Tooth reshaping and contouring is a procedure to correct crooked teeth, chipped or irregularly shaped teeth or even overlapping teeth in a single session. Tooth reshaping and contouring is commonly used by our dentists to alter the length, shape or position of your teeth. Contouring teeth may also help correct small problems with bite. At Cape Fear Smiles, bonding can be combined with tooth reshaping to create a greater effect.
This procedure is ideal for candidates with normal, healthy teeth but who want subtle changes to their smile. Dr. Norma Cortez, Dr. Melanie Goforth-Moore and Dr. Ronald Robinson will take X-rays to evaluate the size and location of the pulp of each tooth; this scan will ensure that there’s enough bone between the teeth to support them.
