What is cosmetic contouring?

Cosmetic contouring is a service designed to improve the shape of your teeth and enhance the overall appearance of your smile. In the cosmetic tooth contouring procedure, our dentist removes small amounts of tooth enamel, which is the protective outer layer of the tooth. By making careful changes to the shape of the enamel, Dr. Alberto A. Herrero corrects cosmetic dental flaws and gives your smile a more attractive appearance. In certain cases, we may recommend combining cosmetic contouring with dental bonding to achieve optimal results. Our team is typically able to complete cosmetic contouring in Ann Arbor, Michigan, in just one visit to our office so you can achieve a more beautiful smile after just one appointment!

Do I need cosmetic contouring?

We may suggest cosmetic tooth contouring in order to make minor aesthetic changes to the size, length, surface, or shape of your teeth. Tooth contouring can be used to correct:

  • Slight tooth overlapping
  • Irregularly shaped teeth
  • Teeth that appear too long or too large
  • Dips or other imperfections on the tooth surface
  • Chipped or cracked teeth
  • Adjacent teeth of unequal lengths
  • Teeth that look too pointed
