What is Dentil Molding?

Dentil MoldingDentil molding is a type of wooden trim that has blocks shaped like teeth. It is suitable for both interior and exterior uses.

Dentil molding is composed of tooth-shaped blocks of wood. Dentil molding was first used in ancient Greek and Roman architecture when the blocks were carved into the stone of the buildings. Modern dentil molding is frequently crafted from wood or wood composite materials. It is often more difficult to install than other types of molding, and it may be more expensive to add dentil molding to a structure. The blocks must be individually cut using precise measurements. Each block is then carefully installed to ensure that the spacing between blocks is correct. Dentil molding appears on many homes and buildings that are modeled after Roman and Greek architecture. The unique trim may be used around doors and ceilings in the interior of a building, but it can also appear along roof lines.
