Dental Contouring in London

This treatment is often known as contouring of teeth. Tooth reshaping with us at Harley Street Smile Clinic involves careful adjustment to your teeth to create better shapes and sizes to enhance your smile. Tooth reshaping can either be done alone or in conjunction with porcelain veneers to correct other teeth shapes.

Tooth reshaping is where we contour/file a tooth into a slightly better shape to make it look better. The tips of your teeth can often be a little out of shape, or one tooth is a little longer than another, and filing the tip slightly, can improve the appearance of your tooth, and in some cases – the whole look of your smile.

What’s involved in tooth reshaping?

Tooth reshaping or contouring is a cosmetic dentistry procedure that involves removing small amounts of tooth enamel in order to realign the shape of the teeth. Before this procedure can begin, a dental x-ray is given to establish whether the teeth are healthy. If they are not, tooth reshaping cannot commence and our expert dentists will discuss alternative procedures that may help to achieve your perfect smile.

If you are eligible for tooth contouring, the process will begin with your dentist marking out the areas that require sculpting. They will then use a special dental instrument and sandpaper-like strips, to remove the imperfections from your teeth and contour the shape. This is followed by a routine smooth and polish.

Am I a good candidate for tooth reshaping?

Tooth reshaping is ideal for anyone who is unhappy with the small imperfections on their teeth. For example, if they have one or more teeth that are crooked or stick out, this can be solved with a simple reshaping procedure.

Does tooth reshaping hurt?

The tooth reshaping process is completely painless. Only the surface of the tooth is being filed off, which means you will not feel anything during the treatment.
