In brief: No
I would see your dentist to have bonding done on this tooth.
You have already lost enamel on your tooth so contouring will only remove more.. The better choice is using composite to re-establish the contours of the tooth.

In brief: No
Erorsion means chemical loss of tooth structure.
Tooth countouring is for shaping teeth, but by nature it is also reductive.
