How Can It Improve Your Smile?

Dental contouring can alter the form of your teeth, giving them a longer or shorter appearance or enhancing their balance. It can additionally correct minor imperfections such as chips, cracks or overlapping teeth, improve the alignment of your teeth and create a more harmonious smile.

In certain instances, dental reshaping might be a preliminary step for bonding or veneer procedures.

Our Contouring Process

Here’s what you can expect:

During your initial consultation with Dr. Kerbaugh, we will discuss your goals and examine your teeth to determine if dental contouring is right for you. Next, using a dental drill and polishing instruments, we will carefully reshape your teeth to achieve the desired look. Finally, after reshaping your teeth, we will smooth out any rough edges and polish them for a natural-looking finish.

What Should I Expect After Dental Contouring?

Following the procedure, you may notice some slight sensitivity in your teeth for a few days. This is common and typically dissipates within a week. Dr. Kerbaugh may suggest the use of a desensitizing toothpaste during this period to minimize any discomfort.

We also recommend avoiding hard or sticky foods for a day following the procedure to prevent potential damage to your teeth.

It is also important to note that dental contouring can only be used to make minor changes to your teeth. If you’re seeking more significant or dramatic changes, you may want to consider other options, such as braces or veneers.
