A beautiful smile is in reach for everyone, but it may need some help in being expressed. Enameloplasty, or enamel contouring, is one cosmetic dentistry treatment of procuring the perfect smile easily, quickly and painlessly. This simple procedure is used to repair minor problems with tooth shape and size.
Enamel contouring changes the look of teeth that are:
- Irregular in shape
- Mismatched in size
- Too long
- Too pointy
- Chipped or grooved
Not everyone with these minor issues is a candidate for enamel contouring. For those fortunate ones who are, this procedure provides you with a more aesthetically appealing smile in a short amount of time. Enamel contouring does not correct major issues; however, it is an efficient and effective procedure for small imperfections that may be a source of embarrassment for you.
The Prosthodontic Difference
Most dentists can perform procedures such as enamel contouring; however, prosthodontists such as those at Aesthetic and Implant Dentistry of Atlanta have specialized training in cosmetic dentistry procedures like enamel contouring. This specialized training uniquely equips the prosthodontist to perform cosmetic dentistry and produce superior results.
Their training in dental aesthetics provides them with an eye toward those tiny details that make the difference between a good outcome and a superior result. When performing enamel contouring, this difference can have a big impact on the quality of the resulting smile.
Your new attractive smile resulting from enamel contouring can increase your self-confidence when you smile. Enamel contouring also benefits your oral health by eliminating overlap or crevices where plaque and tartar can build up and cause dental problems.
In some cases, minor misalignment can be corrected with enamel contouring. This saves you the cost of getting braces. You won’t have to worry about wearing a retainer to keep teeth from shifting back out of place, and most of all, you won’t have to pay thousands of dollars for a straighter smile. Enamel contouring is permanent and only changes the shape of your teeth.
