Understand Cosmetic Shaping

If you have a tooth that seems to stand out from all the rest, it can be a real smile wrecker. Cosmetic shaping can reshape your tooth so that it no longer draws attention to itself. Dr. Moore will gently buff your tooth into the ideal shape. Thanks to his art background, Dr. John Moore is able to apply a skilled hand and an artistic eye to your teeth for the most beautiful smile possible.

Cosmetic Shaping Is Not Painful

Cosmetic shaping is a completely pain-free procedure. Only the tooth enamel, or the outer surface of your teeth, is modified. It’s also quick and inexpensive. An added benefit is that fixing teeth that overlap can make flossing and brushing easier and improve the overall health of your teeth.

More Than Cosmetic Shaping

Because there are limitations to cosmetic reshaping, we often suggest pairing it with or using it to complement other dental procedures:

  • Once a tooth has been reshaped with cosmetic reshaping, tooth bonding might be necessary to achieve the ideal final look.
  • Dental veneers are sometimes applied to top teeth only, so cosmetic reshaping can be done to fix minor issues with lower teeth.
  • Cosmetic reshaping can be done as a touch-up treatment following braces if it’s more apparent a tooth is an odd length or width now that your teeth are aligned.

Improve your smile in an easy, noninvasive way at the San Antonio, TX dental office of Cosmetic Dental Associates. Call us at 210-951-4444 or use our easy online form to schedule your cosmetic reshaping San Antonio, TX area appointment today!
