How Can You Fix Misshapen Teeth?

Misshapen teeth can make your smile appear unappealing. Furthermore, structural abnormalities in your teeth may influence your bite and your ability to talk correctly. In certain circumstances, depending on the severity of the problem, therapies to enhance the look of crooked and misshapen teeth are performed.

What Does It Mean By A Misshapen Tooth?

Misshapen, deformed, or too-worn teeth are all frequent aesthetic dental issues. In reality, nearly everyone has at least one tooth that seems to be out of position or has been worn down unevenly. Unfortunately, it only takes one out-of-place tooth to throw off the symmetry of an otherwise flawless smile. Misshapen teeth are usually caused by irregular growth throughout the tooth’s development. This might cause a tooth to be much smaller than the rest of your teeth. Abnormal growth can also result in a tooth that is considerably different in form from the surrounding teeth.

What Is Tooth Contouring?

Tooth contouring, also known as sculpting & reshaping, is a cosmetic therapy that allows us to change the length, shape, and surface of our teeth. Tooth recontouring is a quick, painless, and affordable surgery that may dramatically improve the appearance of your smile. Tooth recontouring can also enhance general dental health by reducing fissures or overlaps between teeth that can harbor dangerous plaque or tartar.

Can You Get Your Teeth Reshaped?

Tooth reshaping, also known as odontoplasty, is a simple and low-cost cosmetic dental technique for repairing a chipped, uneven, misaligned, or fractured tooth. This fast and painless technique includes removing some dental enamel before shaping or extending a problematic tooth.

Cosmetic Dentistry Treatments

For somewhat misshapen teeth, three cosmetic dentistry alternatives are veneers, dental bonding, and crowns.

-Traditional veneers are a straightforward cosmetic remedy for misshapen teeth. These composite or porcelain shells cover the front surface of the teeth, making them more even.
-Dental bonding simply covers a piece of a tooth. Dental bonding needs only one clinic visit and is less expensive than veneers, which require two or more sessions. Bonding can also be reversed.
-Dental crown treatment entails tooth remodeling, followed by the placement of a porcelain or metal crown over the top of the tooth. Dental crowns are normally used for restorative purposes.

Is Tooth Reshaping Safe?

When done by a dental professional, reshaping is a completely safe way to enhance your smile. Reshaping is a cosmetic procedure, but it has various additional advantages. Smoothing the tooth surface can assist patients maintain good dental health and enhance bite alignment. It reduces the risk of gum disease and tooth decay by eliminating tartar-accumulating fissures and pits.

    Rosa V.
    I love this dental office! I have been coming here for years. It is a one-stop-shop! You can get your x-rays, cleaning, braces, labs, dentures, toothbrushes, and more all right here. They offer a movie room, 15 minute massages, child care, coffee, tea, and snacks! The weekends included face painting and balloon art for the kids. The staff is great, and they try to work with you if you need a payment plan. I think most insurance carriers are accepted. Never had any issues with any of the work done here!
