Tooth reshaping, also called dental contouring, is a cosmetic dental procedure that’s performed in just one office visit. The procedure is often combined with composite resin bonding, another cosmetic procedure that uses a color-matched, light-curable resin to shape teeth.
“Tooth reshaping and dental contouring are cosmetic dentistry procedures that deal with subtle changes to the teeth,” says Kimberly Harms, DDS, consumer advisor and spokesperson for the American Dental Association. “But sometimes little changes can make a big difference.”
Reshaping and dental contouring is ideal for those with relatively minor instances of overlapping, crooked, uneven or abnormally shaped teeth. In some cases, reshaping can serve as an alternative to braces with faster results and a lower price tag.
