Reshape Your Teeth With a Dental Contouring Treatment
Our dentists can fix these issues with a fast teeth contouring treatment:
- Misshapen teeth
- Chipped teeth
- Teeth that appear longer than others
The simple procedure merely involves removing a small amount of your tooth surface to smooth chips or give your teeth their ideal shape. Your smile will look even and well balanced.
Lengthen Teeth That Look Too Small
If one or more of your teeth look too small or too short, our trusted Panama City, FL dentists can perform a minor surgical procedure called crown lengthening. They’ll remove or reshape excess gum and (sometimes) bone tissue to expose more of your natural tooth surface. We may do this on one tooth to prepare for a restoration like veneers or a dental crown, or on a series of teeth to improve the look of a smile dominated by gums.
Get Your Cosmetic Treatments in Comfort
As with any treatment in our office, you’ll enjoy complete comfort while we work. We can offer you amenities, including:
- A pillow
- A blanket so you won’t get chilly in our chair
- Earbuds so you can enjoy music or TV programming
Speed Healing After Crown Lengthening With These Tips
After your crown lengthening procedure, we will give you instructions on how to minimize discomfort, speed the healing process, and prevent infection or other complications. Here are general guidelines:
- Take prescriptions, over-the-counter pain medications, and antibiotics as directed.
- Apply a cold compress to reduce swelling.
- Eat soft foods, and avoid chewing in the affected area.
- Gently rinse your mouth with saltwater.
- Report excessive pain or bleeding to us ASAP.
