To help patients achieve the best possible smile, Spring Mountain Dental helps improve the appearance of the teeth and the resulting smile through a variety of methods. These include tooth reshaping, the use of veneers or all porcelain crowns, or a combination thereof. If necessary, we might recommend gum tissue contouring, where the patient’s gumline is reconfigured if it rests too high or low upon the teeth.
Tooth shaping is a procedure where the dentist gives the patient’s teeth a more uniform appearance and eliminates uneven edges and sharp points. This is done by removing a small amount of enamel from the tooth. Veneers are very thin, custom made shells of tooth-colored material that are bonded to the front of the tooth, thus altering the shape, color, size, or length of the tooth.
