Tooth contouring, also called tooth reshaping, can correct crooked, chipped, cracked or overlapping teeth in just one session. Tooth contouring can change the length, shape, and position of your teeth in a painless procedure.
Tooth contouring, or shaping, is a procedure in which the cosmetic dentist removes small amounts of surface enamel from a tooth to sculpt it into a desired shape. The procedure requires that the teeth be healthy and strong. A cosmetic dentist can sometimes improve your smile by removing only a few millimeters of tooth enamel.
Cost of Tooth Contouring
Tooth contouring is usually only covered by dental insurance if it is needed due to accident. The cost is dependent upon the scope of the reshaping, but the average cost of tooth shaping is $100 to $450 per tooth.
