Do you want to make permanent changes to the appearance of your smile at an inexpensive price? Well, you can when you come to our practice for a tooth contouring procedure. Our dentists can change the shape of your teeth for a healthier, more beautiful smile.

A tooth contouring procedure involves the removal of small amounts of enamel to alter the shape of teeth, usually for cosmetic purposes. After taking X-rays to make sure your enamel is thick enough, we will use either a laser or a drill to remove this tissue and sculpt your smile. This procedure is quick, non-invasive, painless, and inexpensive.

Tooth contouring can help with cosmetic flaws like:

  • Chips
  • Overly long or large teeth
  • Extremely pointed canines
  • Irregularly-shaped teeth

Tooth contouring can also be used to fix other dental problems like:

  • TMJ disorder
  • Bruxism (teeth grinding and clenching)
  • Crooked or crowded teeth
  • A bad bite

Even though tooth contouring can only be used to make small changes, sometimes these changes can make a big difference in the appearance and function of your smile. Call Musso Family Dentistry today to learn more about the benefits of a tooth contouring procedure.
