Tooth Contouring and Reshaping

Sometimes, minor defects in the teeth can cause major aesthetic and functional problems. Nobody wants to smile only to expose a chipped tooth, or a mouth with unevenly sized teeth, or that extra pointy canine. Sweet Water Family Dentistry offers a minimally invasive, highly affordable and simple procedure for correcting these minor problems that spoil the look of your smile. The procedure is called tooth contouring and reshaping and involves the removal of a tiny bit of enamel to sculpt the tooth into a better shape and fit. The treatment is mostly performed on the most visible teeth such as the upper front incisors and canines.

Dental Contouring and Reshaping can correct the following problems with the teeth:

  • slight overlaps
  • uneven tooth length
  • tooth edges that are too pointy or flattened
  • small chips
  • minor bite problems

Before performing the procedure, we examine your teeth to understand how contouring can be used to accomplish your goal of smile enhancement or correct a bite problem. If we feel that contouring and reshaping can cause a bite imbalance, we will suggest an alternative course of treatment to improve your smile. Mostly, anesthesia is not needed as the enamel is non-living and does not contain any nerves. Patients report feeling some vibration as the tooth is sculpted using dental instruments and then polished for a smooth finish. The procedure is very quick and the results are visible immediately.

Dr. Sajid is like NASA scientists when it comes to dentistry. He knows what he's talking about, and definitely knows what he doing. The 4 pearly white crowns he put in mouth fits just right.
