Dental recontouring, or the reshaping of teeth, is a procedure that involves the removal of minute amounts of tooth enamel to change the shape of your teeth. Recontouring can adjust a tooth's shape, length or surface. This minimally invasive procedure is a painless as relatively quick procedure with immediately visible results.
Recontouring can provide a great solution for a number of problems including:
- Smoothing out uneven enamel
- Fixing small chips
- Adjusting uneven teeth
- Removing small tooth overlap
While recontouring is a great tool for fixing minor problems, for more complex issues, a slightly more invasive or comprehensive solution might be needed such as minimal tooth movement orthodontics (Invisalign), bonding, or porcelain veneers. Speak with Dr. Goodlin, Dr. Shasha and the members of the team at Smiles Dental in Aurora, to find out if recontouring might be the right option for you!
