ENAMEL RESHAPING

Enamel reshaping can give your teeth a natural beautifull appearance

     This is a process of contouring natural teeth to improve their over all appearances.  Enamel reshaping can help the appearance of:

bulletSlightly crowded teeth
bulletUneven teeth
bulletEyeteeth that appear too long.
bulletCorrect a flaw

    Enamel reshaping involves modifying teeth by removing or contouring enamel to create a balance in the mouth. It is often used with bonding. This is a more conservation process that can not solve crowded teeth that need braces.  

    This process is quick and painless.  No anesthesia is necessary and the results are immediate.

Daily care of your teeth  and gums will keep them healthy

     Home Care:

  1. There may be some sensitivity to hot and cold occasionally that may last several weeks.  Try using a toothpaste for sensitive teeth that contains potassium nitrate.
  2. The surface may feel "rougher", so staining may occur from tea, coffee or tobacco use.
  3. Brush twice a day with a soft toothbrush for at least two minutes.
  4. Floss once a day, especially in this area.
  5. See your dentist every 6 months for professional cleanings to keep these teeth healthy and attractive.
