Cosmetic contouring is a simple procedure in which the teeth are reshaped with finely ground diamonds.
Contouring is used to quickly enhance the appearance of your teeth by giving the sense of uniformity and alignment. It is a fast and economic way to augment your smile, and an excellent finishing touch to improve the shape of your teeth following other treatments including veneers and bonding.
Cosmetic contouring may be a treatment option for you if you have small chips or fractures in your teeth, minor crowding, sharp or uneven tooth lengths.
