For patients with minor dental irregularities, “dental contouring” or “reshaping” provides a relatively easy remedy. This cosmetic procedure involves removing small amounts of enamel to minimize or alleviate imperfections. For instance, chipped or fractured areas can be smoothed out, and specific angles or edges can be rounded or squared. Tooth reshaping can also be undertaken to alter the shape, length, contour, or position of a tooth and its relationship to adjacent teeth to improve the look of a smile. The technique can also be used to reshape overlapped teeth, as well as to minimize the appearance of crowding. Dental contouring may even be used to correct developmental imperfections and abnormalities such as pitting and grooves in the enamel.
