When a tooth needs to be reshaped, a process called ‘contouring’ is done. Also known as ‘tooth reshaping’ or ‘dental sculpting’, it provides a quick fix for anything from a chipped tooth to crooked teeth. Contouring is also useful for teeth that overlap one another or are uneven.
Contouring can also make a positive difference on your bite. Jaw muscles are often under stress when you tooth alignment is imbalanced. Contouring, which can often be completed in one visit to South University Dental, makes an instant, noticeable difference.
