What is it?
Enamel is the hard exterior coating of a tooth. An Enameloplasty is a cosmetic procedure when the outer layer of the tooth is reshaped or recontoured. This gives the tooth a smoother, often more youthful, appearance.
Enameloplasty is often done when teeth are lightly chipped, uneven, pointed, or contain small bumps in the enamel. These imperfections may happen for any number of reasons like grinding ones teeth, biting onto hard substances, or natural wear over time.
What can I expect during my appointment?
The procedure is very simple. No anesthesia is needed. Dr. Merlino uses a handpiece to gently reshape and smooth one or more of your teeth. The results can be like having had orthodontics for months!
