If you have any questions, our team of experts is at hand to offer the advice and answers that will be vital in you making an informed decision.

What is meant what tooth reshaping and contouring

Tooth reshaping, also known as dental contouring, is a procedure that the dentist uses to remove small parts of your tooth enamel (the outermost layer of your tooth), to alter the surface, the length, and shape of a single or several teeth. Our dentists usually apply this treatment to fix cracked teeth, chipped teeth, crooked teeth, and in some cases overlapping teeth. Our dentists can also use this procedure as an alternative to braces in special cases. The few millimeters removed to produce a huge difference and will create a perfect smile that you always wished for, and with little discomfort on your part.

How is the procedure done?

The dentist at our clinic removes the enamel with a drill or a laser. You will have an X-ray before the treatment commences to determine the size and the state of the tooth pulp. This is important as it shows whether or not you have enough bone between your teeth for optimal support. After this, the dentist will trim the affected areas of your teeth, which will leave you with proper alignment and bite. In about half an hour the procedure is complete at the dentist's office depending on the amount of work required.
