Esthetic tooth contouring is also referred to as tooth reshaping and dental contouring. It is a popular cosmetic dentistry service for patients who are unhappy with their smile and who have minor problems.
WHAT IS TOOTH RESHAPING?
Tooth reshaping allows Dr. Gaylor to remove small amounts of tooth enamel, which is the outer covering of the tooth. This process changes the length, shape, or surface of one or more teeth to create a beautiful, flawless smile.
It is a simple and easy treatment to fix:
- a chipped front tooth.
- worn-down, uneven edges.
- shallow pits or grooves in the tooth enamel.
- minor bite problems.
- minor unevenness.
- slight overlaps.
- one or more teeth disproportionate in size to each other (i.e. large, pointy canine teeth).
WHAT TO EXPECT FROM ESTHETIC TOOTH CONTOURING
Dr. Gaylor uses a polishing instrument to complete the treatment. The instrument allows our cosmetic dentist to remove small amounts of tooth enamel. It is a quick and painless procedure, but can make a huge impact on your smile.
The tooth reshaping procedure is relatively inexpensive and noninvasive. It is important to know that reshaping can only occur on healthy teeth. That means we will take x-rays and examine them beforehand to make sure reshaping is right for you.
