Enamel Shaping

Our goal is to help all our patients smile with confidence. If you have teeth with uneven or sharp edges, Dr. Langellier may recommend enamel shaping. He may also recommend enamel shaping if you have a small chip in your tooth that we can round off.

Here’s what else you should know about enamel shaping.

What is Enamel Shaping?

Enamel shaping is a fast, comfortable procedure that yields immediate results. These minor changes to your teeth can improve the appearance of your smile in one appointment. Through enamel shaping, Dr. Langellier can ensure that your teeth have a uniform, more proportioned appearance.

Your tooth enamel doesn’t have any nerves. This means that you won’t experience any pain or discomfort during the procedure.

Candidates for Enamel Shaping

To learn if you’re a candidate for enamel shaping, you’ll need to schedule a consultation with our cosmetic dentist. Dr. Langellier would be more than happy to explain the pros and cons of different cosmetic treatments for your smile.

Enamel shaping is perfect for people who need a slight adjustment to the shape of their outer enamel. For some patients, Dr. Langellier may recommend enamel shaping to correct a minor bite issue. But this is more rare. In general, enamel shaping is primarily a cosmetic procedure.

If you’re looking for a more drastic change to your smile, you may be a better candidate for Lumineers® or dental bonding. Ultimately, you won’t know what procedure is best until you meet with Dr. Langellier.
