Can My Teeth Be Reshaped?

Perfect smileCosmetic dentistry doesn’t have to involve a set of porcelain veneers or a full smile makeover. If you just have one or two teeth that bother you or distract from the rest of your smile beauty, there are some simple and inexpensive procedures that can help. Tooth reshaping, also known as cosmetic contouring, is one of them.

Tooth reshaping is ideal for patients who have a tooth that doesn’t match the rest, or a front tooth that has been worn down more than the others. It can also be used to reshape large teeth, especially when the two front teeth are overpowering the rest. In some cases, disproportionate teeth can disrupt your bite, cause crowding or even result in speech problems.

Teeth contouring is a simple, affordable and painless procedure that makes a huge difference in your smile when you have minor esthetic dental concerns, such as the following:

  • chipped tooth
  • shallow pits or grooves
  • worn edges
  • uneven teeth
  • pointy teeth

When undergoing tooth reshaping, your cosmetic dentist will use a special polishing instrument to carefully remove small parts of your tooth enamel to improve the appearance of your teeth to your desired results. It is non-invasive and quick with a big reward!
