White Tooth Dental Takeaways:

Enameloplasty is meant to be a very conservative procedure and because the goal is to not remove so much enamel that the underlying dentin (the part of the tooth that has nerve endings) is exposed, there are not many indications for it. Other than reshaping "pointy" canine teeth (which is what they are actually supposed to look like!) the most common reason for enameloplasty is to make space to move teeth during orthodontic treatment. At White Tooth Dental in cases of "cosmetic" reshaping (for chips or to change the shape of a tooth), we always carefully treatment plan whether this would be the best option.
