Have you become somewhat smitten with the benefits of dental contouring? Are you feeling pretty certain that this treatment will help you arrive at the beautified smile you have been hoping to achieve? If so, you may hope you make a good candidate but feel a little bit worried that you will discover the opposite is true. For a quick determination regarding whether contouring will work for you, consider some helpful information. Of course, we also suggest that you contact us to schedule a cosmetic consultation.
About Treatment Times
Maybe you are worried that dental contouring will take up too much of your time, even though it sounds like what you’re looking for. Good news – it’s a very convenient treatment. We generally instruct patients to schedule one appointment with us (an appointment that typically gives us sufficient time to complete the treatment). How long is treatment time? Usually, just one hour. (Keep in mind, if you require contouring for multiple teeth, the treatment time may increase).
About Your Cosmetic Goals
Why are you seeking dental contouring? If it’s because you need help clearing up an esthetic issue with the gentle removal of tooth tissue, you’re seeking the correct treatment. Contouring addresses problems with tooth shape, teeth that are too long, sharp teeth, jagged teeth, and more. However, if you need more tissue, you are actually searching for dental bonding.
About Your Enamel
Dental contouring will work for you if you have enough enamel for us to remove a bit without compromising the health and the structure of your tooth – this is typically not an issue. To ensure, however, that your enamel is thick enough, we may take digital X-rays.
