If you’re planning on cosmetically reshaping your tooth, you’re on your way toward the beautiful smile you have always wanted. This is because your stubborn, oddly shaped, and unattractive tooth will be enhanced to your desire.

To help you know a little more about the treatment so you feel prepared in the dental chair at Lakeview Dental Care, our dentist, Dr. Jeffrey Brink, is happy to share the details involved.

Your treatment will begin by taking a series of dental X-rays. This is necessary to examine the thickness of the tooth enamel. To begin treatment, your dentist will use a special dental tool that is a small hand piece. This tool will “burr” gently along the tooth enamel to trim, shape, and shave it. Once it’s the desired appearance, your dentist will place a fluoride varnish over it. This will help seal the tooth, prevent sensitivity, and strengthen the tooth enamel.

Because this treatment is non-invasive, anesthesia is usually not required. The treatment should be simple and painless, which makes anesthesia unnecessary. However, if you feel the need to numb the mouth before treatment, our dental team will be happy to cater to your needs. We can also provide sedation if you feel nervous or anxious about the treatment.
