Reshaping Your Smile with Cosmetic Dentistry

Girl Smiling in O'Fallon ILYou may know that a dentist can fix crooked teeth or stained teeth, but what about teeth that are uneven? Many patients hide their smile because they don’t like the shape of their teeth or have an uneven smile. The good news is that a skilled cosmetic dentist can fix the shape of your teeth too!

Dental contouring or cosmetic tooth reshaping is an easy and highly effective procedure to help patients regain a confident smile. Contouring can improve the appearance and function of your smile by correcting small imperfections such as uneven teeth or gum lines as well as teeth that are just slightly overcrowded. When combining your cosmetic contouring with other services in cosmetic dentistry, such as teeth whitening, bonding or porcelain veneers, you can achieve the flawless smile transformation you deserve.

What is Teeth Reshaping?

Teeth reshaping or contouring is a quick, affordable and painless procedure that produces immediate results of enhancing your natural smile. Dental contouring might be a beneficial option for you if you suffer from the following aesthetic concerns:

  • Overlapping teeth
  • Irregularly shaped teeth
  • Chipped teeth
  • Pointy teeth

During cosmetic dental contouring, we will gently remove tiny portions of your tooth to make it more attractive. This can mean making long teeth shorter or shorter. Using special instruments and abrasion techniques, our dentists can reshape your unsightly teeth and smooth or polish them once the sanding is complete. If needed, we can remove enamel in some areas and add filling or structure to other areas. Rest assured that tooth reshaping will not compromise the health of the tooth, and it is designed to feel and look completely natural.
