Beautify Your Smile With Our Cosmetic Expertise

Damaged teeth or an unbalanced smile can draw unwanted attention to itself. Rather than others seeing a beautiful, natural-looking smile, they instead end up noticing all of its flaws.

Teeth contouring is one technique we use to repair rough tooth edges, smoothing them out and giving your teeth a more even appearance. We’ll begin by taking X-rays for a detailed look at your teeth, including their inner structure.

Then, using special dental tools and a skilled touch, Dr. Dickson will gently shape any teeth that are chipped, broken, misshapen, or too long compared to your other teeth. After your teeth are uniform in appearance and shape, we’ll polish them to complete your gorgeous smile.

If your teeth appear too short, or too much of your gums show when smiling, crown lengthening can balance your smile and make it more aesthetically pleasing. Using a low-power laser, Dr. Dickson will remove excess gum tissue and carefully shape your gumline.

This procedure is pain-free and doesn’t require any cutting or stitching. If you’re suffering from a “gummy smile,” then crown lengthening will take the focus off your gums and allow your teeth to take the spotlight instead.

Once your teeth are smooth, even, and balanced with your gums, you may want to consider teeth whitening treatment for even further smile enhancement. You can choose fast treatment in our office using the Zoom system, or take custom trays home to whiten your teeth whenever you want. Many patients opt for both choices to maximize their whitening results.

Enhance your smile with teeth contouring and crown lengthening in Plano. Call us today to set up your appointment.

Who Is A Candidate For Contouring And Crown Lengthening?

Teeth contouring and crown lengthening are cosmetic treatments that can be used to correct a number of minor imperfections that make you feel self-conscious about your smile. Dr. Dickson will thoroughly examine your teeth and gums before recommending which treatment or combination of procedures is right for your needs. Patients with issues like gum disease or tooth decay should first seek treatment for these underlying conditions before considering cosmetic dentistry.

Teeth Contouring And Crown Lengthening FAQ

Do teeth contouring and crown lengthening hurt?

No, neither procedure is painful. During a teeth contouring procedure, Dr. Dickson only removes a small amount of surface enamel — so it doesn’t hurt at all. For crown lengthening, you’ll be given a local anesthetic to numb the treatment area so you’ll be comfortable during the entire procedure.

Is teeth contouring bad for your teeth?

Teeth contouring does remove a small amount of enamel from your teeth. For some people, this may cause tooth sensitivity, but by practicing proper oral hygiene, this risk can be minimized.

How long do teeth contouring and crown lengthening take?

Most teeth contouring and crown lengthening procedures only take about 30 – 60 minutes.

Does teeth contouring look natural?

Yes, it does. Dr. Dickson will reshape your teeth to not only look more even, but they’ll also look beautifully improved with a natural appearance.
