Over the years, your teeth may lose their shape and become jagged, rough, or chipped at the edges. If your smile has lost its shape, the solution for your teeth may be tooth contouring and reshaping, a treatment that's available from your dentist in St. Petersburg, FL Dr. Rosemarie Márquez.
What Is Tooth Contouring & Reshaping?
Your tooth enamel is strong and resilient when healthy, but it is still vulnerable to damage from eating, tooth grinding, injuries, and enamel erosion. Chips and bumps along the edges of a tooth are very visible—especially when they're showing in the front of your mouth. Tooth contouring and reshaping allow your St. Petersburg, FL dentist to restore a natural and attractive shape to your teeth.
Dental Contours Matter
If you take a close look at the details and nuances of a perfect “Hollywood smile,” you’ll notice that the edges are smooth and slightly rounded. Each tooth is also uniformly sized so that one tooth isn't longer than another. The way your teeth are shaped and contoured can also make your smile look more feminine or masculine.
Issues that Tooth Contouring and Reshaping Can Fix
These are a few cases where you might want to opt for this solution:
- Rough ridges on the surfaces of the teeth.
- Pointed or jagged front teeth.
- Square or box-shaped teeth.
- Two front teeth that are longer than the others.
- Minor gaps between the teeth (contoured after a dental bonding treatment).
