Tooth recontouring is a little lesser known cosmetic dentistry procedure, however, that doesn’t mean it can’t make a big difference for your smile. Your cosmetic dentist in Lexington might recommend tooth recontouring for a few reasons. It can generally be a good cosmetic solution to quickly fix:
- Irregularities on your teeth that are irritating your mouth
- Teeth that are too long, or with unwanted pointy spots
- Chips, spots, pits on your teeth
The recontouring procedure itself consists of removing extremely small amounts of enamel from your teeth. This allows Dr. Hollingsworth to alter the shape of your teeth that are visible when you show us your smile. We recommend this process for patients who are interested in cosmetically changing the surfaces, lengths, and shapes of their teeth. Most patients don’t realize the dramatic results we can achieve simply by removing even just a few millimeters of enamel, which can greatly impact and improve your smile and your confidence.
