Plano, TX cosmetic dentist restores smiles

One of the most common aesthetic dental concerns is also one of the easiest and simplest treatments available. A chip in a front tooth, worn uneven edges, shallow pits or grooves in the tooth enamel are all minor issues, and easily resolved with aesthetic tooth contouring. If minor cosmetic imperfections are making you hesitate to smile, then cosmetic contouring may be right for you!

Contouring Benefits

  • Contouring provides you with instantaneous results!
  • The procedure is quick and is often completed in one short appointment.
  • The procedure is painless since your enamel does not have any nerves.
  • It is permanent! Enamel does not grow back, so no maintenance is required.

Contouring Procedure

Using a polishing instrument, Dr. Beougher is able to shape small amounts of tooth enamel to improve the shape and aesthetics of your teeth. This quick and painless procedure can make a big difference in your smile. Because it is relatively inexpensive and noninvasive, it is a good place to start changing your smile to the one that you have always wanted. Minor bite problems can also be resolved with contouring and reshaping.

Is Contouring Right For You?

An ideal candidate for aesthetic tooth contouring would have minor imperfections in their teeth such as small chips, slight unevenness, slight overlaps, shallowly pitted surfaces, or worn biting areas in their teeth. Other indications for the procedure are one or more teeth out of proportion in size to the rest of the set, such as large, pointy canine teeth. Reshaping can only occur on healthy teeth, so x-rays are often taken before the procedure is done to check for problems.
