Don’t just dream the perfect smile; get the perfect smile with cosmetic contouring in Weymouth, MA.

Many of us have little aesthetic issues with our teeth that keep us from getting the smiles we want. Luckily, patients of Weymouth, MA Cosmetic Contouring family dentist Dr. Harry Tatoian, Jr., can revive their smiles in conservative and inexpensive ways. If you are interested in making minor changes to the shape of your teeth, then find out if cosmetic contouring is right for you.

All About Cosmetic Contouring

Also referred to as dental reshaping, this cosmetic procedure involves removing minimal amounts of tooth enamel to change the size, shape or length of a tooth. This is most often performed on teeth that are excessively pointy (like canines), teeth that have small cracks or chips in them, and teeth that may be a bit longer than the rest.

Your Weymouth, MA dentist may also recommend cosmetic contouring to correct minor bite issues in which certain teeth have uneven contact with one another, causing unnecessary wear and tear. This procedure can serve as both an aesthetic and functional treatment.

Contouring Process

Your Weymouth family dentist will always perform a dental exam prior to your treatment to make sure cosmetic contouring will give you the results you want. During this treatment only trace amounts of enamel are removed from your tooth. Since enamel does not contain any nerves, the process is completely painless and won’t even require anesthesia. After enough enamel has been removed we will polish your tooth to give it a smooth sheen.

Getting cosmetic contouring in Weymouth, MA only takes about 30 minutes per tooth and you’ll get the results you want in just one visit. What makes this dental treatment ideal is that it can also be used in conjunction with other cosmetic options like teeth whitening and cosmetic bonding to reduce the appearance of stains and other imperfections.

If you want to find out more about cosmetic contouring and what it can do for your smile then it’s time to contact your Weymouth, MA family dentist today. Let us improve the look and health of your smile.
