Tooth reshaping

Have you ever felt like you wanted your tooth shortened, rounded, smoothed or straightened?

In very simple cases a little reshaping or adding of a tooth coloured material (white filling) can produce the effect of straightening a tooth and improving the overall appearance.

This is a very minimally invasive procedure, whereby very little tooth substance is removed, but can provide a dramatic improvement to the appearance of your smile.

An example of this is where a tooth has chipped due to trauma, giving an uneven edge to the biting surface of a tooth. The dentist will smooth or add to the chipped tooth surface to even out the rough edge and give the appearance of straightness again.

If the the appearance you desire cannot be carried out simply by reshaping the tooth, other treatment options are available such as the placement of porcelain tooth veneers, crowns and tooth whitening to name a few. The best option is to have a consultation with your dentist to discuss your concerns and decide upon the correct treatment plan together.

Coronavirus:

We are committed to protecting our staff and patients, and have adapted our existing practices to make it Covid secure. There has been lots to do, from social distancing measures, to obtaining enhanced PPE, and adapting your patient journey experience. 

We’ve now re-opened our practices, giving priority to patients with dental emergencies such as pain, and swelling first, and are now pleased to offer more routine treatments and services. 

We are screening all patients for symptoms of Covid-19 prior to their visit, and are delighted to introduce our online patient portal, so you can access the forms we would routinely update in the comfort of your own home. This helps us reduce the number of patients in the practice and your time during face to face appointments.

Our telephone lines are particularly busy at present, so if your enquiry is not urgent, we encourage you to send us an email instead.

For advice and treatment outside of our normal working hours please phone The Lancashire Dental Helpline on 0300 1234 080.
