Tooth reshaping treatment 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. Teeth reshaping is one of the most convenient, cost-effective options for fixing chipped, uneven or poorly aligned teeth to create a more attractive smile. Dentists often combine shaping or contouring teeth with a treatment called bonding, which involves applying resin to improve the overall appearance of the teeth. The front teeth are the best candidates for reshaping and bonding. Therefore to reshape or do teeth contouring a dentist gently removes tooth enamel with a laser or drill. The dentist X-rays the teeth to check the location and amount of pulp. Next he or she trims misshapen areas, shortening excessively long teeth or altering badly shaped teeth to even them out for proper bite and alignment. The teeth are then smoothed and polished. Reshaped and bonded teeth require good aftercare to maintain their attractive appearance. Of all dental restorations, bonded teeth are the most at risk of chipping and staining. Patients should avoid chewing their fingernails, biting on pens, eating hard foods and opening things with their teeth to reduce the risks of chipping. Teeth reshaping can provide a major confidence boost by fixing noticeably uneven teeth. Compared to braces and other orthodontic work, tooth contouring and bonding are among the least time-consuming and cheapest cosmetic dentistry options. A dentist can give you a breakdown of the treatment options and costs based on your needs.
