At the Art of Cosmetic Dentistry in Buckhead we offer both general and cosmetic dental services. One of the most under utilized cosmetic procedures is cosmetic contouring. Over the course of our lives our teeth settle into bite patterns that can cause uneven wear on the incisal or biting edge of the tooth. This can result in a smile that appears jagged or rounded off. As this is more commonly seen in older people, it can make you appear “older”. A short visit with one of our doctors for cosmetic contouring can easily restore the smooth and balanced edges of your smile. The procedure will not generally be covered by insurance, but the cost is very minimal when compared to the price of veneers. Be sure and ask the dentist at your next appointment if you could benefit from a cosmetic contour procedure.
