Tooth enamel is an incredibly hard substance, even harder than bone. Still, over time habits like chewing ice, biting your nails, or grinding your teeth can damage enamel and change the appearance of your teeth. Genetics can also play a role in the size and shape of your teeth. Fortunately, we can correct minor imperfections with simple teeth contouring in Riverview.Reshape your teeth to look their best Read Transcript
With teeth contouring and crown lengthening, we have the ability to change the shapes of teeth. There are two different ways. Teeth contouring is reshaping subtly if you have a square angle or a chip or something and you want to refine that tooth simply. The crown lengthening is when you've had a good amount of trauma to the tooth and that you don't have enough tooth that you can use to be a viable solution, you can go in and do some alterations to gain more useful tooth. They serve the same purpose in that they help you get the best aesthetic outcome possible.
A teeth contouring procedure will:
- Smooth out rough spots, small chips, and other surface flaws
- Straighten out uneven edges
- Give teeth a more consistent length and shape for a uniform smile
- Correct slightly overlapping teeth without orthodontic treatment
- Make it easier to brush and floss your teeth, in some cases

- Affordable – Contouring costs less than many other cosmetic procedures.
Adjust Your Smile’s Proportion With Crown Lengthening
Dr. McDuffie can use a procedure called crown lengthening to remove a small amount of gum tissue and expose more of the white part of your tooth. This will:
- Make your teeth look more even and balanced
- Lengthen the look of short or stubby teeth
- Make it easier for you to receive restorations like dental veneers and dental crowns
