Our experienced dentists at Silver Firs Dental in Mill Creek, Washington, have lined up the five most important things you need to know about the cosmetic contouring procedure. Keep reading to learn more about it. 

What Is Cosmetic Contouring?

Cosmetic contouring basically involves reshaping your teeth to improve their appearance. The main aim of the procedure is to change the size and length of your teeth and improve your overall look.

The Cosmetic Contouring Procedure 

Before beginning the procedure, our dentists at Silver Firs Dental will carefully check the existing structure of your teeth and mark the areas that need improvement. 

During the procedure, our dentists will slowly remove some of the enamel on your teeth to improve their structure. To do this, they use a specialized drill or a laser until the desired shape and length are achieved. 

After this, our dentists will polish the teeth and usually follow up the procedure with dental bonding to fill in any cracks or chips and improve the shape of your teeth. 

Dental contouring is a simple and painless process that makes it possible for you to get a perfect smile in a single dental visit.

Benefits of Cosmetic Contouring 

The benefits of cosmetic contouring are:

  • It helps improve your smile and appearance by correcting the shape and size of your teeth.
  • It helps fix cracked, chipped, crooked, or teeth that are improperly aligned.
  • It helps correct damage caused by bruxism (grinding your teeth).
  • It helps improve dental hygiene by making it easier to clean the areas between your teeth.
  • It boosts your self-esteem by giving you perfect teeth and a perfect smile.

Cosmetic Contouring Aftercare 

Proper aftercare is essential for best results. 

After getting cosmetic contouring, you should avoid putting unnecessary strain on your teeth (like eating hard foods or biting your nails). You should also maintain proper oral hygiene by brushing your teeth twice a day to prevent staining and plaque deposits. 

Reasons to Choose Cosmetic Contouring 

Cosmetic contouring is designed to fix minor aesthetic tooth-related problems like misshapen or overly long teeth. 

Cosmetic contouring is a quick and simple procedure that helps ensure your teeth look their best and also protects your overall dental health.
