For minor aesthetic flaws in the teeth, Dr. Stein may use a procedure call tooth recontouring or tooth reshaping. This conservative cosmetic procedure is virtually painless and can be completed in just one appointment at our Laguna Beach dental practice. Tooth recontouring can be used to:
- Adjust the length of longer teeth (such as the canines)
- Fix small chips in the teeth
- Change the shape of uneven teeth
- Smooth the surface of the teeth
Because this is a more conservative treatment, tooth recontouring isn’t a replacement for dental veneers or the bonding procedure. In some cases, however, Dr. Stein may recommend combining tooth recontouring with bonding or veneers to help you achieve your smile goals. If you have any questions about tooth recontouring or cosmetic dentistry, or if you simply want to schedule your consultation, we invite you to call or visit our office soon.
