I’m interested in changing the shape of my teeth. What options are available?

For anyone who is wanting to change the shape of their teeth, whether it is for purely aesthetic or other reasons, this is a question you have probably asked a lot. The first thing to say is that you are not unusual, and neither are you alone. It is in fact a very common question we hear at our Midtown Manhattan dental office, and the good news is that there are several options for you if this is something you wish to do.

The first option is dental bonding, which is a procedure using a tooth colored resin material. This is applied to the tooth surface and then the material is hardened by using a special light, and during this hardening process the material bonds to the tooth.

Dental Crowns are another option that are caps that are placed over the existing tooth. These caps are cemented into place and fully enclose the visible portion of the original tooth.

The third option available is porcelain veneers. Often referred to just as veneers, these are custom made items that cover the front surface of the teeth. They act like shells for your teeth and are extremely thin and tooth colored. Fixed by bonding to the front of your teeth, they provide an effective new look for your teeth.

The final option is teeth recontouring, often referred to as tooth reshaping or odontoplasty. This process involves removing small amounts of enamel from the teeth so that the length, shape or even surface texture of the teeth.

Obviously with multiple options there are variations in the results. Some options are far more durable than others, whilst the costs do vary between choices as well. Finally, the other variation between these procedures is the length of time it takes to have the treatment done.

All of these factors can affect your choice when it comes to teeth shaping, and although a wide choice is good, it can be a confusing situation if you are wondering how to proceed. By visiting our New York City Midtown dentist practice and booking a consultation we can talk you through the options available for your situation and find the very best way to proceed for you.
