fix misshapen teeth for a greater smile
Tooth reshaping removes parts of the enamel in order to improve the appearance of the tooth. This procedure is referred to as enameloplasty and it consists of contouring, recontouring, slenderizing, stripping or sculpting the enamel layer of a tooth. It may be used to correct a small chip, or to alter the length, shape or position of teeth.
The removed enamel is irreplaceable, and may lead to exposed dentin if done too aggressively. This can lead to sensitivity. Thus, it is important to have us evaluate your dentition to determine just how much enameloplasty would be needed and how safe and effective it would be for you. The procedure is done in one quick office visit and offers fast results that can replace the need for more involved procedures.
Reshaping and then bonding an offending tooth is an excellent cosmetic option. We are cosmetic dentistry specialists who, along with you, will choose the best option for your individual wants and needs. Call us today at (414) 932-0282 with any questions, and to schedule your appointment.
