Types Of Procedures
There are different kinds of cosmetic contouring procedures. Usually, a combination of two or more procedures is used to enhance your visual appearance and give you a beautiful smile.
- Tooth Reshaping – This is a traditional procedure in which small chunks of hard outer enamel will be removed to square off or round off edges. This will make your teeth look more uniform.
- Dental Veneers – These are thin composite or porcelain pieces that are stuck over your front teeth. Usually, a resinous adhesive is used for this purpose. This procedure is often used with tooth reshaping.
- Tooth Bonding – In this process, a composite or plastic material is applied to your teeth’s surface. It is also sculpted, shaped and colored to the desired appearance. This procedure is also used with tooth reshaping.
