Dental Tooth Contouring From £295 Per Tooth

Unhappy with the shape and length of your teeth? Then join hundreds of our patients who have reshaped their smile and contoured their teeth with enameloplasty (gentle tooth contouring) at our practice in London.

  • Treatment involves careful sculpting of enamel.
  • Completely safe and provided by dentists
  • Only a small portion of enamel was removed
  • Enamel is reshaped as opposed to the tooth
  • No anaesthetic is required (pain-free)

Cosmetic dental contouring is a simple, painless procedure which uses small drills or lasers to remove some of the tooth’s enamel to alter its shape/length. 

Smile problems contouring fixes:

  • Worn or uneven teeth
  • Pitted tooth surfaces or long teeth
  • Small chips and overlapping teeth
  • Teeth that are out of proportion

The dental contouring procedure

  • An x-ray of teeth is taken to analyse the dental pulp.
  • An assessment of the bone to ensure there’s enough to support teeth.
  • Enamel is removed using a paper disk to file teeth into shape.
  • Patients are unlikely to experience tooth sensitivity after the procedure.
  • No prior consultation is required

How much tooth contouring costs

At our London practice, tooth contouring typically costs between £100-£300 per tooth, which can vary depending on the number of teeth that need reshaping or the extent of reshaping required. Our prices start from £295 per tooth.

0% dental finance is available on any treatment costing upwards of £350.


A relatively affordable treatment, tooth contouring is a one-hour-long procedure that can make teeth appear subtly square or rounder to achieve a more balanced and even smile.

Whilst tooth reshaping is a safe and minor procedure when performed by an experienced dentist, it does require enamel removal, which is non-reversible. 

In the case of larger alterations to your smile, it’s best not to contour the teeth as they can become weaker, so alternative procedures are recommended in the case of bigger changes.

Don’t want to file teeth down?

Tooth contouring is not the only way we can reshape your teeth. For example, if you want to avoid invasive dentistry completely, you can opt for composite bonding, which uses resin applied to the tooth in layers to change its shape and size. 

However, we would have to make the other teeth relatively the same size as long teeth. Composite veneers might also be your first choice if you want to make your smile without causing any harm. 

The minimally invasive method is a non-permanent procedure that can treat several problems with the smile in one from just £350 per tooth.

4 years a customer and always professional yet friendly service. Corrected my major issues (fillings/caps) and while they're keen to ensure ongoing 'perfect teeth' they don't hard sell peripheral / optional treatments. Highly recommended

I was looking for somewhere with a personal touch, that I could trust and that’s what I got at Mint. They always remember my name and are so polite. After a year of zoom meetings I really wanted my teeth to be straight and the results completely surpassed my expectations. I now feel comfortable taking photos! The team explained everything clearly (I felt I could ask anything multiple times) appointments were always organised and it was a really easy, worthwhile process. My teeth look like my teeth but are now at their best.

The clinic is a really lovely place to visit - it is extremely clean and all of the staff are very friendly. They were kind and reassuring all the way through my Invisalign treatment - as well as having amazing technology at their disposal. Dr Imran is so accommodating and kept everything simple, addressing any concerns straight away. All in all I would definitely recommend Mint Dental Clinic, a lovely experience all round.

Over the past six years Dr Raj and Preanka and all of the team at Mint have been exceptional. Every member of the team is exemplary at their expertise and I've never felt in better hands at the dentist. Affordable and top of the range, I would recommend them to anyone.
