Cosmetic contouring, or tooth reshaping, can be used to alter the length, shape, position, and, in some cases, the bite of your teeth. In a few minor circumstances, cosmetic contouring can even be an effective alternative to braces.

Procedure

Depending on the condition of your teeth, this procedure can take between one and three appointments to complete. After taking dental X-rays to ensure that there is enough supporting bone between the teeth, Dr. Levine will begin sculpting your teeth. Anesthesia is not usually necessary during the procedure. Using specialized instruments, Dr. Levine will gradually remove surface enamel and shape the sides of your teeth. The teeth are then polished and smoothed.

Cosmetic contouring is frequently performed alongside bonding to help you achieve a beautiful smile. Please contact Blue Ribbon Dental today to learn more about how cosmetic contouring can help you!
