Enamel Shaping (Contouring) is the process of shaping
natural teeth to improve their appearance. Shaping can be
used to correct minor cases of crowded or overlapping teeth,
smooth rough edges, or make small adjustments to the shape
of a tooth. No anesthesia is necessary!
Before: This patient has a small notch in three
of her four front teeth.
After: Minor contouring (shaping) of the enamel
makes her teeth smooth and natural looking!
