Contouring & Reshaping With Gentle Dental

Our dentists are proud to provide our patients in Southern Maine with contouring and reshaping cosmetic dentistry procedures! Teeth contouring and reshaping is a great way to improve the look of your smile and better your oral hygiene at the same time. If you have a minor defect or imperfection in one or more of your teeth, contouring and reshaping might be the solution that’s right for you!

The Contouring & Reshaping Process

Like with all of our cosmetic procedures here at Gentle Dental, the contouring and reshaping process starts with a consultation exam to help you decide what option is right for you and your smile. We’ll discuss which imperfections you’d like to be fixed, the state of your overall oral health, and your options moving forward. Once we’ve determined that contouring and reshaping is right for you, we’ll schedule an appointment for the procedure! The great thing about contouring and reshaping is that it can typically be done in one appointment, so you’ll walk out of our office with your pearly whites looking better than ever!

Contouring & Reshaping Procedure

The contouring & reshaping procedure at Gentle Dental is minimally invasive and painless, meaning you normally won’t need any pain medications or numbing agents. The procedure is as simple as matching the materials we’ll be using to your teeth to your natural teeth color, then applying them! Once the materials have been applied, we’ll shape and polish them so they’re unnoticeable. When the procedure is finished you’ll have a fresh, clean smile that you’ll be proud of! Contouring & reshaping of teeth is perfect for anyone who has imperfections in their smile like misshapen teeth, teeth varying in length, and receded gums. Other benefits of this procedure include tartar and plaque build-up prevention, reduced risk of infections, and reduced chances of developing tooth decay or gum disease.  


Oral Cancer Screening

Our dental team is the first line in defensive to address oral cancer. Oral cancer screening is a necessary and preventative step that is critical to one’s overall health.


While brushing and flossing are the two most important factors to prevent cavities, we offer dental sealants which protects your teeth from the harmful bacteria that cause cavities. Sealant is a completely painless procedure that only takes a few minutes.
