what is tooth contouring?

Tooth contouring changes the length, shape or appearance of the tooth and creates a beautiful smile. Tooth contouring, or reshaping, gently removes small amounts of the enamel for uniform teeth that improve the appearance of the smile. Dr. Jason Kasarsky, a Manhattan implant and cosmetic dentist, offers tooth contouring as a quick method to improve the smile. Tooth contouring can adjust the length of the teeth, fix bulges or pits in the enamel, and smooth jagged teeth, small chips, and irregular tooth shapes. It can also remove crevices and overlaps between teeth. Teeth reshaping is not recommended for those with substantial teeth imperfections, such as deep fractures. This cosmetic dental procedure is a fast, simple treatment that showcases immediate results.

how does tooth contouring work?

Tooth contouring can be performed without an anesthetic, but local anesthesia or numbing cream may be used to help the patient with discomfort or anxiety. Prior to the procedure, X-rays will check the location of the tooth’s pulp and the thickness of the teeth’s enamel. If the pulp is too close to the tooth’s surface or the enamel is too thin, the dentist may not be able to perform teeth reshaping. During the procedure, the dentist will use a sanding disc or dental drill to smooth out any imperfections in the tooth. After smoothing the tooth and creating the desired tooth shape, the dentist will polish the teeth, completing the procedure.

how much does tooth contouring Cost?

As with other dental procedures, the cost of tooth contouring varies among patients based on the amount of work needed to meet cosmetic goals. Typically, patients can expect to pay $50 - $300 per tooth. 

tooth Contouring FAQs

Will My Speech Change after tooth contouring?

Contouring the teeth may help improve patient’s speech by adjusting the size, look, and feel of the teeth. Patients who have a drastic change in the appearance of their teeth through additional procedures such as bonding, may need time adjust to eating and talking. 

is there Special Care After Contouring?

Although there is no special care associated with teeth reshaping it is recommended that patients should care for their teeth as they normally would. This includes a regular dental hygiene routine of brushing, flossing, and professional cleanings. 

Will the Shape of my teeth Change after contouring?

Once enamel is removed from the tooth, it will not naturally re-grow. If the patient decides later that they want to increase the length or size of the tooth, dental bonding or dental veneers can be considered.
