What Does Tooth Contouring Involve?

Your dentist will need to take x-rays and perform a dental exam prior to teeth contouring to ensure the tooth root structure is as expected and there are no cracks or decay in the teeth that went unnoticed.  Generally anesthesia is not necessary with teeth contouring.  The tooth is gradually ground down using air abrasion to shape the tooth or remove the minor imperfection.

What Does Tooth Contouring Cost?
