Teeth contouring and crown lengthening is another big part of our practice where teeth contouring can change just the aesthetics or the illusion of what is perceived in someone's mouth, so just simple re-contouring of surfaces can allow patients to have a more copacetic smile and comfortable smile for themselves.
Crown lengthening is a little bit different, which is a procedure that we use with our laser in-office or a surgical procedure where we'll extend more of the tooth for proper restoration of the tooth and proper aesthetics, so we'll expose more of the tooth structure so that we can align the patient with what they want for a smile results.
What Is Teeth Contouring?
Teeth contouring is where trusted Wellesley, MA dentist Dr. Tocci augments the shape of your tooth so that it blends completely with the rest of your smile. A smile is like a painting – no one part should stick out from the rest. By carefully removing or shaving down the enamel in certain areas of the tooth, we can make sure that your smile comes together and forms a true masterpiece.
What Is Crown Lengthening?
An ideal smile should have a certain amount of tooth showing above the gumline, but that doesn’t always happen. Sometimes, a tooth may look too short. A crown lengthening procedure from top Wellesley, MA dentist Dr. Tocci will adjust your gumline so that more of your natural tooth – the white crown – is exposed. This also aids in future restorative dentistry treatments you might need in that area.
