Do you wish you could improve a tooth that is stubbornly misshapen or unattractive? We invite you to consider receiving a tooth contouring treatment to help you achieve the beautiful smile you want. In order to receive tooth contouring, you will need to work with our dentist to ensure that you meet the dental health requirements.
One of the requirements is having tooth enamel that is thick enough so that our dentist can safely remove a few millimeters of tooth enamel during the procedure without weakening the tooth. To assess the thickness of tooth enamel, our team will produce a few dental X-rays, and if it’s revealed that your enamel is too thin, Dr. [docotr_name] may recommend that you receive a dental veneer or dental crown instead to improve the tooth.
It is also very important that you have healthy gums and teeth so that your smile isn’t susceptible to certain dental issues that could weaken the tooth. For example, if you struggle with gum disease, it may have weakened your bone structure to the point that it and your tooth aren’t strong enough to receive cosmetic dental treatment. If your smile is plagued by an unhealthy tooth or unhealthy gums, you may benefit more from a different treatment aside from tooth contouring.
