Don’t Like the Shape of Your Teeth? Dental Contouring Can Help

Posted on: September 6, 2018

Thinking you want to change the shape of your teeth? Dental contouring is also known as dental shaping and is a simple dental procedure used to help redefine the shape of one or more of your teeth. Professional dental contouring is a solution worth looking into, as changing the shape of your teeth can give you more confidence. Due to the many cosmetic dentistry advances now available, there is simply no reason for you to feel self-conscious about the shape of your teeth. Know that your oral health needs to be in good condition before a dentist will perform any tooth-reshaping services for you.

The shape of teeth

While the shape of our teeth is, for the most part, related to genetics, a tooth’s shape can also be altered due to everyday living, i.e., chips and breaks. The shape of someone’s teeth is not only aesthetically important, but when teeth are not in their correct shape, they can also cause bad bite issues. It is necessary for teeth to be properly shaped, as the overall health of teeth is directly connected to the good overall health of one’s mouth.

Dental contouring

Dental contouring is a great choice for those who are looking to fix one or more of their minor tooth imperfections. Contouring services can fix many tooth imperfections, including chipped teeth, teeth that are overlapping, teeth that have ragged edges, teeth that are showing minor wear due to a bad bite, teeth that are pointy and teeth that are crooked and therefore not in their proper place. Dental contouring may be used with other dental procedures in order to provide a patient with the optimal results.

The contouring process requires an experienced dentist to carefully sculpt the tooth using a special dental appliance. The sculpting will make the tooth more aesthetically pleasing, the goal of dental contouring.
