Dental Contouring in New York City

What is Dental Contouring?

Dental contouring is commonly referred to as tooth reshaping and it the procedure is exactly what it sounds like. Dental contouring involves the removal of some of the tooth enamel and this allows teeth to be shaped for improved esthetics. Tooth shaping and composite bonding are often recommended together and can make a significant difference in one’s smile.

Mal Braverman DMD FADFE has years of experience with tooth reshaping and his New York City cosmetic dentistry office is your first stop to a better smile.

WHAT IS THE PROCESS FOR TOOTH RESHAPING?

The process for dental contouring simply involves x-rays, sanding, and polishing. First, x-rays are taken to ensure that your teeth are healthy and that you are a suitable candidate for tooth reshaping. Once the x-rays are taken, the teeth that need reshaping will be highlighted for the sanding. The surface and sides of the teeth are then carefully sanded to remove a small portion of enamel. Finally, the newly shaped teeth are smoothed out and then polished.

HOW DO I KNOW IF TOOTH RESHAPING AND DENTAL CONTOURING IS RIGHT FOR ME?

Tooth reshaping is not recommended for people who have serious oral health issues or for those who need extensive cosmetic work. Dental contouring is ideal for you have small or minor tooth imperfections.
