the other aesthetic treatments that we offer—please feel free to reach out to our Las Vegas dentist office. We are here for you!
