Enamel Contouring and The Difference It Can Make to Your Smile Atlanta, GA
Teeth Health Atlanta GA

The average smile has minor imperfections that can easily be improved through enamel contouring rather than traditional cosmetic dental treatments in Atlanta like porcelain veneers.

What Is Enamel Contouring?

Also known as enameloplasty, this quick procedure changes the anatomy of natural teeth by reshaping the edges in a minimally invasive manner. Enamel contouring only removes a bit of the tooth’s outermost layer, known as the enamel. And the process is pain free, so it doesn’t require any anesthesia.

Enamel contouring can improve the appearance of teeth that are:

  • Irregular in shape
  • Mismatched in size
  • Too long
  • Too pointy
  • Chipped, grooved, or pitted
  • Uneven or jagged

What Enamel Contouring Can’t Do

Enameloplasty does have its limitations, for instance, it can’t change the shade of teeth, close in gaps, straighten severely crooked teeth, protect teeth, or remove decay.

Combining Enamel Recontouring With Other Dental Procedures

This procedure can be combined with other cosmetic treatments to provide you with the most dramatic results. For instance, whitening your teeth once they have been contoured can make a big enough difference that everyone is sure to notice. Enamel contouring can also make room for other dental work like crowns or veneers to help give a more uniform appearance.

Dr. Zelby was recommended to me by both my dentist and periodontist. I could not agree more. the kindness, caring, and professionalism that I experienced at Aesthetic & Implant Dentistry of Atlanta is above and beyond. I highly recommend Dr. Zelby, his assistants, and the staff. I couldn't be happier with my new teeth and wish I had done this years ago! five stars to you guys

Catherine W.

Everything about my experience was enjoyable. I felt like the practice used all of the most advanced and best technology out there which gave me a wonderful feeling of confidence. They were very professional and straight forward and I have never had a better dentistry experience. I'd highly recommend checking them out if you're looking for a new dentist. They're friendly and efficient and they really do know what they're doing there.

Dr Zelby has been my dentist now for almost 17 years. Not only is he a really nice person, his dentistry is completely top notch. If you need any restorations, I don't think that there is another place to even consider. You'll be amazed with his work!

Brian S.

Dr. Levine was great, and Dr. Zelby stopped by and answered some questions I had about sheering forces on enamel. They were both very friendly, and the hygenist (whose name I forget, unfortunately) gave one of the most thorough cleanings I've ever had. The office was clean, the devices all seem shiny and well maintained, and overall it was a great experience

Benjamin S.

After going to another dentist, doctor Zelby was able to fix my front two teeth so that the front two teeth were back to the same length and color. I'm so thankful he was able to make them look normal again. Dr. Zelby and his staff are so pleasant to be around as well. I highly recommend this office if you have a major problem with your teeth that need to be fixed. He can get it done and he will make sure you are happy.

Carrie G.

I had been going to the same dentist for many years and switched to Aesthetic and Implant recently. My experience with Dr Levine was incredible. I cannot be happier with the decision I made. The cleaning and other services I received were well above and beyond any other I have ever had. Highly recommend this practice to everyone!

Matthew G.

Couldn't be happier! Absolutely worth the travel time. Dr Zelby is without doubt the best - caring, knowledgeable, reassuring and very professional. Couldn't ask for better dentistry. Staff also very competent and professional. Beautiful, clean environment

Diane W.

Megan is the best dental hygienist I’ve ever had. She does a phenomenal job keeping your teeth clean, is super nice, and makes you feel right at home. The whole staff is very friendly and I couldn’t recommend this place enough!
