Why choose aesthetic tooth smoothing

Not everyone is blessed with perfectly straight and evenly shaped teeth. For people who want to get a winning smile and confidence boost, aesthetic re-contouring is an effective and simple procedure to get your teeth into shape. Whether your concern is a crooked smile, a few cracked crowns or a tooth that slightly overlaps with its neighbor, your dentist can fix the problem. Even people who suffer from a slightly misaligned bite can benefit from aesthetic contouring.

Tooth reshaping and contouring is done by using filing and polishing instruments to enhance the appearance of your teeth. Small amounts of the surface enamel is smoothed away to create a more consistent look and to compensate for the imperfections. The procedure is aimed at giving you a better aligned set of teeth that is more attractive, uniformly-shaped and easier to clean.

Your dentist might want to take a photograph of your teeth before the procedure to serve as a reference as he works on the problem areas. A similar process is done after the procedure so that you can compare the changes. The entire process can last from 30 minutes to more than an hour, depending on the number of teeth that have to be fixed.

At Dental Care of Nixa, we guarantee you an instantly better smile and fully-functional set of teeth after re-contouring. This essentially cosmetic procedure is quickly becoming popular among patients who want to correct minor aesthetic imperfections easily. No pain is involved in the process because only the outermost surface of the tooth is filed away to give you instantly better-looking teeth.
