While you may work out regularly to keep your body in shape, are your teeth in shape or could they use some contouring? Tooth recontouring is a great way to address the following tooth concerns:

  • Crooked teeth
  • Jagged teeth
  • Teeth that are too long
  • Overlapping teeth
  • Pointy canine teeth
  • Minor wear on the biting surfaces

Dental contouring quickly, effectively, and painlessly rejuvenates the shape of your smile!

What Happens During the Dental Contouring Procedure?

Typically, only one office visit is needed for this procedure. Your appointment likely will last from 30 minutes to an hour.

As the first step, Dr. Olesen may take “before” photographs or X-rays. Then, she will sand away relatively small sections of the tooth enamel on the affected tooth. For the next step, Dr. Olesen will sculpt the tooth into a more aesthetically pleasing shape. Using sanding strips, she will shape the sides of the teeth using a back and forth motion.

When she completes the procedure, you will have teeth that are better matched in size and shape, giving a better overall appearance. Your teeth also will seem less crowded. By removing only a small amount of tooth enamel, you can smile with greater self-confidence!

Find Out If This Procedure Is Right for You

If you currently have some minor imperfections in your teeth that you’d like to address, contouring may be the procedure for you! Before we get started, we need to ensure that your teeth are healthy enough for the process. To determine that, Dr. Olesen will thoroughly examine your dental X-rays. She may suggest combining contouring with other procedures (e.g., crowns, whitening, or veneers) to achieve the best results.

Dr. Olesen will determine whether you are an ideal candidate for tooth recontouring. If you are, we’re confident that you will be delighted with your results.
