Are you looking for a little balance in your smile?
Dental recontouring, or the reshaping of teeth, is a procedure that involves the removal
of minute amounts of tooth enamel to change the shape of your teeth.
Recontouring can adjust a tooth's shape, length or surface. This minimally invasive procedure is a painless as relatively quick procedure with immediately visible results.
Recontouring can provide a great solution for a number of problems including:
Smoothing out uneven enamel
Fixing small chips
Adjusting uneven teeth
Removing small tooth overlap
The full procedure will involve an initial consultation appointment with Dr. Goodlin to determine whether or not you are a good candidate for recontouring. An X-ray will be taken to determine whether your enamel is thick enough to undergo the procedure.
While recontouring is a great tool for fixing minor problems, for more complex issues, a slightly more invasive or comprehensive solution might be needed such as minimal tooth movement orthodontics (Invisalign), bonding, or porcelain veneers. Speak with Dr. Goodlin, Dr. Shasha and the members of the team at Smiles Dental in Aurora, to find out if recontouring might be the right option for you!
