Get Your Teeth in the Right Shape for Your Crown with Gingival Contouring

Dental crowns, which cover your entire tooth, are an indispensable method for repairing dental damage. When your teeth are too short or your damage is significant enough to reach the gum level, your smile needs extra preparation before you receive a dental crown. Since a crown acts like a cap, it needs enough room to go on top of your tooth but with enough space for soft tissue areas so your gums don’t become irritated or infected.

Your dentist has likely referred you to our office for a contouring procedure. You can trust our advanced treatment techniques and dental technology for a successful procedure. We’ll start with panoramic X-rays of your mouth and 3-D imaging for proper planning. When it’s time, our periodontist can:

  • Gently manipulate your gumline to reveal more of your tooth’s surface
  • Remove uneven edges and similar issues from your tooth to ensure a proper crown fit
  • Build up the bone in your tooth to ensure it has the strength to support a crown

Once your mouth has healed, your dentist can place the crown.

While we understand some patients may feel nervous, there’s no reason to be when you’re with us. We have three kinds of sedation to ease your anxiety. You can also cozy up with headphones, TV or music, a pillow, and a blanket so you feel right at home.

Prepare your smile for necessary dental procedures with teeth contouring in Lubbock. Call 806-507-6906 for a consultation. You can also schedule online.

Common Questions About Teeth Contouring / Crown Lengthening

What is teeth contouring?

For teeth contouring treatment, your dentist will use specialized instruments to shape and even out your rough or pointy tooth edges. We’ll remove just a small amount of tooth enamel to give you a more appealing smile line. In just one appointment, you can see a noticeable difference in the aesthetic appeal of your teeth and the impact they make on your smile.

Is teeth contouring safe?

Yes! Tooth contouring is a perfectly safe way for you to create more uniformity in your smile. All your teeth should be the same length not only for cosmetic purposes but also for protecting your teeth from grinding together and creating chips in your smile. Not sure if tooth contouring is right for your smile? Just ask!

Does teeth contouring hurt?

You should not feel any discomfort during your teeth contouring procedure. Tooth enamel doesn’t contain any nerves, so you won’t feel anything besides some pressure on your teeth. If necessary, we can numb the area we’re working on just in case. Plus, sedation options are available if you need help relaxing at the dentist.
