WHAT IS TEETH CONTOURING?

It is reshaping the incisal tips of the the top or bottom front teeth by making some minor reductions or changes to them. It is a simple, but skilled, procedure that can be done at the same time of your consultation visit. So you can get almost an instant result and change your smile as long your dentist knows what needs to be done and has some experience in doing it.

IS TEETH CONTOURING PAINFUL?

No. It should not be painful. If during the procedure pain or a strong sensation is felt, that means may be too much of the tooth is being removed. So as long is a measured and sensible approach, then there is absolutely no pain.

rating star icon LondonAs always the best treatment; on this occasion a visit to hygienist followed by dental check up. I have been going to Dr. Clarke since 1977 as he takes the greatest care of his dental patients. The work he has done has always been of the highest standard possible and he always offers intelligent solutions. Since moving to Wales I still return to Bayswater for my dental treatment. I did have to have emergency treatment in Wales and the dentist was highly respectful of the work done by Dr Clarke. In fact I think he was in awe!
Can't speak highly enough!

rating star icon LondonHad my wisdom tooth out, was the quickest and least painful dental procedure ever. Melanie and the dental assistant were so patient. Constantly letting me know exactly what was going on and checking that I couldn’t feel anything. Would recommend everybody to use this dentist practice!

HOW MUCH TOOTH CONTOURING CAN BE DONE SAFELY?

There is a limit in how much of the teeth can be removed during the reshaping. The amount varies from tooth to tooth but usually we are talking about 0.5-1.0 mm. Sometimes may be slightly more before the tooth becomes sensitive. You may say this is very little and no difference is made by such small changes! But remember in dental terms, 1 millimetre can make a big difference and has a big impact on the appearance of the teeth. We know this from experience and treating 100s of patients.

CAN I CHANGE THE SHAPE OF THE TOOTH BY CONTOURING THE SURFACE OF THEM?

Most of the alterations are usually done on the tip of the teeth for leveling them or shortening some teeth, making the teeth less pointed like for eye teeth and removing the small chips or smoothing the jagged edges. Sometimes a very small adjustments can be made to the surface of the teeth but they are usually limited.

CAN I MAKE MY TEETH MORE ALIGNED BY CONTOURING THEM?

Unless the issue is of very minute amounts, the answer is really no and one should consider a more appropriate option for alignment of the teeth like orthodontic treatment such as Invisalign or in some cases, where possible and advisable, by Dental veneers like Composite or porcelain veneers.

WHAT ARE THE ALTERNATIVE OPTIONS WHEN TEETH CONTOURING IS NOT ADVISABLE?

There are limited other options and it depends on the main concern of the patient and what they wish to achieve. Considering this the alternative options to teeth contouring can be orthodontic treatment or the veneer options, depending what would be the most suitable choice. Orthodontic treatment can make teeth appear shorter by intruding them when they appear too long and at the same time align the teeth If is needed. The veneer option, like composite veneers which is usually the least invasive option, teeth can be build up when they are broken down substantially or have a very jagged edges which is not possible to smooth just by contouring.

rating star icon LondonGreat customer service and well-experienced dental surgeons. I was able to book a Saturday appointment after feeling a large bump on my gum on Monday. There was a longer-than usual wait time the day of the appointment and the receptionist was very accommodating and agreed to call me once the doctor was done. I live very close so went home for 15 minutes, hung my laundry, and got the call to come back.

It turned out I needed a tooth extraction as my last wisdom tooth was starting to break through. The dentist assured me he was a specialist in tooth extractions, and he is! Even the needle full of numbing agent was so fast I could barely feel it. The entire process, from me getting into the chair to them finishing the procedure (including taking x-rays) only took 45 minutes—the epitome of quick and painless at the dentist! They were also very accommodating and provided me OTC anti-inflammatory pills to save me a trip to Boots. I required no antibiotics, healed well, and my stitches fell out on schedule after 10 days. Highly recommend Bayswater Dental. :)

rating star icon LondonOwing to an upbringing in Scotland many years ago (pre Fluoride) and years of travelling as well as an injury to my jaw from a climbing accident, I have had to see well over 20 dentists in the course of my life. I have experience of dentists in several countries and work has included implants as well as other quite complex work. When I visited Dr Vahid at Bayswater, he drew up a comprehensive plan, which included some cosmetic work as I wanted to look my best for my marriage a few months ago. Not only did he explain every stage of the plan but he listened carefully to what I wanted or thought I wanted and adapted accordingly. His cosmetic work was superb and the other work that he did on dentistry that was failing was the best I have ever experienced. He has an engineering background as well as being a very experienced dentist; moreover, he explains extremely well and clearly works to the highest standard. The support staff are also very welcoming and helpful. I would recommend Dr Vahid as highly as possible.
