Aesthetic Lip Repositioning Procedure

In this case, a crown lengthening of the upper teeth and a lip repositioning procedure were performed.

During the first consultation, I informed the patient that because of the severity of her gummy smile, a crown lengthening was not going to be sufficient to address her concern. Her diagnosis was a combination of :

-Vertical maxillary excess (excessive bulging protrusion of the upper jaw bone)

-Short clinical crown (excess of gum tissue covering a portion of the teeth that should be exposed)

-Hyper-active lip (the muscle that elevate the upper lip raise the lip to a level higher than normal)

Please note:

Hyperactive lips are frequently thin. After lip repositioning procedure, the lip also becomes slightly everted, creating a fuller, plumper lip.
