Easily Reshape Your Smile
Teeth contouring can be very, very helpful for patients who have really large teeth or poorly shaped teeth. Sometimes what we do is we recontour them and bring them closer to the proportion, the proper proportion for their face. But also we can use recontouring if patients have some unsightly stains on their teeth. We use different techniques to remineralize the tooth structure, and then we can recontour some of the brown or darker stains and polish those. And in many cases, we can eliminate some of the darker stains on the teeth. So tooth contouring can be done for many, many reasons. Patients may have very sharp pointy canine teeth. We can round those just ever so slightly and with no harm to the tooth structure whatsoever. But it can be done sometimes very, very gently and very carefully.
