Repair chipped or uneven teeth with tooth reshaping and contouring at Wildwood Dental Clinic.
Sometimes a tooth could be causing minor cosmetic issues with your smile. Tooth reshaping or contouring is an excellent cosmetic dentistry solution for those wishing to shorten teeth that are too long, or reshape and contour teeth that are uneven, chipped or jagged. By removing small amounts of enamel from your teeth, our reshaping and contouring service can improve the look of your smile. This procedure is ideal for minor cosmetic issues and has proven to be one of the most convenient and cost-effective options for fixing the appearance of some teeth.
What does a tooth reshaping and contouring appointment entail?
Tooth reshaping and contouring begins by taking digital X-rays of the patient’s teeth in order to determine if they are a good candidate for the procedure. After the health of the teeth are examined and the dentist determines that the patient is a good fit for reshaping or contouring, markings will be made on the teeth to indicate where it will be sculpted. The dentist will ensure that the patient is happy with the suggested improvements prior to proceeding with the reshaping/contouring procedure. The marked areas will be sculpted and the procedure will finish with the teeth being smoothed and polished. Typically this procedure is completed at the clinic within 30 minutes.
