Who Can Benefit from Cosmetic Tooth Recontouring? | Smile Studio - Dr. Mal Braverman

Last updated 6 years ago

Some people who have dental imperfections don't need extensive cosmetic dentistry services in order to achieve stunning smiles. With a simple visit to the cosmetic dentist, many patients can have small problems fixed with cosmetic tooth recontouring. 

You may benefit from cosmetic tooth recontouring if you have:

Long Teeth

If your teeth are overlong and make your mouth appear disproportionate, you may benefit from cosmetic tooth recontouring. This cosmetic dentistry procedure alters the length of teeth by gently removing layers of enamel. If your canine teeth or other front teeth are too long, ask your cosmetic dentist if tooth recontouring is right for you.

Small Chips or Cracks

Teeth can become cracked or chipped through daily living; if you have a small defect in a tooth, recontouring can help. Your cosmetic dentist can simply file away the enamel where the chip is located, giving you a perfect smile again. You won't need to have dental veneers or other cosmetic services to correct the problem because tooth recontouring is often sufficient.

Pits or Grooves in the Enamel

If your teeth have grooves or pits in the enamel, a visit to the cosmetic dentist for tooth recontouring can remove these imperfections. Enamel can easily become grooved or pitted by consuming acidic foods and beverages. Recontouring is generally painless because it leaves the pulp unaffected, so it's incredibly easy to get the look you want.

Irregular Tooth Shape

Some people's teeth are irregularly shaped or uneven because of the spacing or placement of the teeth. Cosmetic tooth recontouring can correct the shape or spacing of the teeth, which will in turn allow for easier oral hygiene and an improved overall appearance. Ask your cosmetic dentist if recontouring can be considered in your case instead of more invasive approaches.
