Dental Contouring: A Few Ways It Helps

You probably have a good idea about what dental contouring can do for your smile if you’re considering coming in to receive this treatment. However, you might feel like though you know it’s something that can remove a little tissue here and there, you’re short on specifics. What are some ways it can help you with your smile? Your life? Is it just here to shorten a long tooth? Rest easy! We are happy to explain a few ways it helps you beyond the detail of its primary function.

#1: It Helps Your Smile Look More Grown Up

First of all, you might not realize that you can come to us for dental contouring because of mamelons. What are those, you wonder? They’re the little bumps on your teeth that typically go away once you get out of your childhood and teen years. However, sometimes they stay, leaving you feeling like your smile looks much younger. With a brief contouring session, we can smooth those bumps away, so your smile looks like it fits your age.

#2: It Helps Protect Your Soft Tissues

Sometimes, you are less worried about the way your smile looks and more concerned with the way a problematic tooth is affecting your comfort. When a tooth is jagged or extremely pointy, it can end up stabbing your soft tissue. Your tongue might even get caught on it sometimes! We will smooth rough or sharp areas down with dental contouring, so this is no longer a problem.

#3: It Helps You Make Little Changes On A Budget

Dental contouring can help you make the little changes you need (which, as you might imagine, can help your smile look much better), all without damaging your budget.
