Reshaping Your Smile

Posted .

Welcome to Madison Dental Spa! Here, we want to help you have the smile you’ve always dreamed of. To that end, we offer a full complement of cosmetic dental services and treatments. Some involve covering or removing stains, others filling gaps or straightening teeth. But what about when a tooth is irregularly shaped? One option is cosmetic tooth recontouring.

Although teeth have some fairly standard forms (molars, canines, etc) there is actually quite a bit of variation within those forms. They can differ in size, length, and shape, and position. For people who want a more uniform appearance, tooth recontouring can solve superficial issues with their teeth. Tooth recontouring can actually remove superfluous tooth material to standardize appearance.

During tooth recontouring, only parts of the outer enamel are removed. To start the procedure off, Dr. Moumen Almouzayn will take some digital dental x-rays to be sure that enough enamel is present to be able to proceed. Assuming there is enough and the tooth is healthy enough, he will carefully remove enamel in accordance with your cosmetic goals. Anesthesia is not necessary, because the sensitive inner portion of the tooth is not affected. Recontouring is also more affordable than many other cosmetic dental procedures. You can walk out of our office with a new, improved smile.

Tooth recontouring is just one option available to our patients looking for a better smile. To learn more about all of our treatments or schedule a consultation, please call our Madison, CT, office today.
