What is Cosmetic Contouring?

Cosmetic contouring is a dental procedure that is used to enhance the appearance of teeth that are eroded, misshapen, chipped or cracked, and is a conservative approach toward cosmetically improving the smile. The procedure is generally performed on the cuspids or the central and lateral incisors.

What is Used to Contour the Teeth? What Does the Process Involve?

An instrument is used that polishes down the enamel in order to reshape the tooth for the desired effect. Because a small amount of enamel must be removed, x-rays are usually taken to check the health of the teeth that require reshaping.

What Types of Smiles Can Benefit from the Procedure?

Tooth contouring is often indicated for teeth that overlap or that are slightly turned inward or outward. Poor bites or teeth that do not harmoniously meet can also be contoured.

How Many Appointments are Required?

Typically, the process only takes one appointment and is considered permanent.

Does Contouring Hurt?

No anesthetic is used since the procedure is painless.
