Tooth reshaping and
contouring is a procedure to correct crooked teeth, chipped
teeth, cracked teeth, or even overlapping. Tooth reshaping
and dental contouring is commonly used to modify the length,
shape or position of your teeth. Contouring teeth may also
help correct small problems with bite. This procedure is ideal
for candidates with normal healthy teeth, but who want subtle
changes to their smile. The procedure often involves teeth
that are "sculpted" by removing a small amount of
tooth structure and/ or by using a small amount of tooth colored
laminate to build up the teeth. Contouring and reshaping of
the teeth results in smoother and more evenly spaced teeth.
This procedure can also be used to round out pointy teeth,
to reduce the length of lower teeth, and to reduce the width
of teeth that overlap others. Tooth reshaping and contouring
is a safe and conservative way to improve your smile.
