How are the teeth shaped?
The way the teeth are reshaped depends on the existing shape of the tooth; in cases where a tooth has been chipped, contouring will help to fill in the chipped area of the tooth, for example. Instruments such as lasers, drills and abrasive materials may be used to alter the shape and appearance of a tooth.
