Recontouring/Reshaping

In some cases, a tooth may be slightly misshapen or chipped. When the problem is only minor, reshaping or recontouring can often be the perfect solution; it is fast and painless.

Usually requiring only a few minutes, recontouring or reshaping involves only slight reduction of the tooth surface – just enough to smooth out the rough edges.

In some cases, cosmetic resin bonding may be combined with reshaping and recontouring to replace small chips in the tooth.
