Am I Stuck with the Shape of My Teeth?

Are you unhappy with the shape of your teeth? Do you have a tooth that is too sharp and jagged, or does one canine look drastically different from the canine on the other side of your mouth?

You don’t have to be unhappy with the shape of your teeth and the appearance of your smile for the rest of your life. In fact, there are four main treatment options available to alter the shape of your teeth.

Tooth Recontouring

Tooth recontouring is also known as reshaping. This process is relatively simple, and it involves removing small portions of the tooth enamel on your tooth or teeth. This can improve upon the surface, shape, and length of your tooth.

Dental Veneers

Veneers are thin, custom-created shell-like casings that are made out of tooth-colored materials, including resin or porcelain. They will be bonded to the front surface of the teeth in order to improve the shape, color, and appearance.

Dental Crowns

A dental crown is a cap that is shaped like a tooth that is placed over the tooth that you want restored. Crowns are cemented into place to cover the entire visible portion. They are typically made out of porcelain or porcelain that is fused to metal in order to restore the natural shape, appearance, and contour of the tooth.

Dental Bonding

One of the easiest procedures to change a tooth shape, this process involves putting a tooth-colored resin to the surface of the teeth, and it is then hardened with a special light to bond the material onto the tooth. It is best suited for small issues, including chips, rough edges, and gaps.

All of these options will differ when it comes to cost and the amount of time the procedure takes to complete. Contact us today to see what option is right for you.
