Cosmetic tooth contouring is a simple, safe, painless and quick means of improving the look of your smile. This painless procedure takes less than an hour and you’ll be amazed at the difference!
What is tooth contouring?
Tooth contouring is a procedure used to make alterations to the shape of the individual teeth. Usually, these changes are minor, but the overall impact on your smile is dramatic.
Contouring is an option for patients who have worn edges, jagged teeth, pointed teeth and chipped teeth and it can be used to smooth surfaces and improve the shape of the individual teeth.
Your dentist will use specially designed dental instruments to shape and contour the teeth for a better aesthetic. The teeth will be numbed first to prevent any discomfort.
What are the alternatives?
There are other treatments available, including cosmetic bonding, veneers and restorative treatment, such as crowns. However, tooth contouring is often the best solution for patients who only need minor attention. This treatment is more affordable than most of the other options and the procedure is much less invasive.
How can I find out more?
If you would like to find out more about tooth contouring, call the practice or pop in to arrange an appointment. We can have a good look at your teeth and talk you through the process of tooth contouring to see whether it would be a viable option and a treatment you would like to consider.
CEREC is a really impressive form of technology, which reduces treatment time for patients who require restorative treatment. If you need a crown, veneers or an inlay or onlay and you don’t have the time or patience to wait around, CEREC is the answer.
What is CEREC?
CEREC is an advanced form of technology, which enables dental practices to design and manufacture new restorations on-site; this means that we can carry out treatment in a single day, rather than having to wait for 2 weeks for a mould to be sent away to a dental laboratory, made into a new restoration and returned for fitting.
With CEREC, it is possible to design, create and fit a bespoke restoration in a matter of minutes (rather than days) and this has many benefits for patients and dentists. CEREC uses images taken of the teeth and converts them into highly detailed 3D models, which act as a template for the new creation; these designs are then sent to the milling machine and seconds later, the new restoration is ready to fit.
What are the benefits of CEREC for patients in Weston-super-Mare?
The most obvious benefit of CEREC is that it cuts treatment time drastically. The fact that the entire process can take place in a single session also eliminates the need for temporary restorations and means that patients only have to find time to schedule one appointment, which can be a blessing for those with very hectic schedules. With CEREC, the treatment process is also much cleaner and more pleasant, as CEREC uses images, rather than putty moulds to create the new restoration. Many patients find the sensation of having dental putty in their mouth uncomfortable, so this can be a real benefit.
CEREC also enables dentists to have more influence over the design of the new restoration and the manufacturing process is more accurate.

What is cosmetic contouring?
Cosmetic contouring is a cosmetic dental procedure, which is designed to correct minor issues, such as chips, worn surfaces and misshapen teeth. It is a safe, quick and affordable treatment, which can have a massive impact on the look of your smile, as well as your confidence.
Using their expertise and skill, your Clifton Dental Studio dentist will smooth jagged surfaces and level chipped teeth to create a healthier looking smile.
Often, the changes that we make to individual teeth are very small and you may not even notice them at first; however, the overall impact of treatment on the look of the smile is incredible and you’ll be amazed at how much can be achieved during a short session in the dental chair.
Is cosmetic contouring painful?
This procedure is painless and there is nothing to worry about in terms of injections or needles. Usually, treatment takes less than an hour and you won’t have any unpleasant side-effects to deal with after treatment. We also offer cosmetic bonding, which involves using dental composite to patch up work surfaces and repair chipped teeth.

If you’re unhappy with your smile because you feel there is too much gum tissue on show or your gums appear to dominate your smile, we can help. Gum re-shaping, also known as gum contouring, is a very effective cosmetic dental procedure, which adjusts the shape of the gums to compliment your teeth and produce a beautiful smile. We often use gum re-shaping to treat a gummy smile; this is an aesthetic problem, which occurs when the teeth are covered by more gum tissue than normal, making the teeth look short and small. The aim of the procedure is to reduce the amount of gum tissue that is visible and uncover more of the tooth crowns so that the smile looks more balanced and more attractive. The procedure usually takes less than an hour, is painless and makes an amazing difference to the appearance of your smile. Before the procedure, the gums are numbed and your Clifton Dental Studio dentist will then use their expertise to gently trim away tiny pieces of the gum to reveal more of the teeth and produce a more aesthetically pleasing smile. Although a gummy smile does not cause any pain or medical problems, we understand that if you’re unhappy with the look of your smile, this can have a negative impact on your confidence and we will do everything we can to ensure you leave our clinic with a beaming, radiant smile.
The world of modern dentistry today in Chepstow is a wonderful one and if you are suffering from any issues at all with your mouth, and even on your face, cosmetic dentistry has all bases covered. It starts with the basics in order to get your teeth and gums healthy first and plug up any gaps with bridges, implants or dentures; damaged teeth can be repaired with dental crowns and decay can be beautifully hidden away with white fillings- then the real cosmetics can start in earnest. Gums can be contoured with laser surgery and then repaired with veneers if need be; veneers can also cover away flaws in your teeth (along with bonding), whereas if the teeth are simply just discoloured, whitening will restore the colour back to the enamel. Even the lines and cracks in your face can be overcome by dentists today by injecting dermal fillers and BOTOX in to the damaged places. If all of this has wetted the appetite and you fancy a bit of a make-over, then get in touch with Clifton Dental of Bristol for information about all aspects of cosmetic dentistry, for they serve the area.

There have been some radical leaps in technology when it comes to all things dental and one area that has benefited the most is cosmetic dentistry; and in turn it has been a godsend to patients that desperately need a smile make-over. Quite simply, there is nothing that cosmetic dentistry can’t do to help you with your problems; the first is addressing the issue of tooth loss. With the aid of a dental bridge, partial dentures, crowns and a dental implant, this can be rectified before you know it. If signs of ageing are bugging you then you can have veneers fitted, or some cosmetic bonding done to help relieve your worries and hide away your problems. Gums can be contoured with laser treatment; cracks in your skin can be treated with botox, dermal fillers or a chemical peel. Of course, if your teeth are in pretty good shape anyway, all it may take to get your smile back on track is a bit of whitening. The choices in cosmetic dentistry are endless and you will find something to overcome your problems with if you take a leap of faith.

Computers have changed every aspect of life, from what you do personally to big business, and it is hard to see how we lived life before them. Dentistry has improved immensely because of the computer and the treatments that are now offered to you have become so refined; the perfect example of this is CEREC. If you need to have a bridge, a crown or some veneers fitted, the treatment would normally take around 2-3 weeks to complete, but with CEREC, you can be in and out in around 90 glorious minutes! It works like this: you pop along to the dentists who will first take a series of images through digital x-rays and then relay them to a computer with the CEREC programme. This then designs your new fitting and feeds this into a machine that will make the part you need. In the meantime, this allows the dentist to prepare you. When the part is ready, it will be fitted into place. The beauty of this is that if there is a problem with your new part, it can be rectified in-house, there and then. For more advice about CEREC, the costs and where you can go in Bath to get it done, then get in contact with the Clifton dental studio of Bristol, as they serve the whole of the area.
