Learn About Tooth Contouring & Reshaping

Tooth contouring and reshaping is a recommended procedure for those with a healthy smile and who diligently practice oral hygiene. Within a few months, you can significantly improve your smile through dental implants, but for those in need of minor adjustments, in one short visit you can experience tooth contouring and reshaping.

The Right Candidate

Ideal patients for this procedure include those with crooked, chipped or irregularly shaped teeth. While these are only minor problems, they can affect your self-esteem. Through the process of tooth contouring and reshaping, teeth can be altered in length, shape or position. Once completed, patients may notice that contouring and reshaping improved their bite.

How the Procedure Works

Once X-rays have been conducted to evaluate the size and location of the teeth, the dentists at Lindner Dental will discuss the entire process before moving forward.

This pain-free process includes the removal of a small amount of enamel with a dental drill, allowing the dentist to shape the teeth so they properly align with neighboring teeth. It is most commonly used on highly visible teeth that have trivial, yet evident cosmetic flaws.
