Tooth Contouring and Reshaping
In just one session, tooth contouring and reshaping can help correct teeth that are crooked, chipped or cracked or even that are overlapping. This treatment is fairly new, and it can sometimes be used as a substitute for braces!
This procedure requires the removal of minuscule amounts of tooth to reshape it using a laminate the same color of your tooth to change the shape, position or length of your tooth. When teeth are crowded, meaning they are overlapping each other, or they have any chips or fractures reshaping them and contouring can give you instant results.
This procedure requires the removal of minuscule amounts of tooth structure to smooth out the tooth that is positioned at certain angles, edges that might be misaligned and to smoothing rough areas from chipped or fractured teeth. However, in order to maintain healthy teeth, only small amounts of enamel are removed from each tooth, so it remains strong.
