What is Tooth Masking?

Posted on 8/7/2023 by Evan
What is Tooth Masking?Tooth masking is a standard cosmetic dental procedure that helps enhance your teeth' look. If you have discolored, chipped, or cracked teeth, a dentist will place a tooth-colored resin material to hide these imperfections. This resin material is tailored to match the color of your surrounding teeth. Thus you will have a natural look. Additionally, you can find other materials for the tooth mask, such as porcelain and ceramic. Some of the top reasons you should consider tooth masking include the following:

Improved Appearance

Tooth masking helps to hide all imperfections on your teeth. It also helps to enhance the shape of your teeth if you have uneven teeth. The material for the mask is customized to be similar to the color of your teeth. Consider this dental procedure if you are looking for a more uniform smile.

Minimally Invasive

This procedure does not involve drilling or making incisions. The dentist will clean and prepare your teeth for bonding during the procedure. Then a tooth-colored material such as resin, ceramic, or porcelain is applied on the front surface of your teeth. The dentist must shape the material to suit the shape of your mouth.


Tooth masking is a durable option for your chipped or discolored teeth. But to enjoy the aesthetic appeal of this dental solution, ensure you brush and floss your teeth. You should also avoid staining substances such as coffee and tobacco products. These substances will discolor the masking material and interfere with its aesthetic appeal. If you love playing sports or regularly engage in other rough activities, always wear a mouthguard. The mouthguard will protect your mask from injuries.

Generally, tooth masking is a coating on your teeth that works to conceal any defects on your teeth. Appropriate care will provide the needed aesthetic appeal for many years. Regular dental checkups and cleanings will also ensure the mask is in good condition.
