Do you have flaws in your teeth that you wish to correct? Are you looking for ways that can help in achieving perfect pearly whites? Dental reshaping and contouring can help! They are conservative and inexpensive way of improving the appearance of your smile. These are not restorative but cosmetic procedures which help in making subtle changes in the teeth.
Tooth reshaping also known as dental contouring is a cosmetic technique which removes small amounts of tooth enamel for changing the shape, length, or surface of one or more teeth. Even slight change such as millimeters of reduction in right place can improve the appearance drastically. The reshaping procedure is combined with bonding which is the process of using tooth-colored composite material for sculpting and shaping the teeth.
Tooth reshaping is the abrasive technique that makes use of dental instruments. The dentist may take an X-ray before reshaping or contouring to figure out if your teeth are healthy. The dentist will mark the areas of teeth that need sculpting for highlighting. A sanding instrument will be used for eliminating imperfections from the surface of the teeth.
These procedures are ideal for people who need only minor adjustments and repairs for improving the look of the teeth.
