Did you know you can reshape an unattractive, stubborn, and oddly shaped tooth to give it the appearance you desire? Well, it’s true! In fact, our dentist, Dr. Daniel Holsteen, is proud to offer this treatment at Mountain Shadows Family Dentistry.

Before you get too excited about treatment, there are some requirements you need to meet in order to undergo this type of treatment.

The first requirement is you need to have thick enamel. This is necessary because your dentist will need to remove a section of it for the treatment. In fact, he should remove about 1-2 millimeters of enamel from the tooth. So, if you don’t have thick enough enamel, your dentist might recommend restoring the tooth with a dental crown or dental veneer.

The second requirement is that you need to have healthy teeth and gums. Healthy teeth and gums make this treatment viable. If you have a weak tooth, it won’t be able to handle the treatment. If you have gum disease, your tooth might not have enough strong bone structure to support the tooth. At this point, your dentist might recommend a different dental treatment to fix the dental issues that prevented the tooth reshaping procedure.
