Cosmetic Contouring in Pasadena
What is Cosmetic Contouring?
Dental contouring, also called tooth reshaping, is a simple procedure to fix small imperfections like slightly misshapen teeth.
During the process, I either gently remove some of the tooth’s enamel or add a white filling material to change its shape or length. Once the tooth has been contoured to our satisfaction, it will be polished and made beautiful again.
You’ll See Results Instantly
There are many benefits to dental contouring, however the biggest one is how quickly patients see results. The procedure generally takes less than a half hour, so patients go home with instant results.
And, since there are no nerves in your enamel, there is no need to worry about pain. Dental contouring is a great option if you are especially anxious about dental visits.
Another benefit? Results are permanent. Enamel does not grow back, so once your teeth have been reshaped, you don’t need to worry about getting the procedure redone down the road.

How Do You Know if Cosmetic Contouring is Right For You?
This procedure is ideal for people with minor cosmetic dental problems. If you are generally satisfied with your smile but wish your teeth were a tad bit shorter or more even in size, then contouring may be the perfect fit for you.
On the other hand, we may recommend another procedure if your teeth are very crooked, crowded or misshapen.
