What Is Aesthetic Tooth Contouring And How Is It Accomplished?

Tooth contouring is a simple, painless procedure done to correct minor teeth imperfections, such as:

  • Small chips
  • Uneven teeth
  • Irregularly shaped teeth
  • Overlaps
  • Worn areas
  • Pitted surfaces

Aesthetic tooth contouring may also help resolve minor occlusal or biting issues. The process may involve the reshaping of a tooth or removal of small amounts of enamel to achieve a beautiful outcome 

Generally, aesthetic tooth contouring is done to change the shape, length or position of a tooth. A comprehensive exam, including dental radiographs and tooth by tooth check, is necessary to detect other oral problems before the procedure takes place. Dr. Katie Reardon Skinner will assess the appearance and condition of your teeth to learn if aesthetic tooth contouring is the right treatment for you.  

Why Choose Aesthetic Tooth Contouring?

Aesthetic tooth contouring or reshaping of teeth is a very routine procedure in dentistry. Most of the time, an anesthetic agent is not necessary as aesthetic tooth contouring is a minimally-invasive procedure. It may take one to three visits before you see a difference, depending on the problem you’re experiencing and the results you would like to see. Our dentist, Dr. Katie Reardon Skinner, will provide thorough post-operative instructions to help you maximize your results.
