Refine the Look of Your Smile With a Simple Cosmetic Treatment

While dental veneers and teeth whitening remain ever-popular cosmetic dentistry treatments, two lesser known treatments can play a major role in improving your smile.

If you have teeth that are pointy or hang down lower than your others, you may be a good candidate for teeth contouring. For this treatment:

  • Dr. Mullins will remove a small amount of tooth enamel to even out your smile line.
  • You’ll end up with a more beautiful and refined smile after just one appointment.
  • You don’t need to worry about pain with this procedure, as tooth enamel doesn’t contain any nerves.

If your teeth appear too short, crown lengthening may be the perfect choice for you. Using either a scalpel or a low-power dental laser, Dr. Mullins will remove excess gum tissue that is covering up your pearly whites. The crown of your teeth (the white part) will look longer and more aesthetically pleasing. This treatment is also used to prepare teeth for other treatments such as dental crowns or dental veneers. As with teeth contouring, usually just one appointment gives you the results you want.

If you think you could benefit from teeth contouring and crown lengthening in Powell, call My Family Dentistry today at 865-685-9939 for an appointment. We’ll discuss your options and help you decide if one or both of these treatments are right for you. You can also request an appointment online.

Common Questions About Teeth Contouring / Crown Lengthening

What is teeth contouring?

Tooth contouring is the process of removing tooth enamel from the edges of your teeth. If your teeth have extra enamel around the edges, we can remove some of it without causing any discomfort or disrupting the health of your teeth.

Is teeth contouring safe?

Yes! Tooth contouring is a perfectly safe way for you to create more uniformity in your smile. All your teeth should be the same length not only for cosmetic purposes but also for protecting your teeth from grinding together and creating chips in your smile. Not sure if tooth contouring is right for your smile? Just ask!

What is crown lengthening?

Crown lengthening involves removing excess gum tissue to make short teeth appear longer. It can also help make room for restorations like crowns or veneers. Your treatment will likely be performed with a special low-power dental laser that will remove the tissue and seal your gums at the same time. A laser procedure should be completely comfortable with minimal healing time required.
