What is Tooth Enamel Shaping?
Enamel shaping, also referred to as re-contouring, involves reshaping your tooth’s natural enamel for a more uniform appearance. During this procedure, we’ll physically alter the enamel of your teeth to correct whatever minor cosmetic issues your teeth may have by changing the shape, length, or surface of a tooth.
Tooth enamel shaping can fix many issues, including:
- Round off squared or pointed teeth
- Shorten teeth that are too long
- Create a more uniform appearance
- Repair chips
- Fix minor overcrowding
How Does Enamel Shaping Work?
Before conducting tooth enamel shaping, we’ll perform a thorough dental exam to make sure this is the best treatment option for you. In some cases, our patients might alternative cosmetic dentistry procedures if the issue they’re looking to fix is more prevalent than minor flaws.
When you visit for your tooth enamel shaping appointment, we’ll reshape and polish your teeth, removing whatever imperfections you’re looking to fix. Depending on what we’re fixing, such as shortening your teeth or polishing out a chip, we might use different tools to re-shape your enamel.
Because we’re only working with your enamel, the entire procedure is completely painless! Nothing we do goes deep enough to affect the nerves of your teeth.
Is Enamel Shaping Safe?
While you might feel a bit weird about having your natural tooth enamel shaved or sanded down, we promise it’s perfectly safe. Dr. Zicchino only removes small layers of enamel, so it shouldn’t have any kind of drastic effect on your teeth. You might notice a bit more sensitivity, but you usually won’t notice any difference at all!
If you’re looking for a more dramatic change to your smile than what tooth enamel shaping can provide, porcelain veneers might be the better treatment option for you.
