Enjoying A More Balanced Smile With Teeth Contouring
Teeth contouring involves augmenting the shape of your natural teeth to improve their appearance. This procedure is commonly used to correct anterior teeth (incisors and canines, or front teeth). Dr. Gleave will first examine your mouth to make sure you’re a good candidate for contouring treatment.
During the process, Dr. Gleave will remove small amounts of dental enamel to change teeth that you feel are too long or oddly shaped. This is a painless procedure that can be completed quickly, and it is often done in conjunction with teeth whitening at our office.
Improving The Strength And Beauty Of Your Smile With Crown Lengthening
Crown lengthening is not actually making your tooth longer but rather simply exposing more of your dental crown. This is done by adjusting the level of your gumline. Dr. Gleave uses laser dentistry to speed up both your procedure and recovery time.
Crown lengthening is also used to make some restorative procedures possible on teeth that may not have enough of the crown exposed, such as dental veneers.
During any procedure, Dr. Gleave will ensure you feel no discomfort whatsoever. We also offer safe sedation options to help you fully relax if you’re nervous to receive treatment.
