Imperfections or problems like slightly overlapping or irregularly shaped teeth, tiny chips in the teeth, or excessively pointy cuspids, can often be fixed with a little tooth reshaping and dental contouring.
What Is Tooth Reshaping?
Tooth reshaping, also called dental contouring, is a cosmetic dentistry technique that removes small amounts of tooth enamel (the outer covering of the tooth) in order to change the shape, length, or surface of one or more teeth.
Even a few millimetres of reduction in the right places can really improve the appearance of teeth.
The process is often combined with bonding, a cosmetic dentistry treatment that uses tooth-coloured composite material to sculpt and shape the teeth.
