Reshaping and Contouring
Reshaping is also known on Contouring. As the name suggests, contouring is a cosmetic procedure to help with chipped or misshaped teeth. Dentists can reshape teeth to a more natural appearance and is relatively quick. Contouring can address teeth that may be a little long as well. This relatively painless procedure can take a few visits and often does not require anesthesia.
Reshaping, or contouring, removes only small portions of a tooth and starts with your dentist getting X-rays. She will then discuss with you what goals you have in mind for your smile.
About the Procedures
During your visits, your dentist will begin by removing small portions of teeth. She may use a small grinder or abrasive strips to gently reshape the teeth and to smooth out chips. She may also cut teeth to give the desired angle and look. Do you prefer a more rounded tooth look or something more squared?
Reshaping and contouring is a simple and subtle way to improve your smile.
The Finishing Touches
To complete the procedures, your dentist may apply veneers or bonds. Veneers are specially-shaped porcelain or plastic pieces that are mounted on a tooth. Bonding finishes the tooth by providing a blended color to your smile and gives it a polish.Call us to see if cosmetic dentistry is right for you.
