Learn All About The Possibilities Of Dental Contouring From Our Abbotsford Dentist!

Tuesday, August 19, 2014 |

Did you know that sometimes, minor tweaks to a patient’s teeth can make all the difference to the overall appearance of the patient’s smile? One fast, convenient, and effective treatment that can improve aesthetics is dental contouring. In this blog post our Abbotsford cosmetic dentists are talking about what our dental team achieves with dental contouring treatments.

The purpose of all dental contouring treatments is to change the shape of some oral tissues to achieve a functional or cosmetic result. Here are some ways that our dental team uses this technique for our cosmetic patients:

1. Alter dental shapes

Using contouring technology, our dentist can actually change the shape of your dental enamel. This means that we can refine uneven dental edges, as well as buff away surface imperfections on your smile. Tooth contouring can also make large or over erupted teeth appear more appropriately sized for your smile.

2. Refine gum tissue

Laser gum contouring is capable of changing the shape and size of your visible gum tissue. So if you have gum tissue that hangs down over a tooth, or appears too thick, our dental team can reduce this tissue. This ultimately gives your smile a more balanced and polished appearance.

Both of these treatments are very fast and easy to complete. Plus, patients do not have to suffer through lengthy post-treatment healing periods when they choose dental contouring.

If you are interested in either of these treatments, our dental team will examine your smile to ensure that your smile is healthy enough to undergo cosmetic changes. If you are a strong candidate for oral contouring, these treatments can generally be completed in just one dental appointment.

Our Abbotsford dentist office would be happy to give you more information about how small changes can make a big difference to your smile. Please give us a call!
