Enamel reshaping or recontouring is a process in which a dentist shaves away portions of enamel to change the shape or length of teeth. The procedure can also alter the biting surface of teeth. Enamel reshaping is performed to improve the appearance of teeth, balance the smile, or improve the bite and the way teeth fit together.
