Get Your Teeth Into Better Shape!

added on: June 3, 2014 | By: Dr. Nancy Tobin

Have you ever thought of your teeth as being either misshapen or too big? If you have, “tooth reshaping” is a cosmetic procedure that involves the removal of small amounts of enamel in order to minimize shape imperfections. For instance, the points of upper canine teeth can be blunted somewhat to eliminate their fang-like appearance. Tooth reshaping (or “enamel recontouring”) can alter the shape, length, contour, position of a tooth and its relationship to adjacent teeth. The technique can also be used to reshape chipped, overlapped, or fractured teeth, or to minimize the appearance of crowding. All this can be accomplished without removing substantial amounts of tooth structure. Only one office visit and no anesthesia are required.
