Tooth Reshaping & Contouring

If you have chipped or uneven teeth, tooth reshaping and contouring is an easy and non-invasive way to even out your smile. There are two components to reshaping teeth: dental bonding and dental contouring. During the tooth contouring process, your Katy, TX dentist will remove enamel where it’s not needed and use tools to shape the tooth. With dental bonding, your dentist will apply resin to any gaps or areas where more enamel is needed and will shape it to fit the tooth.

Benefits of Tooth Reshaping from Your Katy Dentist

  • The procedure is one of the most cost-effective ways to repair an uneven smile.
  • It’s quick, taking place during just one appointment for about half an hour to an hour.
  • Tooth reshaping is pain-free and has a very short recovery time.
  • You can drive yourself home afterward and resume normal eating as soon as the anesthesia wears off.
  • It will boost your confidence and change the look of your smile for the better.

Tooth Reshaping Procedure

Your Katy, TX dentist will begin by numbing the area with a local anesthetic, as the procedure can cause some tooth sensitivity. He or she will then shape the tooth as needed, removing enamel and adding resin until you have a full, even smile.

Reshaped teeth are prone to chipping and staining without proper care. Do not use your reshaped teeth to bite any hard foods or to chew things like nails or pen caps. Avoid foods and drinks that can stain your teeth, such as coffee or red wine. A proper oral hygiene routine will keep your reshaped teeth in great condition for years to come.
