Do you dislike your smile because your front teeth have minor alignment issues? Do the issues bother you to the extent that they reduce your self-confidence in your social, personal and business lives? The many types of cosmetic dentistry include odontoplasty (also known as enameloplasty, dental recontouring and tooth reshaping). Odontoplasty might be just the thing that boosts your self-image.
At the office Imagine Smile Design, we employ sophisticated technology and advanced techniques to diagnose and treat dental issues for patients of all ages. We have a long track record of successfully treating many patients, and we’re confident we can do the same for you.
Odontoplasty can make a significant difference in the symmetry of your smile if: one tooth slightly overlaps another, the lengths of your front teeth don’t match, one or more teeth are too pointed, there’s minor crowding, or the enamel has bulges. Odontoplasty is painless, non-invasive and completed in one appointment.
Here’s how it works.
Enamel is a tooth’s thin, see-through outer covering. (Dentin, the hard tissue beneath the enamel, gives teeth their color.)A dentist removes small amounts of enamel using a sanding disc or a diamond-tipped drill. He (or she) uses the tool to fine-tune a tooth’s shape, size and/or length. The dentist then completes the procedure by polishing the area, and the results are immediate.
Odontoplasty makes the enamel of the treated tooth/teeth thinner, so you must maintain an excellent oral hygiene routine. Brush twice daily, and use dental floss and a water flosser before your final brush of the day.
Ask a dentist if odontoplasty would benefit you. Imagine Smile Design is your go-to destination for safe and effective odontoplasty and all of your general dental needs. For more information about our office and our many services, please don’t hesitate to phone us today.

Dr. Geen is a very talented dentist who takes pride in her work. I am so happy we have finally found a NYC dentist we like
I am so impressed with your kindness, hospitality and talent. The world would be a better place if all doctors were this way. I have waited 35 years to fix my teeth. Words cannot express how happy I am with renewed confidence to SMILE! Thank you
Sparkling clean office with all the latest technology bells and whistles. Very nice and knowledgeable staff. Added bonus: they have a great lip balm (not Vaseline) to protect lips during any work or cleaning.
