How tooth recontouring can transform your smile

Tooth recontouring is a cosmetic dentistry procedure that reshapes your teeth to give you a more esthetically pleasing smile. This technique can correct imperfections like uneven or overlapping teeth, chips, and cracked or worn-down teeth. Dr. Blanca Fernandez of Highland Dental Clinic in South Lakeland, Florida, will use a dental drill to carefully remove parts of the enamel to reshape and contour the affected tooth for cosmetic purposes.

What can tooth recontouring help me achieve?

The goal of tooth recontouring is to make your smile look better and improve its functionality. By altering the size and shape of your teeth, it can provide a better bite which can help you chew more efficiently. Additionally, by evening out any misalignments, it can reduce excessive wear on certain areas of the mouth, resulting in better oral health. Tooth recontouring is also a great way to improve the appearance of your smile without resorting to more invasive procedures such as veneers or crowns.

What is the process involved in tooth recontouring?

The first step in tooth recontouring is for Dr. Blanca Fernandez to examine and assess your teeth to determine whether this procedure is suitable for you. If she decides it will be beneficial, she will utilize special dental instruments to remove excess enamel and reshape the affected teeth into a more natural and balanced shape and size. This process can take anywhere from 30 minutes to an hour, depending on how much dental work needs to be done.

How do I determine if I am a proper candidate for cosmetic enamel recontouring?

You may be a good candidate for tooth recontouring if you have unusually shaped or small teeth.
