Cosmetic Dentistry: Teeth Contouring & Reshaping

We help ensure your teeth look their best with contouring and reshaping.

If you want to improve your oral hygiene and achieve a better-looking smile, teeth contouring and reshaping might be right for you!

Contouring and reshaping can even out misaligned teeth, making them appear straighter and better aligned. For example, if one of your teeth overlaps with other teeth, is too long, or just doesn’t look quite the way you want it to, that can often be fixed with our dental reshaping. Tooth enamel with bumps or pits can often benefit from tooth contouring, which is limited to minor procedures that are aesthetic in nature so as not to remove too much tooth enamel (which could weaken the tooth).

During your initial consultation and exam with one of our dentists, we’ll discuss which tooth imperfections, such as a chip, you’d like assessed for potential dental contouring or reshaping. We’ll also examine the state of your overall dental health. This may include X-rays, followed by teeth cleaning. After we’ve determined that the tooth and/or teeth you’d like worked on are healthy and capable of sustaining the procedure, we’ll schedule an appointment for the procedure.

What to expect the day of:

Since these are non-invasive procedures, pain medication, and numbing agents aren’t normally necessary for tooth contouring and reshaping, which is often performed in conjunction with dental bonding. The process involves color matching any materials we’ll be using to your teeth, applying, and holding them in place. Once it cures, we’ll shape each treated tooth, clean, and polish them.

Because we’re experts in dental bonding and teeth contouring, most treatments only require a single appointment. And, when it’s done, you’ll leave the office with a fresh, new smile. 

In addition to fixing minor chips in your teeth, we can also use dental contouring and bonding to correct the appearance of teeth of varying lengths, teeth that are shaped incorrectly, and recessed gums. Other benefits of dental contouring and reshaping include:

  • Less tartar and plaque build-up on teeth
  • Reduced risk of infection
  • Less chance of developing tooth decay and gum disease

After your procedure, your smile will look better than ever, boosting confidence and making it easier to optimum oral health.

"I've had two appointments at Two Rivers recently. One for my periodic cleaning and the second for a filling. What struck me about this office wasn't just that they took all the proper precautions amid COVID, but that this crew was plowing ahead treating their patents as safely and responsibly as possible without the slightest outward hint of fear or worry. Everyone from the front desk was working happily and efficiently to get me through my appointment on schedule. My Hygienist, Kim was simply amazing as were Dr. Fig and his assistant, Sarah. They were about patient care and making sure my dental needs were taken care of in the most professional way possible. I recommend Two Rivers to anyone needing dental care at any time, but especially during this public health crisis, we find ourselves in now."
