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.
