Tooth Contouring in West Austin TX

If you feel unhappy about the appearance of your teeth because of unevenness, small chips, or rough edges, you may be in for a surprise. The simple process of tooth contouring is often all it takes to greatly improve the appearance of your smile. If your smile suffers from mild imperfections, schedule a consultation with Dr. Jaeckle and our team. We look forward to taking a look at your smile, while determining the best cosmetic solution for your improvement.

What Is Dental Contouring?

Dental contouring is a cosmetic procedure that may improve the textures of your tooth’s surface. Dr. Jaeckle will use a polishing tool to gently remove an extremely minimal portion of your tooth’s enamel. He will discuss your concerns with you, to determine which aspects of your tooth or teeth you find unsatisfactory. For example, if you have a small chip in your tooth, or you have ridges in your teeth that you wish were smooth, he will gently smooth these problems away for a streamlined finish.

What Are the Benefits?

An aesthetic concern that makes you feel unhappy with your smile is often much simple to correct than you may think. If you have one tooth that appears different than the rest because it is longer or looks jagged, for example, quick contouring can instantly solve your problem. Look over the following additional concerns Dr. Jaeckle may address with tooth contouring, so you can avoid more costly and complex treatments, such as porcelain veneers:

  • Two teeth that gently overlap
  • Small chips
  • An uneven appearance
  • Ridged teeth
  • Awkward shape or size
  • Rough tooth surface

Am I A Good Candidate?

If your smile displays minor aesthetic imperfections that Dr. Jaeckle deems simple enough to correct with gentle smoothing, you will likely make an excellent candidate for tooth contouring. Rest assured, Dr. Jaeckle will speak with you about your goals, and may suggest combination treatment, such as bonding and contouring, to ensure you achieve the beautiful smile you deserve.
