Tooth Contouring Will Give Your Smile a Boost
I find that people that aren’t happy with their smile, they don’t necessarily know what’s wrong. They’re looking for me for guidance as to what I identify and what can be corrected. For some people, if the teeth just need to be reshaped, that’s something that’s easy to do in one or two appointments. You first make impressions, and we use digital impressions, but then I can shape them on the model and then show you the result that we would get.
We also use photographs for that. For some people, though, if they have broken teeth where there’s not much tooth above the gum, we have to do something that’s called crown lengthening. It’s kind of a weird term, but what it does is it exposes more tooth so that I can put a crown on the tooth that will stay on there for a long time. I expose more of the tooth so that the crown has something to hold onto.
