Smile Contouring

Smile Contouring is a cosmetic dental procedure at SkinFX Canada in South Surrey which transforms worn, pointed or chipped teeth into a gorgeous, younger-looking and shapely smile that looks natural and matches the patient’s complexion.

Contouring a tooth involves careful adjustments to create better shapes and sizes to enhance your smile, normally involving the removal or addition of a few millimetres of material. It’s a very straightforward but highly effective way to even out your smile without using more invasive techniques.

Smile Contouring (also known as Tooth Contouring) is now one of the most popular treatments we provide due to the amazing results that can be achieved quickly and affordably.

Smile Contouring can be used to correct:

  • Chipped teeth
  • Discoloured fillings
  • Broken teeth
  • Crooked teeth
  • Discoloured teeth
  • Missing teeth
  • ‘Gummy’ smile lines
  • Worn Down teeth

All services will be performed by a highly experienced and skilled dentist licensed to practice in BC.

A fine diamond and/or polishing burs are used to remove very small amounts of enamel. (approximately 1-2 millimetres). Once the teeth are reshaped properly, the dentist will polish your teeth for a smooth and shiny finish. The procedure is mostly pain-free and does not require anesthesia, medication, or preparation.

Will Smile Contouring / Tooth Contouring help my “Gummy Smile”?

Absolutely! Many people choose Smile Contouring to help their “Gummy Smile” situation. By raising the gum-line up a few millimetres higher, the “gum” looks smaller and gives more attention to the teeth. Usually, a number of small adjustments are made by the Dentist and the results look something like this:Gummy smile before and after pic
