Teeth Reshaping or dental contouring is one of the dental services the cosmetic dentist can provide you. In my opinion, we as dentists must always recommend the least invasive procedure possible first; if you, as the patient, refuse, there are alternatives, with pros and cons discussed. Since Invisalign can take many months, you need to wear multiple retainers. In the end, you still need a dental retainer to avoid further movement of your teeth to the original position.
Cosmetic reshaping of your teeth is excellent. Still, as the patient, you must know this is an irreversible procedure, meaning once your tooth is cut, the original tooth structure is gone. However, it can constantly be augmented with our modern dental material. Teeth reshaping can be done in one office visit. The dentist must evaluate if, after contouring, your tooth’s dentin will be exposed. If after your tooth reshaping, the dentin is not exposed, you are acceptable; however, if there is dentin exposed, you might need dental bonding to seal your dentin from further wear since dentin is much softer than the outer layer of your tooth, which is the enamel.
The COST of dental reshaping depends on the extent of reshaping needed and the experience and know-how of the dentist and is much lower than having an Invisalign procedure. From looking at your photos, you can cosmetically improve your smile, but you do need an evaluation of your bite and teeth beforehand.
