Enamel Shaping

Enamel shaping is one of the many terms used to describe a process of shaping natural teeth to improve their appearance. It is also known as odontoplasty, enameloplasty, stripping, recontouring, slenderizing and re-shaping.

When teeth become crowded or uneven or incisal edges appear rough, enamel shaping may be used to correct the flaw. This process cannot solve all problems, however. Sometimes more extensive treatment is necessary or re-shaping may be used in conjunction with other treatments.

Enamel shaping is usually quick and painless. Anesthesia is not necessary and the results can be seen immediately.
