Enamel shaping or contouring is used to improve the appearance of a tooth. Dr. Stephen R. Hooper and Dr. Christopher Hooper may recommend tooth contouring to correct minor tooth overlapping, to smooth out rough edges, or to improve the surface of a tooth that is uneven. We can also use enamel shaping to make small adjustments in the shape of a tooth if a tooth is misshapen or appears too long or too pointed. For more information on enamel shaping and contouring in Bossier City, Louisiana, and to make your appointment with our dentists, call Hooper Family Dentistry today at 318-742-2272!
During the tooth contouring process, our experienced dentists remove a small amount of tooth enamel to make cosmetic improvements to your smile. The enamel is the outer protective layer of the tooth; this layer has no feeling, so the enamel shaping process is comfortable and painless. In most circumstances, we can complete tooth contouring in just one short visit to our dental office. We may suggest combining enamel shaping with dental bonding in some cases to further enhance your smile by correcting cosmetic dental flaws.
