Transform Your Teeth in a Targeted Way

Dental contouring is one of the least invasive and simplest cosmetic services we offer. By taking away just a bit of enamel, you’ll have teeth that complement the rest of your smile. This treatment can:

  • Minimize the size of too-large teeth
  • Smooth out pointy or misshapen tooth edges
  • Reshape worn-down teeth

The first step in this process is an examination of your smile. We can assess the health of your teeth and determine if contouring may be a good option for you. You can also combine contouring with other services, such as teeth whitening, as part of a smile makeover.

Reveal a New Smile With Crown Lengthening

While contouring is great for correcting issues with large teeth, crown lengthening is a good option when teeth look small compared to the rest of your smile. Lengthening involves removing a small amount of gum tissue in targeted areas to reveal more of your teeth. It’s often done to prepare your smile for veneers or crowns.

We do this procedure with a dental laser that will:

  • Be completely painless
  • Minimize your healing time
  • Reduce your risk for post-operative infection

It’s understandable if you have some anxiety. That’s why we use a local anesthetic to numb the area of the procedure and can offer sedation options as well. Rest assured, you won’t feel anything during your appointment.

Common Questions About Teeth Contouring/Crown Lengthening

What is teeth contouring?

For teeth contouring treatment, your dentist will use specialized instruments to shape and even out your rough or pointy tooth edges. We’ll remove just a small amount of tooth enamel to give you a more appealing smile line. In just one appointment, you can see a noticeable difference in the aesthetic appeal of your teeth and the impact they make on your smile.

What is crown lengthening?

Sometimes crown lengthening, which involves modifying gum tissue to expose more of the white part of your teeth, is strictly for aesthetics. However, it can also make it easier to receive a restoration like a crown or a veneer. In addition, it may be necessary if you have dental decay below your gums. Dr. Schope will adjust your gum tissue to get to the decay.

Is teeth contouring safe?

Yes, teeth contouring is very safe. Dr. Schope will study digital X-rays of your teeth before working on them to know exactly how much tooth enamel can be taken off. Only a small amount of enamel will be removed to make your teeth look their best. When we’re done, your smile will be more uniform, and you’ll have more confidence.
