Teeth Contouring

Most people who want to enhance the appearance of their smile often consider the straightness and whiteness of their teeth. However, several other factors, such as uneven wear, slight overlaps, broken or cracked teeth, irregularly shaped teeth and pitting on the teeth surface, can affect your smile.

If you have any of these issues above that make your smile less attractive, you can undergo tooth contouring at Chatfield Dental Braces Clinic to improve the appearance of your smile.

At Chatfield Dental Braces Clinic, we perform different cosmetic dental procedures, and we have highly experienced tooth contouring specialists. If you want to contour one or several teeth, our dental professionals will ensure you achieve your desired result.

Do I need to contour my teeth?

Tooth contouring aims to reshape teeth that are slightly damaged or different from other teeth or ideal teeth.

Dental contouring is a common cosmetic procedure, often used on the upper teeth that are always visible when smiling. This includes the lateral, central and canine teeth. Tooth contouring has other benefits besides improving the appearance of your smile, such as enhancing your overall oral hygiene. If tooth contouring corrects an overlap, it makes cleaning the teeth easier, which helps prevent gum disease and tooth decay.

However, tooth contouring may not be the most suitable option in certain cases where an underlying issue is present such as alignment problems or tooth decay, and treatment is necessary. If you have any underlying dental issues, our dentist will discuss the issue to determine the most appropriate treatments.

How does tooth contouring work?

If you want to reshape or contour your teeth, you will need 2 – 3 dental visits. On your first visit, our dentist will discuss your treatment options and examine your teeth to ensure dental contouring is a good choice for you. You may also undergo a teeth x-ray.

During your second visit, you will have most of the contouring work. The dentist will use different tools, including polishing and drilling equipment, to carefully remove small amounts of the tooth surface to make the tooth more attractive.

The procedure requires the removal of only a small part of the outer teeth layer, so most people can undergo the procedure without anaesthesia and will not feel any pain.

Depending on the extent of work needed, the teeth reshaping session takes about thirty minutes to an hour. Our dentist may want to see you again for a follow-up appointment. During your follow-up appointment, the dentist will examine your teeth and make minor touch-ups, and you can ask any question about your aftercare.

How much is tooth contouring?

Tooth contouring usually costs between £150 - £300 per tooth. You may get a discount depending on the number of teeth you want to contour.

reviews-starI finally completed my treatment plan. So happy with my smile. Dr Pakan was amazing and done the best plan with Invisalign treatment for me. I've got all the payment on monthly basis with 0% APR. I didn't expect the cost to be easier than I thought. Suze was helpful and friendly at the reception.

reviews-starI have just finished my Invisalign course with Chatfield Dental Braces. I loved the fact that the braces were invisible and no one at work noticed I was wearing them. It was also very good to be able to take them out for cleaning and eating and for my wedding!
