Is Dental Contouring For You?

Have you ever looked at the shape of your teeth and wished you could make some changes for a smile that better harmonizes with your face? Perhaps your teeth display some minor visual concerns like sharp tips or an asymmetrical smile line. Fortunately, we offer dental contouring to gently reshape your smile. Patients whose smiles could use a gentle re-sculpting by removing a very tiny amount of tooth tissue may find this cosmetic treatment suits their needs wonderfully. Not quite sure?

Contouring Is Right For You If…

  • You want to improve the shape, size, or length of your teeth. Some patients find that their teeth develop in a shape that seems awkward and that does not complement their facial features. Others find that a handful of their teeth are longer than the rest of their smile, which makes for an uneven appearance that would look more beautiful if streamlined. Or, your teeth may appear too wide or may overlap one another, which we may also address with dental contouring.
  • You are looking for a straightforward, efficient cosmetic treatment that is easy on the wallet. Fortunately, contouring is known as a very budget-friendly treatment that is equally easy on your mouth. In addition, you will typically not require any type of numbing because contouring is gentle.
  • Your teeth display problems that require the gentle polishing away of very small amounts of tooth tissue. For example, your teeth may feel quite sharp or look pointy – we can smooth this with contouring. We may also suggest dental contouring to improve textural problems, which is often a requirement for pitted teeth. Or, you may suffer from a tooth outline that appears quite jagged or rough. The goal of contouring is to create a smooth, beautifully sculpted, uniform smile that you feel proud to display to the world around you.
