I have a number of Google contacts who are showing incorrect information because Google is associating them with someone else with the same shared phone number (e.g. home phone) -- including my wife (shows my email address, job title, etc. in Google Contacts) and my parents. I know landlines and shared numbers are probably considered "quaint" nowadays, but still.

Short of removing the home (or otherwise shared) phone number from these affected contacts, is there any way to break that association and tell Google that no, they are in fact not the same person?

I should mention that in the cases where this happens, the common thread seems to be that the number in question is a Google Voice number that belongs to the person whose info is being incorrectly associated. For example, we use my GV number as our home phone number -- it's forwarded to our landline, and it's the only number we give out to people.
