Reshaping and Contouring in Just One Visit by Advanced Dentistry of Blakeney By Dr. Pinnix on December 03, 2012

The advancements in dentistry have reshaped the industry in terms of new technology that allows one visit procedures instead of multiple visits. Cosmetic dentists are now able to provide the movie star smiles that everyone longs for. At our Blakeney dental office, reshaping and contouring is a simple, yet effective means of enhancing the look of the patient's teeth, and at an affordable price.

For experienced dentists in Charlotte such as Dr. Betancourt and Dr. Pinnix, they are able to correct the length, position of the teeth or reshape them to hide small imperfections such as chipped or jagged edges during single visits. Good cosmetic dentists are even able to correct overlapping teeth and teeth that are crooked.

Dental contouring and tooth reshaping is a procedure that requires very small and subtle changes by removing some portion of a tooth, without any discomfort to the patient, and adding back a small amount of tooth-colored laminate to create a winning smile.

Cosmetic dentists must first make sure the patient has normal, healthy teeth and gums that are free of gingivitis, cavities or deep cracks.

The process for tooth contouring and reshaping is accomplished by first doing x-rays to determine where the pulp is in each tooth to prevent damage to that portion of the tooth. The dentist then marks the teeth for sculpting. They begin to lightly sand or use a laser to remove very small amounts of enamel. The teeth are then smoothed and polished.

Dental veneers are sometimes used along with the contouring and reshaping if more correction is needed.

Potential patients in Charlotte should research local cosmetic dentists and make a consultation appointment to meet with a couple of them to decide on the best one with the most experience and shows a high degree of artisanship in their work.
