Tooth Contouring

The shape, size and colour of your teeth invariably affect your smile. The perfect smile for some people is one with the right size of teeth, the right shape and the right colour of teeth as well. So for people who are lacking in any of these factors, they can begin to feel they have less than a perfect smile.

Any flaw in the shape or outlook of your teeth can be easily corrected with tooth contouring. At Smile Works dental clinic, we offer our services through our professional dentists in various dental services including tooth contouring.

WHAT IS TOOTH CONTOURING?

Tooth contouring is also called dental contouring. It is simply the procedure carried out by cosmetic dentists on the upper dentition, to adjust the shape or size of your teeth or both. The attention is focused on the upper teeth because it is the upper dentition that is visible to people whenever we smile.

Tooth contouring involves reshaping teeth that are out of shape, out of place, slightly damaged, or a tooth that looks different from other teeth in the mouth.

WHO NEEDS TOOTH CONTOURING?

Tooth contouring is for everyone and anyone who has problems with the shape, size and general look of their teeth. It can be any problem like a underlap, overlap, crossbites or large front teeth.

WHY DO I NEED TOOTH CONTOURING?

If you are having issues with smiling confidently because of your teeth, then you should not hesitate to seek help from our clinic at Harley Street London. You might not know, but besides reshaping badly shaped teeth, tooth contouring can also benefit you in other ways like;

Improving your smile

When your teeth are corrected, your smile becomes unique. Tooth contouring helps you smile confidently wherever you are, knowing fully well that your teeth are in perfect shape.

Improving oral hygiene

Some teeth problems or shapes make it difficult to brush or floss regularly. A good example is a crowded teeth or an overlap. When you have such teeth problems, it is usually a problem reaching some spaces with the toothbrush and cleaning them. Flossing is a whole different story as well. Tooth contouring will readjust the shape and size of the overlapping teeth, making brushing easier.

Prevention of tooth and gum disease

Tooth decay and gum disease arise due to improper hygiene and poor eating habits. When food particles cannot be removed through brushing or flossing, probably because there is difficulty in brushing and flossing, bacteria and other fungal infection sets in, causing tooth decay and gum disease. With tooth contouring, the teeth are well proportioned, and cleaning is more comfortable, thereby preventing tooth decay from setting in.

TOOTH CONTOURING; HOW DOES IT WORK?

If you have decided to get your teeth contoured, you will have to consult our well experienced dentist at Harley Street London for the procedure. It usually takes about two or three visits for the entire process to be completed.

FIRST VISIT

This is the point where our dentist will examine your teeth and determine the areas that need the treatment. It is also at this point that the dentist will decide if you need tooth contouring, or if you need another alternative like braces or veneers. It may even involve the use of x-ray to examine the teeth.

SECOND VISIT

This is when the actual contouring process is carried out. This is after the dentist has confirmed that tooth contouring is what you need for your teeth problems.

Various tools are involved in this procedure; they include drills and polishing equipment. The tooth or teeth is carved by our dentist, using the tools, and removing unwanted pieces of the tooth bit by bit until the desired shape is achieved. Since it’s the teeth that are carved, the procedure can be carried out without anaesthetic. The entire process should not take much time, usually about 30 minutes or an hour.

THIRD VISIT

This is just a necessary precaution by the dentist to check on the progress and see if there is any need for a touch-up. It is merely a follow-up appointment.

COST OF TOOTH CONTOURING

The price of tooth contouring is highly affordable for everyone. However, there are some factors that can affect the cost of the procedure.

The dentist, for example, may deliver his charge based on a number of reasons. The location is another determining factor
