We all want that perfect, beautiful smile. However, genetics and natural changes to the smile can make this difficult to attempt without integrating cosmetic dentistry. Dr. Robert J. Moretta is a dentist in Huntington Beach, California who proudly offers aesthetic solutions for his patients, including tooth contouring and reshaping.
Unusually shaped teeth?
There are times in which patients may naturally have one or more teeth within the smile that is unusually shaped. Teeth may also be broken or chipped and require cosmetic attention. Whatever the reason, tooth contouring and reshaping can be requested.
When Dr. Robert J. Moretta is approached with unusually shaped teeth, there are many ways in which it can be addressed.
- Porcelain veneers – veneers are ceramic restorations that are bonded over the front of the tooth to change its appearance. These are great for covering teeth that are permanently stained, unusually shaped, broken, or misaligned. They can last ten years or longer with proper care.
- Composite resin bonding – sometimes patients may use composite resin bonding materials to reshape a tooth. This is often used when chips and cracks are present. This material is not stain resistant and needs to be replaced every few years to look its best.
- Filing – sometimes, filing down a tooth with special instruments at the dental office can help restore the tooth to a more natural-looking appearance. This is done with great care by our dental staff to ensure it is done correctly.
Which treatment is right for me?
The best way to determine which solution above is best for your smile is to book a consultation appointment and initial evaluation with Dr. Robert J. Moretta. He can take the time to examine the smile and make recommendations based on the patient’s desires and budget.
