Enameloplasty (also known as Cosmetic Tooth Shaping) is often best performed at the completion of your orthodontic treatment. As your teeth move into their new position, some of the wear marks related to your original malocclusion can begin to show, making your teeth appear uneven. Enameloplasty can be used to re-shape and even out those edges that appear abnormal.
As you get closer to completing your orthodontic treatment ask us if enameloplasty is the right choice for you. Below is a list of some of the common reasons for considering enameloplasty:
- Uneven or worn edges
- Misshapen teeth
- Small chips on the edges
- Small imperfections
Enameloplasty at our Phoenix offices is performed using a small sanding disc or a fine diamond bur to take small amounts of enamel off of the tooth surface. Enameloplasty (also known as Cosmetic Tooth Shaping) is generally pain-free and requires no after-care.
