What is tooth contouring?
Tooth contouring is a procedure used to make alterations to the shape of the individual teeth. Usually, these changes are minor, but the overall impact on your smile is dramatic.
Contouring is an option for patients who have worn edges, jagged teeth, pointed teeth and chipped teeth and it can be used to smooth surfaces and improve the shape of the individual teeth.
Your dentist will use specially designed dental instruments to shape and contour the teeth for a better aesthetic. The teeth will be numbed first to prevent any discomfort.
What are the alternatives?
There are other treatments available, including cosmetic bonding, veneers and restorative treatment, such as crowns. However, tooth contouring is often the best solution for patients who only need minor attention. This treatment is more affordable than most of the other options and the procedure is much less invasive.
