Cosmetic Re-Contouring and Re-Shaping
Cosmetic re-contouring or re-shaping is an option used by dentists on healthy tooth structure for the purpose of correcting small imperfections by slightly altering the position, shape or length of a tooth. Since only a very small amount of tooth structure is involved, it can be achieved without anesthetic.
It is common for bonding to be used with this procedure to achieve the full result. So you can be assured of a beautiful, natural-looking smile makeover.
Many patients are unhappy with their smile due to unevenness of their teeth. The unevenness can be due to some teeth having a different length as a result of faulty eruption patterns or simply a tooth having small chips at the edge that makes it look uneven. Some patient complains of having vampire teeth making their smile so harsh and ugly that they have stopped smiling all together.
The length, the size and the contours of the teeth can be minimally altered to get desired effect.
