What is cosmetic contouring?
Cosmetic contouring is the reshaping of a patient’s own teeth. This process involves removal of a very small amount of tooth structure to help achieve a more desirable appearance. Chipped or fractured areas are smoothed out and specific angles or edges can be rounded or squared to alter the way your smile looks.
What can Cosmetic Contouring do for me?
Contouring can create better alignment or create a more feminine or masculine appearance. It is sometimes done to prevent chipped areas from becoming worse. Re-contouring of the teeth is generally done with no discomfort to the patient and no anaesthetic. Often it is done in conjunction with bleaching as a very conservative and inexpensive approach to a beautiful smile.
