Teeth contouring in South East London can markedly improve smiles

01 / 05 / 2012

Tooth contouring is a simple and safe means of improving the look of the smile. Tooth contouring involves removing very tiny pieces of surface enamel to smooth the teeth, fill in chips and surface pits and create a more balanced, attractive smile.

Tooth contouring is beneficial for people who are worried about flaws in their teeth and if you find yourself constantly focusing on a chip or an uneven edge, for example, this treatment may be an ideal solution.

What are the benefits of tooth contouring?

Tooth contouring is a straight-forward, safe and effective treatment, which can be used to address small flaws in the smile. Tooth contouring is effective for patients who have small chips, uneven tooth surfaces, pits in the tooth surfaces and worn teeth. The procedure is relatively simple, but it can make a massive difference to a patient’s smile, as well as their confidence and self-esteem. In addition to aesthetic benefits, tooth contouring can also have positive implications for oral health, as the teeth are often easier to clean once they have been smoothed and pits have been filled in.

What does the procedure involve?

Tooth contouring involves removing surface enamel and shaping the teeth to create a more even, attractive smile. Your dentist will smooth out rough and worn edges, fill in chips and re-shape uneven teeth to produce a better aesthetic. The length of the procedure depends on the amount of work being done, but in most cases, treatment is complete within the hour. Dentists usually take a ‘before’ photograph so you can point out the flaws you want to address and see the difference in the ‘after’ shot. If you want to find out more about tooth contouring in South East London, ask your dentist.
