Increase Your Confidence With Enameloplasty

People with less than perfect teeth are often self-conscious about their smile. Luckily, cosmetic dentistry can help change the look of your teeth to improve your smile as well as increase your confidence. At Prosthodontics of Princeton, we understand that everyone has different concerns about their teeth, and we work hard to make sure everyone leaves happy and satisfied with the work that we do.

Enameloplasty for Appearance

Enameloplasty, or tooth contouring, is a treatment option in which part of an existing tooth’s surface is removed in order to change its shape and size. Enameloplasty is a good option for those who have teeth that are fractured, worn, or chipped, which can result from biting on fragile surfaces or teeth grinding. Enameloplasty on its own, by reshaping the contours of the teeth, can improve the appearance of your smile. The procedure can also be used as preparation for further treatment.

Tooth Contouring for Further Treatment

Often times, teeth are contoured in order to prepare them for another cosmetic treatment. Your tooth may be reshaped in order to fit a filling or a crown if your tooth is decayed, if it is cracked, or if the root is at risk.

To create a beautiful smile, a reconstructive dentist may choose to apply veneers. These porcelain laminates require only a small amount of tooth reshaping. The thin shells of veneers are designed to match the color of your teeth and are stain resistant. Veneers can be used to improve somewhat crooked, worn, or chipped teeth, and they can also close spaces between your teeth.
