Cosmetic contouring is a type of cosmetic dentistry that reshapes and contours teeth to fix various aesthetic problems. This cosmetic procedure changes the shape, length, and/or position of the treated teeth to make them look more appealing. This procedure is offered at Hillcrest Dental to help make your smile more appealing.
Cosmetic contouring is accomplished by carefully sculpting the teeth with a laser or sanding drill. The tool carefully removes enamel to reshape the teeth. Our doctors also use abrasive strips to shape and smooth the areas in between your teeth. The last step of the process is smoothing and polishing your teeth
