What Is an Enameloplasty?

Posted on 12/1/2023 by Giri Palani
Your teeth play a role in your smile and enhance confidence. Sometimes, their shape and size might be different from what you desire. You can opt for a reshaping procedure that can help you improve your smile. Enameloplasty is a standard cosmetic dental procedure that focuses on reshaping your teeth. You may wonder what it involves and how it works.

Understanding Enameloplasty

Enameloplasty is a cosmetic procedure in the dental treatment field for reshaping teeth. The dentist removes a small amount of your tooth enamel to transform the tooth length, shape, or surface. The focus is mainly on the front teeth as they are essential in your appearance and smile. The procedure can effectively fix minor teeth imperfections and chipped teeth.

A cosmetic dentist uses a buffing tool to remove a thin layer of your enamel and improve your teeth. The procedure goes in tandem with other cosmetic treatments, such as dental bonding.

How Does It Work?

Enameloplasty lasts for 20 - 30 minutes. The dentist starts with identifying and marking the target teeth. They then use a buffing tool designed for tooth contouring. The tool removes unnecessary materials to fix uneven teeth and other flaws. This helps in beautifying your smile. It is also painless, simple, and quick. You do not require any recovery time. The results from the process are also permanent, as your trimmed enamel cannot grow back.

What Does an Enameloplasty Treat?

This procedure is a suitable replacement for braces and Invisalign as it offers immediate results. It is an effective option for treating uneven and irregularly shaped teeth and imperfections. It also comes in handy when fixing cracked or chipped teeth, handling teeth irregularities, enhancing teeth appearance, or improving compatibility with veneers.
