A Straighter Smile Without Braces: The Benefits of Cosmetic Contouring

Last updated 7 years ago

Our teeth are precious. Unfortunately, there are a lot of factors that negatively affect both the appearance and function of our pearly (or not-so-pearly) whites. Whether you were born with a crooked smile, received an injury that resulted in a chipped tooth, or have a condition that wears your enamel away, if your smile is flawed, it can have a huge impact on your self-esteem. Braces aren’t such a great choice for everyone, especially for adults who may want a little more discretion. Luckily, cosmetic contouring offers a way to get a straighter smile without the wires, and your dentist knows all about it.

These days, people are flocking to their cosmetic dentists everywhere, from New York City to Los Angeles, asking about cosmetic tooth contouring. This procedure has been gaining popularity because of its simplicity and lack of downtime. Dentists use a laser or sanding bit as a tool to sculpt and reshape teeth by removing various amounts of enamel. After this, they polish all of the teeth they worked on, as well as the surrounding teeth. Dentists can also add a laminate to teeth to create a more proportional look.

Cosmetic tooth contouring offers patients a variety of benefits, including:

  •  No pain during or after the procedure, unlike other cosmetic dentistry procedures.
  • Little time spent in the dentist’s office, meaning you’ll be able to get back to your live with your beautiful new smile.
  • Straightening a crooked smile quickly and without braces, so you don’t have to worry about a mouthful of metal.
  • Improving the look of cracked or chipped teeth, repairing damage from an injury or other traumatic event.
