How will tooth contouring work?
If you want your teeth contoured or re-shaped, then you may have to see a dentist at least two or three times.
At your first visit, the dentist will discuss about all possible options and assess your teeth condition to know if dental contouring is the perfect choice for your case. This might involve getting your teeth X-rayed at the clinic.
The second visit involves doing most of tooth contouring works and by using different tools such as drill and polishing equipment, the dentist will remove small amounts of tooth carefully to form it into your desired shape. As small parts of outermost layer of the tooth are removed only, most patients will perform the procedure without taking anaesthetic or getting any kind of pain.
Based on the amount of work to be done, your tooth reshaping session will usually be thirty minutes to an hour.
The dentist will usually ask you to visit again for follow up appointment. During this visit, the teeth will be assessed, and minor touch-ups should be done. You will get the suitable chance to ask your dentist any questions related to the treatment.
How long will tooth contouring last?
These treatments are predictable and repairable. Teeth Contouring will last a long time as the teeth will remain in position until the teeth naturally move over the years. Bonding averages 7 to ten years.
