All You Need to Know About Teeth Reshaping and Contouring
Posted on 1/10/2022 by Pacific Maxillofacial Center
Dental contouring and teeth reshaping are cosmetic dentistry procedures that seek to perfect a patient's smile. Those who think that they have problems or imperfections such as small chips in the teeth, overlapping teeth, excessively pointing cuspids, or irregularly shaped teeth can have our dentists fix their problem through tooth reshaping and dental contouring.
Dental contouring is also known by many as tooth reshaping. It is a fast and painless cosmetic dentistry technique that involves removing small amounts of the enamel to change the surface, length, or shape of one or more teeth. Most times, we may combine the process with bonding. It is crucial to note that tooth reshaping only corrects minor imperfections, and it is not suitable for complete smile makeovers.
What Does Tooth Reshaping Entail?
The procedure which is often performed using abrasion techniques requires the use of X-ray machines before the commencement of reshaping and contouring. We do this to ensure that your teeth are healthy enough to undergo the procedure successfully.
To highlight areas that will require sculpting, our dentists will carefully mark all areas that need their attention. They will then use a sanding instrument to minimize or eliminate imperfections on the surface of our teeth. The final steps of the procedure will involve the smoothing and polishing of your teeth.
The Benefits of Tooth Reshaping and Contouring
Tooth reshaping and dental contouring have numerous benefits. The painless procedure which requires no anesthesia improves the health of our teeth by eliminating minor overlaps. It also gets rid of plaque and tartar buildup, decreasing the risks of gum disease and tooth decay. The inexpensive way to improve your smile is also a possible substitute for braces because it eliminates minor teeth overlapping.
