Aesthetic Tooth Contouring

Aesthetic tooth contouring is a procedure to correct crooked teeth, chipped teeth, cracked teeth or even overlapping teeth effectively. Aesthetic dental contouring is commonly used to alter the length, shape or position of your teeth. Contouring teeth may also help correct small problems with bite. Aesthetic contouring of smile line is ideal for candidates with normal healthy teeth, but who want subtle changes to their smile.

People having chipped tooth, worn edges, or shallow pits or grooves in the tooth enamel that stand in the way of having a perfect smile. An ideal candidate would have minor imperfections in their teeth such as small chips, minor unevenness, slight overlaps, shallowly pitted surfaces, or worn biting areas in their teeth. If you suffer from one or more of these problems -- even to the extent of a minor fracture or overlap -- they all can be fixed using a procedure known as Aesthetic Contouring of Smile Line.

The goal of tooth contouring and reshaping is to change the size or shape of the teeth so that slightly damaged or out of proportion teeth are brought back into alignment with the rest. In essence, as a cosmetic procedure, it is most often performed on the upper central, lateral, and canine teeth. Beyond the outward benefits, there are often oral health gains too, as smoothing the teeth and repairing overlaps can make them easier to clean, reducing the risk of affecting the cavities and gum disease.
