Redefine Your Smile With Dental Contouring
Contouring teeth is a quick dental procedure. In fact, your treatment could take less than an hour depending on how many teeth are involved. At our practice, Dr. Ellsworth uses a dental laser to take enamel off teeth that are:
- Too Long
Using a dental laser to remove hard tissue is sort of like a sculptor removing material to create a piece of art. If you are worried that this could hurt, know that enamel does not have nerve endings. That makes this process practically pain-free.
Contouring also can make it easier to get a dental crown. It can reduce the wear and tear on your teeth. It also can make it easier to clean plaque and bacteria so you can have a healthier smile, too.
Effectively & Easily Change Your Gumline With Crown Lengthening
Crown lengthening is a bit of misnomer. What we are really doing is removing uneven gum tissue to reveal more of your tooth, or crown. Again, using a dental laser makes this procedure easier on you. While this is a cosmetic treatment, you may receive this to prepare for restorative dentistry as well.
