Cosmetic contouring is a procedure we specialize in at CITIDental El Cajon. It’s just a fancy term us dentists use to refer to tooth reshaping. If a minor cosmetic issue makes you apprehensive of showing off your smile, then cosmetic contouring may just be right for you. We can fix minor imperfections that have been holding you back. Having a great smile that you’re not afraid to show can certainly open new doors for you, and we’d like to facilitate the process as quickly and as painless as possible.

The Cosmetic Contouring Procedure

We utilize enameloplasty to remove small amounts of tooth enamel to change the tooth’s surface, changing the length, the shape, whatever is necessary. The procedure can successfully treat chipped teeth, slight tooth irregularity, and overly long canine teeth (or “fangs”). After we’ve successfully contoured your teeth, we’ll give them a nice polish and off you go. Enjoy your new look!

Cosmetic Contouring Benefits

  • Quick treatment times, often in a half hour or less!
  • Only a short appointment necessary; you can get it done during your lunch hour.
  • The entire process is pain free
  • Enjoy permanent, lasting results

Really, the only disadvantage of the procedure is that only minor imperfections can be corrected, due to the capacity of the thickness of your tooth enamel. Teeth that are crooked or misshapen will need to be addressed with an alternate procedure available at CITIDental El Cajon. If more aggressive treatment is needed to get the results you want, we’re here to discuss your options and determine the best route to give you the smile you’ve always envisioned for yourself.

Often, cosmetic contouring provides a catalyst for future oral health care. It’s a great idea to stay on top of your home routine and keep your two annual visits with us to make sure that you never experience complications like tooth sensitivity.

Cosmetic Contouring Cost

Cost will vary from person to person, so we never charge across-the-board prices. We provide economical, budget-friendly oral health and cosmetic dental procedures. During your initial consultation we’ll discuss all of your options and determine price of treatment.
