What Is Contouring?
Tooth contouring is a method in which a small portion of the tooth enamel is removed with a drill. Once the tooth has been modified, it is given a coat of polish for better and smoother finishing. Generally, tooth contouring is performed on those teeth that are the most visible such as your front incisors and canines on the upper gum.
Why Have It Done?
Tooth contouring can be used for treating a number of defects such as small chips, overlapping teeth, uneven length and pointed teeth. The process is also used for correcting small bite problems that arise when teeth come in an uneven contact between each other. If you want to give your teeth a more masculine or feminine appearance, then also a teeth-contouring procedure can help you out. Your teeth will have to be rounded or squared at the edges, and your desired results will be achieved.
