Teeth Reshaping in Fairfax VA, Dr. Fairfax & Associates Family Dentistry

There are a lot of things that factor in to the shape of your teeth. Things like genetics impact the size, for example, and whether they are rounded or squared. Habits such as thumb-sucking can also impact the shape of your teeth. If you are not happy with the shape of your teeth, you are not alone. In fact, the changing the shape of one’s teeth is one of the more common concerns addressed by your cosmetic dentist in Fairfax, VA.

At Dr. Fairfax and Associates, there are a number of options available to change the shape of your teeth. Let’s take a look at some of your options.

Teeth Reshaping

If your teeth are healthy and you are looking for a slight change only, reshaping or contouring your teeth might be an option. This is a fairly inexpensive cosmetic procedure that involves sanding strips and other dental equipment to make slight adjustments. For example, if you are looking for teeth that are smaller and better shaped, this could be a good option for you.

Porcelain Veneers

Dental veneers offer a more dramatic improvement to teeth. These thin shells made of porcelain are permanently applied over the teeth that are visible when you smile. There is some preparation of your natural teeth involved, so this is a permanent procedure. Porcelain veneers are responsible for many of the beautiful celebrity smiles we see.

Dental Crowns

If you are looking to dramatically change both size and shape of your teeth, crowns might be an option. Crowns are also appropriate if you are dealing with teeth that have decay or existing fillings. Crowns are used to change both the front and back teeth.
