Is it worth undergoing surgery to correct a gummy smile?
If you are bothered by how your smile appears, this surgery can help you feel more confident – and smile more!
What causes a gummy smile?
A “gummy smile” can be the result of the size and shape of your lips, how your facial muscles work, the size of your teeth, and the extent of the gum tissue you have.
What is lip lowering?
Lip lowering, or lip repositioning is a surgical procedure that resolves a gummy smile by restricting how high the muscles (elevator lip muscles) can pull the upper lip, so less of the gum structure is revealed.
