Enamel Contouring & Tooth Reshaping
NYC Cosmetic Dentists Serving Manhattan and New York, NY
A beautiful smile can be created by using many techniques, depending on what you'd like to see improved. One of the most effective, and least time-consuming, treatments you can benefit from is teeth recontouring.
If your teeth are not symmetrical, are overlapped, or have visible cracks and chips, we can reshape (recontour) them in only one session in our office. In the right circumstances, it can produce results similar to those from wearing braces, but in much less time. Its subtle changes are cumulative, combining to produce the beautiful smile you hope for, with no pain or discomfort.
What Is Involved in Enamel Contouring?
A minimal amount of your tooth is actually involved in the contouring/reshaping that will produce the smile you desire. We are able to smooth out any chipped or cracked surfaces, and round (or square) your tooth’s geometry exactly as needed. In the course of treatment, we can also create improved alignment, along with a more feminine, or more masculine, expression. We adjust only the amount of tooth absolutely required.
Before beginning, we mark your teeth as a definitive guide for the contouring/reshaping process that will eliminate or reduce the imperfections. Working with an adjustment disc or laser, we gradually reshape minute amounts of your surface enamel. Then we finish off with smoothing and polishing discs and brushes. Because the treatment is painless, no anesthesia is needed.
"Dr Tabib and Dr Melo are both warm, sensitive practitioners. My dental issues had caused me pain and shyness all my life, and with them and their warm staff, I always felt accepted and cared for. I felt no pain during my treatments which was important to me, as my treatments with past practitioners had been traumatic. My results are gorgeous and well worth the investment. My thanks to NYC Smile Design for their wonderful care and sensitivities! They are the best! 100 stars!!!"
