This is a simple process in which small alterations are made to your teeth to level an uneven smile line and correct worn, chipped or pointed teeth. The concept of cosmetic contouring and reshaping is to change the size or shape of the teeth. It is a minimally invasive technique and a good place to start changing your smile.
How long does cosmetic contouring take?
Cosmetic contouring is a relatively quick procedure, a single tooth takes up to 10min. You may be combining this with other treatments, in which case it may take longer.
Is cosmetic contouring a painful procedure?
This treatment is completely painless and non-invasive. This means that you won’t need anaesthetic. After contouring is complete the teeth are polished and fluoride is applied.
How long after my cosmetic contouring appointment do I need to wait before I can eat or drink?
You can eat and drink as normal after contouring. We advise you to follow a good oral health routine to maintain the health of your teeth and gums and to maintain the results of your treatment.
- Make sure you brush at least twice a day
- Ensure you floss daily before brushing your teeth

Is cosmetic contouring the right solution for me?
Cosmetic contouring is a perfect solution for minor cosmetic repairs such as teeth that are slightly misshapen or slightly too long. If your teeth are very crooked or misshapen, we would perhaps recommend teeth straightening, veneers or cosmetic bonding as an alternative.
