What is teeth contouring?

Have you ever wanted to change the shape of your teeth? Do you have teeth that look too long or have chipped or uneven edges? If so, cosmetic contouring may be just what you need to enhance your appearance and achieve the smile of your dreams. Teeth contouring involves removing small amounts of the tooth enamel, which is the hard, outermost layer of the tooth. Because the enamel has no feeling, you can rest assured that your visit to our office will be painless and comfortable. By making small adjustments in the enamel, we can give your teeth a more aesthetic appearance. In general, Drs. Farber and Farber can complete the cosmetic contouring treatment in just one visit of less than one hour.
