How Contouring Treatments Improve Smiles

When you think about the role cosmetic dentistry can play in helping someone feel better about how they look, what kind of care do you envision? There are several approaches that our Katy, TX dentist’s office can take when we work to restore a person’s smile, or to make improvements by addressing naturally occurring flaws. One option we offer involves carefully contouring your teeth and/or gums to make desirable changes. By providing tooth bonding and contouring services in one appointment, we can take on potentially frustrating flaws with tooth shape and size without the need to cap teeth with restorations. A gum contouring procedure helps us give teeth more length. This service also makes it possible for us to even out tissues that look bumpy or uneven.

How A Careful Contouring Procedure Can Affect The Way You Look

Contouring is a process that can deliver big improvements while only making conservative changes to your teeth and gums. Before moving forward with any procedure, we will carefully evaluate your smile to see how changes might affect you. We will also speak with you about how you hope to look when work is finished. We may recommend tooth bonding and contouring to change the shape, size, and color of teeth that currently stand out for negative reasons. A gum contouring treatment is often recommended for those who have teeth that look squat or short because of excess periodontal tissues, or in order to even out gums that look uneven or bumpy.

Arranging A Tooth Bonding And Contouring Procedure

Tooth bonding and contouring work can change your smile to make it more symmetrical, and to free you from any conspicuous flaws that make you unhappy with your appearance. Because there is not a need to restore teeth with crowns or veneers when we proceed with this treatment option, we can limit changes to your enamel. The contouring process helps by reducing the size of teeth that look too large, or that appear uneven. By performing tooth bonding services, we can add to undersized teeth, cover damages or gaps, and even positively change your tooth color.

Discussing Gum Contouring Treatment

We can recommend gum contouring treatment to a patient who expresses concern over the appearance of teeth that seem too short or squat. Carefully trimming and reshaping your gums can also help by correcting imbalances, and by smoothing out bumpy or bulky areas.
