There are many things people can do to improve their teeth. Good habits such as regular brushing and flossing are a simple thing that everyone can do. For some people the simple things are not enough.
They want to turn to other procedures to help their teeth. Enamel shaping is a procedure that can help many people. The question to ask is if you will benefit from enamel shaping.
Fixing the Smile
A chipped tooth or rough teeth can ruin the smile. Many times, these are just a cosmetic problem. They are not always something for a person to worry about, but that does not stop it from happening. A smile is one of the way people judge others. Because of that, many turn to enamel shaping to fix their smile that is no longer perfect.
The goal of enamel shaping is to remove a small part of the surface of the tooth to smooth it over or cover a chip. It does not require a lot of time or money at the dental offices to do this. It is also a painless procedure that is not very different from a good cleaning.
What it Does Not Do
While enamel shaping can fix minor imperfections or roughness of the teeth, it cannot do everything. People with large chips may not benefit. If the problem with rough teeth or chipped teeth is because of tooth decay or some other problem with the teeth, enamel shaping is not enough on its own to fix the problem. It is important to fix the underlying problems first.
