Tooth Makeover

While body reshaping may involve strenuous exercise and/or modification surgery, tooth reshaping is a relatively easy matter.  It involves removing small amounts of enamel to eliminate or minimize imperfections.  For instance, the points of upper canine teeth can be blunted somewhat to eliminate their fang-like appearance.  Tooth reshaping (or enamel recontouring) can also help improve the look of a smile by altering the shape, length, contour or position of a tooth and its relationship to adjacent teeth.  The technique can be used to reshaped chipped, overlapped or fractured teeth, as well as to minimize the appearance of crowding.  In addition, tooth reshaping may be undertaken to correct developmental imperfections and abnormalities, such as pitting and grooves in the enamel.

Tooth reshaping, or contouring is one of few instant treatments now available in cosmetic dentistry.  This procedure corrects crooked teeth, chipped teeth, cracked teeth or even overlapping teeth in just one session.  We are dedicated to using the best technology, utilizing the best materials and continually improving our abilities through continuing education and training.  Our office hours are Monday – Thursday 8 AM – 5 PM.  Contact our office at 562-425-5511 to schedule your next appointment.

P.S. Tooth structure may be augmented through the cosmetic procedure known as “bonding” which closes gaps to render teeth more attractive.
