Wisconsin Cosmetic Dentist for Aesthetic Teeth Contouring

Tooth reshaping is a cosmetic treatment option where the size and shape of your existing tooth's enamel are removed to reshape the tooth and improve its appearance. TCD has years of experience providing aesthetic tooth contouring for those who want to change the size, shape and length of their teeth.

How Does Dental Contouring Work?Smile Before and After Dental Contouring

Aesthetic contouring involves redefining both the teeth and gums to more pleasing shapes and levels. Excellent teeth reshaping is done by removing millimeters of surface enamel on your teeth. These subtle changes result in teeth being shaped the way you want.

Tooth contouring is painlessly performed with an ultra-fine diamond-impregnated bur and disc polishing instrument, while a diode soft tissue laser is used to perform gum contouring. We may use dental X-rays to determine exactly how much enamel is present and highlight the areas to makeover.

Straighten Uneven Teeth and Gum Lines

Aesthetic tooth and gum contouring is a quick, simple and conservative way to enhance your smile. The procedure can be performed on a single tooth or numerous teeth. It's great for people who have slightly uneven edges, are unhappy with the shape of their teeth or have asymmetrical gum levels. You may dislike your smile now, but we will completely transform it and have you beaming from ear to ear.

Many people feel nervous before dental procedures, but our Madison cosmetic dentists make the process fast, pain-free and rewarding. We will walk you through the steps before and during the procedure so you always know what is happening. Aesthetic contouring is a simple procedure that can be performed in a single appointment, either independently or as part of a complete smile makeover after Invisalign treatment.


Painless Aesthetic Contouring in Just One Dental AppointmentContoured Teeth

No anesthetic is needed for tooth contouring. Laser gum contouring typically requires only a strong topical anesthetic. The end result is instantly even teeth, balanced gum lines and a more attractive smile. Our Madison dentists recommend opting for teeth whitening or porcelain veneers if you’re looking for a more drastic change. Don’t stress about your teeth any longer, fix that tooth (or teeth) you’ve been meaning to restore.

This low-cost procedure is easily affordable and may even be covered by dental insurance. We even offer dental financing plans to help our patients get the treatment they want.

What Are the Risks of Enameloplasty?

Compared to other dental procedures, contouring is very subtle in terms of results. Enamel doesn’t grow back, so removing it means it is gone for good. Removing too much could weaken the tooth or cause sensitivity over time.

Before receiving contouring, our dentists will examine your mouth and use X-rays to ensure your teeth and gums are healthy enough for this procedure. You might need some restorative work done before contouring can begin.

Post-Contouring Care

After teeth filing, you won’t have as much enamel on your teeth. You’ll need to be extra diligent about preventative dental care to keep your teeth healthy. You might need to switch to a softer toothbrush when brushing to reduce damage to your enamel.
