Cosmetic Contouring

Cosmetic contouring is a dental treatment that also known as dental reshaping or enameloplasty or Odontoplasty. It  is a dental procedure that involves the removal of a small amount of tooth enamel to improve the appearance of teeth. It can also be used to correct issues such as cracked, chipped, or crooked teeth. Cosmetic Contouring is a specialized dental treatment that aims to improve the overall appearance of teeth and the smile of an individual while maintaining optimal oral health. If you feel dissatisfied with the size, shape, color, or alignment of your teeth, opting for cosmetic treatments can be an excellent investment toward achieving the perfect smile.


Cosmetic contouring is a painless dental treatment that does not require anesthesia. During a cosmetic contouring procedure, dental X-rays are taken to determine the size and location of the pulp, which contains arteries and nerves. After that, the teeth are examined to determine if cosmetic contouring is the best treatment option for the patient. Recontouring is impossible if the pulp is too thin or too close to the tooth. Other procedures, such as dental bonding, may be preferred in these cases. Then, using a sanding disc or fine diamond, our skilled dentist will remove a small amount of enamel from the surface of your teeth to give them a more desirable shape. After the aesthetic contouring procedure, your teeth will be polished to give a smooth and shiny appearance. This will give you a beautiful, natural-looking smile that you can be proud of.

Enamel removal

The contouring procedure involves removing small amounts of tooth enamel to reshape the teeth. This is done using a dental drill or laser. The dentist carefully removes small amounts of enamel from the surface of the teeth to create a more aesthetically pleasing shape.


Dental Bonding

This is a cosmetic technique that involves the application of a tooth-colored resin material to the tooth. The resin is sculpted and shaped to correct any imperfections and is then hardened using a special light. Dental bonding is commonly used to correct minor tooth damage, such as chips or cracks.



After the enamel removal and dental bonding are completed, a polisher is used to smooth and polish the surface of the tooth. The polisher removes any rough or uneven surfaces and gives the tooth a smooth, shiny finish.


Digital imaging

Dentists use advanced digital imaging technology to capture 3D images of a patient's teeth and gums. This helps in the diagnosis and planning of cosmetic contouring procedures.

Our Treatment Process


The dentist will first examine your teeth to determine if cosmetic contouring is a suitable treatment option for you. They will also discuss your goals and expectations for the treatment.


If needed, the dentist may take X-rays to evaluate the thickness of your tooth enamel and to check for any underlying dental problems.


Before starting the treatment, the dentist will numb the area around the teeth that will be contoured. They will then use a dental drill or laser to gently remove small amounts of tooth enamel to achieve the desired shape and size.

Enamel removal

The dentist will use a dental drill or laser to remove a small amount of enamel from the teeth to reshape them. This will be done carefully and conservatively, to avoid damaging the teeth.

Dental bonding

Once the teeth have been reshaped, the dentist will apply a tooth-colored composite resin to the teeth. This resin will be carefully sculpted and shaped to achieve the desired result. The resin will then be cured using a special light.


Once the resin has hardened, the dentist will use polishing tools to smooth and polish the surface of the teeth. This will help to ensure that the teeth look natural and blend in with the surrounding teeth.
