Minor Tooth Movement and Cosmetic ContouringMinor Changes to Tooth Shape and Position Can Achieve Incredible Results

Minor tooth movement and cosmetic tooth contouring can make a dramatic difference in the overall look of your smile, for a much lower cost than a full smile makeover.

Minor Tooth Movement

Minor tooth movement is a limited orthodontic procedure to correct crooked, poorly positioned or misaligned teeth. Relatively simple movements of one or more teeth can result in a significant cosmetic transformation, since it only takes a few crooked teeth or a noticeable space to spoil the look of what would otherwise be an attractive smile.

Minor tooth movement takes months, not years, as the problematic teeth usually do not need to be moved more than a millimeter or two. In general, it is performed in adult mouths and involves only the front teeth. Correct alignment of the front teeth also prevents them from overlapping further and insures against future drifting, which can cause all of the teeth to shift.

Dr. Hawk has completed advanced training in tooth growth and development and tooth straightening mechanics, allowing him to perform minor tooth movement with excellent results.

Minor tooth movement costs far less than a full mouth cosmetic treatment and can give you a dynamite smile!

Cosmetic Tooth Reshaping and Contouring

Cosmetic tooth reshaping and contouring is a dental procedure to correct crooked, chipped, cracked or even overlapping teeth in just one session, by reshaping the patient's own teeth. This process involves removal of a very small amount of tooth structure to alter the length, shape or position of your teeth and achieve a more desirable appearance.

Dental contouring is based on subtle changes. A few millimeters of reduction and a few tenths of a millimeter of shaping can have significant results. Chipped or fractured areas are smoothed out, and specific angles or edges can be rounded to alter the way your smile looks. Contouring can create better alignment or a more feminine or masculine appearance. It can even be a substitute for braces under certain circumstances; we also offer Clear Correct, the invisible alternative to braces, for more complex orthodontic needs.

There is no discomfort to the patient and no anesthetic required. Often, this procedure is coordinated with teeth whitening. Cosmetic reshaping of the teeth is a conservative and inexpensive approach that can make a huge difference in the way you feel about your smile in only one office visit!
