Also known as tooth sculpting or reshaping, tooth re-contouring is a minimally invasive procedure which is used to alter the length, shape and surface of your teeth. The procedure is relatively quick in comparison to other dental treatments.
Re-contouring can typically be used to improve the following:
- Pointy teeth
- Fractured or chipped teeth
- Grooves or holes in teeth
- Cracked teeth
- Crooked teeth
- Uneven or overlapping teeth
- Rough edges on the bottom of your teeth
The procedure for tooth re-contouring involves taking x-rays in order to determine the strength and structure of your teeth and the margin they have for improvement. Our dentist will then use a variety of dental tools to re-shape your teeth to the desired look, giving you a perfect natural looking smile.
All our orthodontic patients have a tooth re-contouring option included in the price of their treatment. We do offer stand alone tooth re-contouring and the prices are dependant on your individual needs.
