Tooth Reshaping & Contouring
One of the more conservative and worthwhile treatments we do in our office is the reshaping of teeth.
Whether a tooth does not have the correct shape from development or fracturing, a little contouring with sanding discs can make all the difference in a smile. Without any Novocaine or anesthetic, a tooth can be reshaped in an esthetic manner; additionally, this reshaping can limit any further fracturing of the tooth.
Like a 2×4 piece of lumber that may have splinters at its end, often a tooth will chip and wear over time; smoothing down these edges makes a tooth less likely to continue to chip and can also give it a more pleasing appearance.
Watch how tooth reshaping helped one of our patients achieve a beautiful smile:
Additionally, as we mature, our teeth often shift and move, even after orthodontic care. Rather than redo the orthodontics (often an 18-month commitment), here at ClevelandSmiles we can make the teeth look like they’ve never moved by reshaping the teeth. Composite materials and/or veneers can be used with the recontouring to finish the look. So in just one or two appointments, your smile can be perfect again – or perfect for the first time.
Please give us a call at (440) 461-1003 and/or send us a photo of your smile to explore your options with “tooth reshaping!”
