Transform Your Smile with Gum Recontouring

Gum Recontouring and Reshaping in the Lander Area

Here at Olsen Orthodontics, we are proud to offer gum reshaping and recontouring. Gum recontouring is where we literally re-shape the gum in order to achieve the desired look or effect. There are a couple of reasons why we might suggest gum recontouring! For one, if you feel like you have a “gummy smile”, where a lot of your gums show when you smile, we can shave down the gum to show more of the tooth. We also might suggest gum recontouring if there’s not enough of your tooth to work with for proper orthodontic treatment.

A worry for a lot of our patients is if gum recontouring hurts, and this is a totally normal concern. While you might feel a bit of discomfort during your treatment, it by no means hurts! Our top priority is to make our patients happy and comfortable during their treatment. So, if you are looking for gum recontouring in the Lander area, look no further than Olsen Orthodontics!
