What is Teeth Recontouring?
Teeth recontouring is a simple and pain free cosmetic treatment designed to smooth out minor chips and imperfections in your teeth. This treatment reshapes the teeth to make them more even and aesthetically pleasing. The treatment involves removing a very small amount of tooth enamel to change the shape, surface, or length of a tooth.
Why might Teeth Recontouring be needed?
If you have small imperfections in your teeth and want to feel more confident in your smile, teeth recontouring may be a good treatment option for you. This non-invasive, cosmetic treatment can help improve the overall look and balance of your smile, helping you feel proud to show off your smile. This treatment can also improve oral health by eliminating crevices where plaque and tartar can accumulate.
