Probably not: Insurance plans usually do not cover cosmetic procedures.

Dental Insurance: Tooth shaping can also be called enamelplasty, if you not adding any other man made materials to reshape the teeth. Usually this is considered cosmetic. Most insurances do not cover any procedures that are deemed cosmetic.

Probably not: Tooth recontouring is cosmetic in nature, and will most probably not be covered under any insurance policy. The fee would be minimal, so it really should not be that expensive.

Tooth reshaping: also called dental contouring is a cosmetic procedure and not covered by dental insurance.

Very few: Most insurances do not cover cosmetic procedures. There are very few that do. You can have your dental office preautherize the procedures first.
