Teeth Contouring / Crown Lengthening

Dr. Craig Ellsworth on Teeth Contouring Read Transcript

There are several ways Dr. Craig Ellsworth can reshape your teeth in our Spokane Valley, WA dental office. Teeth contouring is a cosmetic dentistry option that is simple, pain-free, and relatively inexpensive. Using a high-tech laser and other dental tools, Dr. Craig Ellsworth gently removes small amounts of tooth enamel until your minor flaws vanish.

In addition, he can use a laser to painlessly remove small amounts of gum tissue so your teeth look longer. This process is called crown lengthening.

You can get the smile of your dreams in as little as a single visit to our Spokane Valley, WA dentist office! Call Family Dental of Spokane Valley, WA at 509-850-3217 to find out how teeth contouring or crown lengthening can transform your smile.

Teeth Contouring Benefits

Thanks to his expertise and advanced training with lasers, Spokane Valley, WA dentist Dr. Craig Ellsworth uses them for many dental procedures, including ones that make your smile more beautiful. Here are some of the benefits of teeth contouring you will enjoy:

  • Because tooth enamel has no nerve endings, you should experience no discomfort. This makes teeth contouring a particularly good option if you suffer from dental anxiety.
  • If imperfections are minor, teeth contouring may be a good alternative to more extensive treatments, such as dental veneers. You can start with this conservative approach and may decide later to pursue additional treatments.
  • Teeth contouring is one of the quickest dental procedures. Depending on the number of teeth, your treatment can be completed in under an hour during a single visit.
  • Teeth contouring can remove imperfections that make it easier for decay to happen. If one tooth overlaps another, for example, plaque can build up in this “hidden” area.

More About Crown Lengthening

Crown lengthening, in which excess gum tissue is removed to make your teeth appear longer, isn’t always done for cosmetic purposes. Dr. Ellsworth may also recommend crown lengthening before some restorative dentistry procedures. For instance, exposing more of your tooth surface through crown lengthening can make it easier to put a dental crown on a damaged tooth.

Thanks to Dr. Craig Ellsworth’s expertise with lasers, Family Dental of Spokane Valley is a great choice for teeth contouring and crown lengthening. Call 509-850-3217 or use our online form to visit our Spokane Valley, WA dentist office.
