Your smile is one of the first things people notice, and if you are dissatisfied with the way your teeth look, this can severely impact your confidence. Fortunately, cosmetic dental procedures are available to fix a host of dental insecurities, including oversized teeth. If you think your teeth are too large, see your dentist to see if he can file down your teeth using a procedure called enameloplasty.

Skill level:


  1. 1

    Book an appointment with your dentist. You should never try to file down or reshape your own teeth because once you alter your teeth, there is no going back. Attempting to fix your own teeth could result in expensive dentist visits to correct your mistakes.

  2. 2

    Have the dentist examine your teeth to see if enameloplasty is the correct procedure. She will likely take X-rays to see if the procedure is the correct choice.

  3. 3

    Have your teeth cleaned. The dentist will clean the surface of the teeth that need to be reshaped.

  4. 4

    Allow the dentist to shave the surface of the teeth using the appropriate dental tools. He will use a drill to slowly shave and contour the surface of the teeth. This will reduce their size.

  5. 5

    Have your teeth polished. The dentist will smooth and polish your teeth to make sure the edges of the newly filed teeth are natural looking.
