Do you dislike your smile because your front teeth have minor alignment issues? Do the issues bother you to the extent that they reduce your self-confidence in your social, personal and business lives? The many types of cosmetic dentistry include odontoplasty (also known as enameloplasty, dental recontouring and tooth reshaping). Odontoplasty might be just the thing that boosts your self-image.

At the office Doctors Kohn, Kollander, Eisenberger and Galler, we employ sophisticated technology and advanced techniques to diagnose and treat dental issues for patients of all ages. We have a long track record of successfully treating many patients, and we’re confident we can do the same for you. 

Odontoplasty can make a significant difference in the symmetry of your smile if: one tooth slightly overlaps another, the lengths of your front teeth don’t match, one or more teeth are too pointed, there’s minor crowding, or the enamel has bulges. Odontoplasty is painless, non-invasive and completed in one appointment. 

Here’s how it works.

Enamel is a tooth’s thin, see-through outer covering. (Dentin, the hard tissue beneath the enamel, gives teeth their color.)A dentist removes small amounts of enamel using a sanding disc or a diamond-tipped drill. He (or she) uses the tool to fine-tune a tooth’s shape, size and/or length. The dentist then completes the procedure by polishing the area, and the results are immediate. 

Aftercare

Odontoplasty makes the enamel of the treated tooth/teeth thinner, so you must maintain an excellent oral hygiene routine. Brush twice daily, and use dental floss and a water flosser before your final brush of the day. 

Ask a dentist if odontoplasty would benefit you. Doctors Kohn, Kollander, Eisenberger and Galler is your go-to destination for safe and effective odontoplasty and all of your general dental needs. For more information about our office and our many services, please don’t hesitate to phone us today.
