Enameloplasty is a treatment more commonly referred to as tooth contouring or teeth reshaping. Tooth reshaping at Harley Street Smile Clinic involves making careful adjustments to your teeth to create more harmonious shapes and sizes and enhance your smile.
Teeth shaping is where we contour or file a tooth into a slightly better shape to make it look better. The tips of your teeth can often be a little out of shape, or one tooth may be a little longer than another. By filing the tip slightly, we can improve the appearance of your tooth, and in some cases – the whole look of your smile.
Canine teeth which are more pointed in shape can be rounded off or shortened. Uneven lower teeth can be filed along the tips to make them appear more level and ensure your eye is not drawn to their uneven heights. In short, there are so many adjustments that can be made to improve your smile through dental contouring.
Tooth contouring is also commonly used when the upper teeth have been veneered, and you want to improve the appearance of the lower teeth without having to veneer them. Often your lower teeth can be a little bit crooked and filing the tips of them along the biting edge can give the illusion of them being straighter. If you have had braces to straighten your teeth, once orthodontics treatment is complete, tooth contouring can often further enhance the end result, by making the tips of the teeth look more perfect in shape.
