The Quickest and Easiest Way to Even Teeth

Uneven teeth can dramatically impact the appearance of even the healthiest, best looking smiles. Thankfully there are some simple and effective ways to change all of that. In just a few short appointments you can transform uneven teeth into a straighter looking smile that you feel confident in.

Tooth Recontouring and Bonding

Are your teeth themselves actually uneven? Some of us may have teeth that are shorter than others, worn edges or even chipped enamel. Tooth recontouring typically uses methods to smooth out uneven surfaces, or add bonding to areas that require more. Bonding can make a tooth look longer or wider, simply by adding additional surface area to healthy teeth. It’s almost like adding enamel to your teeth to make them appear properly sized. 

Gingival Recontouring

Gum recontouring is a process that involves altering the natural gumline across the teeth. If too much gum tissue is present, the tooth may be covered up more than it ought to. This makes the tooth look shorter or wider than it really is. Adjusting the gumlines will expose the perfect amount of tooth surface, making the teeth look even with others adjacent to it. Recontouring can be done surgically or with a laser.

If you are unhappy with the way your teeth look, chances are your dentist has more than one way to help you change that. Talk to your dentist about your cosmetic and aesthetic concerns to find a treatment or therapy that is perfect for your individual needs. You won’t regret it! Both of these choices are a simple and economically friendly way to impact your overall smile appearance.
