Contouring & Reshaping

Teeth Contouring, Reshaping & Cosmetic Dentistry in Waterville, Maine | Cosmetic Dentist Near Me | Waterville Maine Dentist

We start with an in-depth consultation, examining the total state of your dental health, then and only then we begin a process that starts with a thorough teeth cleaning. Next, we color match the materials to your teeth, then hold it in place. Once it cures, we shape each treated tooth, clean and polish them.

When time counts, count on us. We are experts in dental bonding and most treatments can be carried out during a single appointment, which you’ll leave with a big smile and increased confidence. In addition to the conditions listed above, dental bonding can help with teeth of varying lengths, teeth shaped incorrectly, and recessed gums.

I am 53, and I have experienced many dentists in my lifetime. I have hated all of my experiences, so this review is a BIG DEAL because I had to go to Dr. Choe to get 3 fillings done, and he fixed the problem very expediently and with empathy to my nervousness, and I left feeling extremely happy with his results! Dr. Choe is the best dentist I have ever had to see, and I am forlorn that it took so long in my life to actually have a pleasant experience.
