If the length and/or pointiness of your teeth are standing in the way of your perfect smile, tooth contouring is a quick fix to get the smile you’ve always wanted. A fast and simple procedure, reshaping can make a smile appear less crowded and more proportionate. It can also shorten long teeth, smooth overlapping edges and round off square teeth to enhance your smile’s overall appearance. If you’re teeth are too pointy, reshaping them can lend a softer, more feminine smile, as you can see by Alyssa Milano’s once too pointy canines.

The procedure is simple and the results are dramatic. Your dentist will use a file to slightly reshape the edges and angles of your teeth, making them appear more aligned. Reshaping your teeth takes about 30 minutes. “We can reshape about half of the smile (anywhere from eight to 16 teeth) in just a half hour,” says Palm Desert, CA, cosmetic dentist, Rene Dell’Acqua, DDS. “By reshaping the edges of your natural teeth, we can fix mild crowding and crookedness to a point, giving the illusion of straightness without braces or Invisalign,” adds Atlanta cosmetic dentist Ronald E. Goldstein, DDS. Consult a cosmetic dentist to learn more.
