Cosmetic Tooth Contouring

What Is Cosmetic Tooth Contouring?

Dr. Bhojani will perform a careful oral exam before starting the procedure. The areas that need to be reduced will be marked precisely. With a sanding instrument or small polishing tool, he will skillfully reshape your teeth. When the tooth contouring process is finished, the surface is then polished, and the edges are smoothed out. If necessary, dental bonding in Bloomingdale, IL will be used to further enhance your results. Without the bonding treatment, cosmetic tooth contouring is usually completed in an hour or less.

Benefits of Cosmetic Tooth Contouring

Tooth contouring is used to treat several cosmetic imperfections, including:

  • Reducing the size of teeth that appear to be too large
  • Smoothing away cracks and chips in tooth enamel
  • Leveling sharp or pointed teeth

In addition to the aesthetic benefits, cosmetic tooth contouring can also improve your oral health. Smoother, more level teeth are easier to clean and maintain with proper dental hygiene. For some patients with bruxism or malocclusions, Dr. Bhojani can make tiny bite adjustments using tooth contouring.
