What Happens When We Contour Your Teeth?

Posted on 12/23/2021 by Dr. Frank K. Sioda
What Happens When We Contour Your Teeth?Dental contouring is a cosmetic procedure in which we reshape your teeth. It can be used to remove imperfections from cracked, chipped, or misaligned teeth. Small flaws in your teeth can easily be filed away. Removing these imperfections helps to restore confidence in your smile.

Why We Professionally Contour Teeth

We use specialized tools to contour your teeth. With the utmost care, we remove small amounts of enamel to reshape or round off the tooth. We are trained to know exactly how much we can safely remove while still maintaining the integrity of your enamel.

At first glance, it may seem that it is relatively easy to reshape or file your own teeth at home. However, there is a risk that someone trying this at home could remove too much enamel, which is the outside protective layer of your teeth. If you try this at home and remove excessive enamel, you will damage your teeth. Not only that, but you will also have increased tooth sensitivities, and your enamel will not grow back. It is important to contact our office if you are interested in having your teeth reshaped. We can talk about your goals for reshaping your teeth as well as help you understand what is feasible for your specific circumstance.
