What is tooth reshaping and contouring?

Tooth reshaping and contouring is a cosmetic dental procedure in which the shape and size of crooked, misshaped or abnormally sized teeth is restored. The procedure may involve removal of some natural tooth structure, followed by re-contouring with a tooth colored filling material.

Why do I need tooth reshaping and contouring?

Chipped or crooked teeth not only ruin ones smile and facial appearance, but they also create functional problems like difficulty in eating and speaking. Furthermore, oral hygiene maintenance around abnormal teeth becomes very difficult as food tends to stick to them, thereby leading to a multitude of dental problems. Therefore, it is necessary to get your misshaped teeth restored to their normal shape and contours as soon as possible.

Who can benefit from tooth reshaping and contouring in Gainesville?

Tooth reshaping and contouring is performed to restore ones smile and facial aesthetics. You may be a candidate for tooth reshaping and contouring, if you have any of the following problems:

  • Crooked teeth
  • Excessive gaps between adjacent teeth
  • Excessively small teeth
  • Excessively large teeth
  • Teeth fractured due to trauma
  • If you require a complete smile makeover

How is tooth reshaping and contouring performed?

Tooth reshaping and contouring requires careful planning as well as excellent cosmetic skills. Therefore, Dr. Samant will first perform a detailed examination of your teeth, so that a detailed treatment plan may be formulated while considering your specific dental needs. There are several approaches to performing tooth reshaping:

  • Natural Tooth Reduction – if you have excessively large teeth which do not sit well with your facial features, Dr. Samant will reshape your teeth by removing some of the natural tooth structure. During tooth reduction, care is taken not to expose the underlying dentine and pulp, otherwise it can result in tooth sensitivity.
  • Tooth Bonding – if you seek cosmetic restoration of your crooked, chipped or excessively small teeth, then Dr. Samant will restore the shape and size of your teeth by applying a tooth colored restorative material on your teeth. This process is known as tooth bonding. Since composite restorative materials possess the ability to match the exact shade of your adjacent natural teeth, they are routinely used for the purpose of reshaping and recontouring of broken or fractured teeth.
  • Veneers – for extremely severe cases where very little natural tooth structure is remaining to support bonding, Dr. Samant may choose to apply porcelain or composite veneers on your teeth. Veneers are useful for the cosmetic restoration of the shape and size as well as excessive gaps between adjacent teeth.

Is tooth reshaping procedure painful?

Not at all! Generally, very little tooth structure is removed for tooth reshaping and therefore there is no need for local anesthesia. In cases where very little tooth structure is remaining, Dr. Samant will administer you with a local anesthetic agent, so that you remain pain-free and comfortable during the procedure.

How long will the procedure take?

The duration of tooth reshaping and recontouring basically depends upon the severity of your misshaped teeth as well as the type of procedure required to correct it. In case removal of the tooth structure is required, the procedure may take some time as great care has to be taken to exactly shape your tooth according the desired shape. On the other hand, if bonding is required, the procedure is fairly simple and may be completed in 30 minutes per tooth.

How long will tooth bonding last?

In some cases, Dr. Samant needs to reshape your teeth by using tooth bonding. The duration for how long the tooth bonding lasts basically depends upon your oral hygiene maintenance as well as eating habits. If you brush and floss your teeth regularly and avoid eating sticky foods from the bonded teeth, you can expect the bonding to even last for 5-7 years.

Is tooth reshaping and contouring covered by insurance?

Most insurance companies cover tooth reshaping and contouring under their insurance plans. However, it would be best if you ask your insurance company regarding the procedures that are covered in your insurance plan.
