Teeth & Gum Contouring for Your Dream Smile
A smile has many meanings. For Estee Lauder “beauty, health, and happiness reside in your smile.” For Yves Saint-Laurent “a smile is the most important thing you wear.” For TLC Dental Group, the home of “Gentle Dentistry,” dental contouring is an essential procedure that we draw on to create our celebrated “Dream Smiles.” It is twofold. Tooth contouring is a quick and comfortable procedure to improve the shape, length, and surface of teeth. Gum contouring is a comfortable and complementary procedure to reshape your gums for enhanced appearance and healthy dental support. TLC Dental Group is a specialist in dental contouring procedures that are a gentle and affordable way to achieve your “Dream Smile.” If you are dissatisfied with the appearance of your smile, please call us now at 315-637-7684 for a transforming dental contouring consultation.

Tooth Contouring & Gum Contouring Procedures
Our first step in TLC tooth contouring is a careful digital X-ray exam to determine the size and location of the tooth’s pulp (the center of the tooth that contains the nerves and blood vessels) and whether tooth contouring or another procedure such as teeth bonding or dental veneers would be most appropriate.
If the exam is favorable for tooth contouring, a handpiece or laser is used to gently sculpt the tooth by removing traces of surface enamel. Once properly shaped and adjusted, the tooth is smoothed, and polished. In less than thirty minutes, an imperfect tooth is transformed into a radiant tooth worthy of a “Dream Smile”.
The first step in aesthetic gum contouring is a thorough exam of your gum tissue for treatment. If our exam is favorable and your gum line is irregular, we will mark a desired line and gently sculpt the gum to conform to the line thereby providing your teeth with an enhancing rather than distracting gum line.
Dental Contouring Durability
The durability of tooth and gum contouring largely depends on good dental hygiene and regular dental checkups to remove sub-gingival bacteria that cause gum disease. Proper care will extend the aesthetic benefits of dental contouring.
