The beauty of a smile is affected not only by how white they appear, but also by their shape and contours. A smile made up of perfectly white teeth may still look unattractive if even one of the teeth is badly misshapen, or if the appearance of this tooth (or several teeth) does not conform to the rest of the teeth seen in the smile. Damage on a single tooth may also mar the beauty of one’s smile.
Cosmetic dentistry problems such as cracked teeth, chipped teeth, or even decayed teeth can benefit from a tooth contouring procedure. This treatment aims to improve the appearance of a tooth (or a few teeth) that has been damaged, or is badly misshapen – so that the overall appearance of the smile looks more uniform, and more attractive.
Advantages of Tooth Contouring
Tooth contouring is especially beneficial for cases in which the affected tooth is located in the front of the mouth, or in a part of the mouth where the misshapen/damaged tooth can readily be seen. Tooth contouring will be done by the dentist alter the contours, appearance, or shape of a tooth to improve its appearance, and in some cases – to prevent dental problems from further progressing into something more serious (such as tooth decay, a cracked tooth, or a chipped tooth).
In some cases, better dental hygiene maintenance can also result from a tooth contouring procedure. A tooth which may previously be very hard to clean because of its shape can now be easily cleaned when its shape or contours are changed by the tooth contouring procedure. Improvements on the bite, as well as improvements on speech, can also result from the altered tooth appearance after a tooth contouring procedure.
