There is no better way to greet the world than with a perfect smile that really shows off your pearly whites. Of course, the best smiles typically have perfect teeth, many people in this area find themselves considering cosmetic teeth contouring to achieve a perfect smile. Read below to learn about the contouring process from Dr. Kacel, your Northbrook Dentist.
Patients with slight imperfections or damage to their teeth often ask their dentist in Northbrook, IL about teeth contouring. Also occasionally referred to as teeth reshaping, cosmetic contouring makes subtle changes to the teeth that can make a noticeable overall difference in your smile. If you have overlapping teeth, overly-pointy teeth,or slight chips in your teeth, these can be fixed by some cosmetic contouring.
When you schedule a visit to Dr. Kacel’s Northbrook dental office for cosmetic contouring you are setting an appointment to have tiny amounts of tooth enamel removed so that the shape, surface, or length of the tooth can be changed. Sometimes all it takes is the removal of just a small amount in the right place to make a drastic difference in a tooth’s appearance. The process is simple and quick and before long you will have the smile of your dreams without braces.
A practitioner of cosmetic dentistry will often combine bonding with the practice of contouring. Bonding uses composite materials that are the same color as teeth to further shape and sculpt the teeth. Once the process is complete you’ll have a bright new smile that’s bound to impress. Both contouring and bonding are deemed completely safe by the American Dental Association.
Cosmetic contouring is a simple process that is long-lasting and has you feeling great afterwards. If you are looking for an easy way to perfect your smile and do away with any problems you feel may be taking away from your smile, cosmetic contouring is for you. Visit your dentist to discuss the options available to you.
