What is tooth reshaping?

Tooth reshaping may include a number of cosmetic treatments that focus on adjusting the shape of your teeth for a more aesthetic appearance. Tooth reshaping procedures may include dental bonding, veneers, or teeth contouring. Our dentists may recommend tooth reshaping as a good option for your smile if your teeth are chipped or misshapen, or if the teeth look too long or too pointed.

What is teeth contouring?

Teeth contouring is a simple way to adjust the shape of your teeth. In the teeth contouring procedure, our dentists remove a small amount of tooth enamel (the hard, outermost layer of the tooth) to make small adjustments in the shape and appearance of your teeth. Teeth contouring may be recommended for your smile if your teeth are chipped, cracked, irregularly shaped, or if your teeth have dips, bumps, or other imperfections on the surface. Because the enamel layer of the tooth has no feeling, teeth contouring is painless and comfortable. In most cases, we can finish the contouring treatment in just one visit to our practice to give you a more ideal smile. Our dentists may suggest combining teeth contouring with bonding or other cosmetic services for optimal results.
