Cosmetic contouring, also called “enameloplasty,” is often used alongside dental bonding. In this procedure, a special buffing tool is used to gently remove a small amount of enamel from some of your teeth, improving your smile’s appearance.
This treatment may be used for uneven teeth, to eliminate tiny chips in the teeth, or to improve the shape of a pointed tooth. Only a very small amount of enamel is removed, so this procedure is not uncomfortable and it will not negatively affect your oral health in any way.
First, make sure to continue to brush twice a day with fluoride toothpaste. Floss once per day, and use mouthwash as desired to keep your mouth healthy. You should also come and see your dentist at Goldstein Garber & Salama every six months for an oral exam and teeth cleaning.
You can eat normally. However, we recommend that you avoid biting into really hard foods with your bonded teeth. Things like almonds, popcorn kernels, and ice should be chewed with your rear teeth. Biting them with your bonded teeth can wear them down and increase the risk of breakage or loosening the bonding material.
Your teeth are meant for chewing. They’re not meant to do things like open packages and bottles, tear tape, or for any other such purposes. You also should not bite or chew non-food objects like your fingernails, pencils, or pens.
