Cosmetic Contouring Helps Improve the Shape of Teeth or Gums.
Castillo and Mulkay Dental offers highly effective cosmetic contouring treatments to improve the shape of teeth and gums. If you are not happy with the appearance of your teeth, gums or smile and are looking for a solution, you should consider a trip to one of our dental clinics in North Bergen or Passaic!
Cosmetic contouring is the changing of the shape of teeth or gums in order to improve their appearance. This is done by removing a small amount of tooth enamel to evenly match it with the remaining teeth. The gumline can be also be modified to for a more uniform appearance.
If you have healthy teeth but are unhappy because of their crowded or chipped appearance, or you are looking for a small adjustment to the shape or size of a tooth, cosmetic contouring may be the solution for you. Cosmetic contouring helps reduce the length of “eye teeth” and create a softer, more pleasant appearance. It is a quick and easy procedure that can be completed in a single appointment.
Cosmetic contouring is commonly used in combination with bonding or veneers. It can be successfully used to perfect an almost-perfect smile. We recommend its use for making minor changes to your teeth’s enamel or gumline.
During the consultation, we will discuss the minor changes you wish to make to your appearance and how best to achieve the results. Your dentist will take an X-Ray of of your mouth and mark the areas that require contouring to serve as a guide during the procedure. You dentist may use a variety of instruments to reshape and perfect your teeth, such as low-impact hand pieces like sanding tools or lasers. Generally speaking, there is no need to numb the area with anesthesia. After shaping, your teeth will be smoothed, polished and perfected. However, if procedures such as bonding or veneers have been combined with tooth contouring, the procedure may require several visits.
