Why is Tooth Reshaping Done?
Tooth reshaping is a simple cosmetic procedure that can slightly alter the appearance of the tooth. Small amounts of tooth enamel, or the outer layer of the tooth, can be removed to shape the tooth, greatly improving its appearance. Here are some of the most common reasons tooth reshaping is done.
- Overlapping Teeth: If you have a tooth that is ever-so-slightly overlapping another tooth, it does not make sense to spend thousands of dollars on braces for a minor imperfection. Tooth reshaping can be done to reshape the tooth so it does not overlap another one.
- Irregularly-Shaped Teeth: Do you have one tooth that is slightly longer than the others? Or perhaps shaped a bit differently than the others? If so, it likely protrudes, drawing unwanted attention. Reshaping can make that problematic tooth match the others.
- Chips in the Teeth: If you have a small chip or a crack in a tooth, tooth reshaping can remove the damaged layer of enamel, revealing an undamaged layer beneath it.
- Pointy Cuspids: If your pointy cuspids make others wonder if you’re related to a vampire it may be time to have them reshaped. Tooth reshaping is the perfect option.
