Teeth contouring is a very simple reshaping of the teeth. We're not adding any materials to the teeth, it's just simply smoothing or reshaping sharp edges and corners to make the teeth more aesthetically pleasing. It's utilized when patients have just very minor discrepancies that they don't particularly like, and those problems don't justify the utilization of veneers or crowns, for example. It's just a minor touch-up – very quick, simple correction of certain problems.
Reshaping your smile by smoothing the edges of your teeth has several advantages:
- Cost – Typically this option is more affordable than other forms of cosmetic dentistry.
- Pain-free – Tooth reshaping isn’t just painless; you won’t feel anything at all!
- Oral health – By eliminating crevices created by overlapping teeth, we’ll make your smile easier to clean.
Learn How Adjusting Your Enamel Can Adjust Your Attitude
An uneven smile can make you feel self-conscious. But maybe braces aren’t an option for you. Contouring can be an affordable way to adjust your teeth if your dental problems are minor. All it takes is removing small layers of enamel from the edges of your teeth to change their shape. We can also add a tooth-colored composite resin in the form of tooth bonding to smooth out significant chips or cover minor fractures.
These small changes can make you feel like you’ve got a whole new smile. And that can mean the difference between feeling self-conscious and self-confident.
Enjoy Dramatic Results With Additional Cosmetic Dentistry Services
Cosmetic contouring is a great way to make a subtle change to your smile. But if you need to correct more than overlapping teeth or rough edges, you can combine it with any number of cosmetic dentistry procedures, such as:
- Teeth whitening
- Dental veneers
- ClearCorrect orthodontics
- Tooth bonding
If you’d like to reshape your gumline, particularly if you have a “gummy” smile, we can also help you get in touch with a periodontal specialist to achieve great results from crown lengthening.
