Improve Your Smile

Is there a small defect in your smile that always draws your eye in the mirror? A chip in a front tooth, some worn edges, or shallow pits or grooves in the tooth enamel are all minor issues, but they do stand in the way of having a perfect smile. If you suffer from one or more of these problems — even to the extent of a minor fracture or overlap — they all can be fixed using a procedure known as tooth contouring and reshaping1.

The dentists at Boca Perio Implants have had extensive training and experience in the areas of tooth contouring and reshaping. We also utilize the industry’s highest quality materials and standards of care. This means you can relax with the knowledge that you are in safe hands!

About the Procedure

Using a polishing instrument, we will remove small amounts of surface enamel of one or more teeth to compensate for the imperfections. Followed up with a smoothing and polishing of all the surrounding teeth, this quick, painless, and inexpensive procedure can make a big difference in your smile. Because it is relatively inexpensive and non-invasive, it is a good place to start changing your smile to the one that you have always wanted.

Frequently Asked Questions

How long does dental contouring last?

Dental contouring can last indefinitely, but it is not a permanent procedure.

How much does it cost to reshape a tooth?

Reshaping a tooth typically costs between $100 and $300 per tooth, depending on the extent of the reshaping that is required.

Does contouring damage your teeth?

There is a very low risk of damage to teeth during the contouring process, and there are few side effects associated with it. Working with a periodontist significantly reduces the risk of damage of an already low-risk procedure.

What are teeth reshaping side effects?

Most people experience some minor sensitivity to hot and cold after the procedure, but this typically subsides within a week or two.

Can you reshape teeth after braces?

It is possible to reshape teeth after braces, but the results may not be as dramatic.
