What areDentil Mouldings?
A dentil moulding is an ornamental moulding that has a decorative tooth-like pattern in it. In fact, “dentil” is a noun from the Latin word dens, meaning tooth. The tooth-like appearance is often accomplished by running an insert. A series of rectangular grooves, or dados are cut into the insert piece at even intervals to form the toothed pattern. The insert can then be glued and or nailed in place and gives the appearance that the moulding is one solid piece.
While dentil mouldings have been used for centuries throughout history, particularly in classical Greek and Roman architecture, they are also found in a variety of modern interior and exterior architectural designs.
