Here at the office of Dr. Edy A. Guerra, we are proud to offer our patients cosmetic contouring.
Many people are not happy with their smiles. They may have cracked or broken teeth. There are also times when teeth overlap or are just not shaped correctly. Cosmetic contouring is a conservative method to improve a smile.
Cosmetic contouring is when a dentist contours and reshape your teeth so that they look normal and healthy. It is often a quick and relatively painless procedure. It is also less costly than many other dental procedures.
We will use a polishing instrument to remove small amounts of enamel so that we can reshape your teeth. Though this does not work for everyone, it works well for people who have uneven wear and whose teeth don’t line up correctly when they bite down. It can also be used when the front teeth overlap slightly and when the teeth rotate.
Cosmetic contouring is permanent because we change the way that your teeth naturally look. However, we can’t control any further damage from wear and tear on your teeth.
