Lip Repositioning

Lip repositioning is a procedure that is appropriate for patients with a prominent upper jaw. These kinds of patients have an excessive amount of gum tissue that is exposed while smiling often referred to as a “gummy” smile. During this surgery, the upper lip is repositioned below its original location. In a severe case, the cosmetic dentist may need to reposition the lip in addition to Esthetic Crown Lengthening to create a dream smile for the patient.
