Tooth Reshaping and Contouring

Are your teeth irregularly shaped and sized? A tooth reshaping and contouring treatment may be the right choice for you. At Stephen J. Minns DDS, we recommend this procedure for patients who have minor dental imperfections, such as slight overlapping. For this procedure, a cosmetic dentistmight remove a few millimeters oftooth enamel or add material to your teeth through bonding. Tooth reshaping and bonding has helped patients just like you feel more confident with their smile.

Crowns

Like the name suggests, a crownis placed on top of your existing tooth to improve its outward appearance. Dental crowns are especially useful for altering the shape and size of your tooth. If you get a crown, it will cover all of your tooth that is visible. That way, no one will be able to tell that you’ve had a dental procedure done!

Dental Bridges

Bridges are used to remove gaps in your smile caused by missing teeth. If the gap is surrounded on both sides by healthy teeth, you may be a candidate for a dental bridge procedure. Your cosmetic dentist will place an artificial tooth in the gap and secure it via crowns on the surrounding teeth. Once everything has been placed just so, the artificial tooth is cemented into place. The end result looks natural and beautiful.

If you identify with any of the above problems, you may be a candidate for cosmetic dentistry. Some cosmetic procedures are best handled by someone who specializes in the area. At Stephen J. Minns DDS, we are more than happy to refer you to the cosmetic dentists in our professional network. Our main objective is to help you feel more comfortable and confident with your smile.
