Getting Your Teeth Into Shape

added on: January 30, 2014 | By: Dr. Nancy Tobin

It only takes an irregularity or defect as seemingly slight as a small chip or worn edge on a front tooth to significantly detract from a smile. Fortunately, the dentist may be able to restore the smile to its former beauty through contouring and reshaping. This cosmetic procedure involves changing the size or shape of the irregular tooth, thereby restoring it to its former appearance, The procedure typically entails one office visit, during which the dentist uses various tools to carefully polish small areas of the surface enamel. Then, the edges of the newly reshaped tooth are smoothed. After contouring, the treated tooth fits in better with adjacent teeth in terms of both shape and size.
