Tooth Contouring, Austin TX

Tooth reshaping or dental contouring is a cosmetic dentistry procedure that deals with subtle changes to the teeth. Because sometimes little changes can make a big difference. With just a few small procedures we can often help you achieve that look that you thought was impossible.

Imperfections or problems like slightly overlapping or irregularly shaped teeth, tiny chips in the teeth, or excessively pointy teeth on the side of your mouth can often be fixed with a little tooth reshaping and dental contouring. Also dental contouring can improve overall dental health by removing crevices or overlaps between teeth in which plaque or tartar can accumulate

What is Dental Contouring?

Tooth reshaping, 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. Sometimes just a few millimeters of reduction in the right places can dramatically improve the appearance of teeth. The process is often combined with bonding, a cosmetic dentistry treatment that uses tooth-colored composite material to sculpt and shape the teeth. Dental contouring is considered a very conservative approach to changing the appearance of your teeth.
