Improve the Appearance of a Gummy Smile with Lip Repositioning
The Lip Repositioning is a minor plastic surgery procedure where the inside of the lip is attached closer
to the top of the teeth. We bring the attachment to the gum lower so that the lip doesn’t pull up as high
when you smile. This also increases the fullness of the lip and makes it look more attractive.
Lip Lowering Procedure
A lip lowering or lip repositioning procedure can be done in a situation where the teeth are of normal size
but the lip pulls up too high and displays an excessive amount of gum tissue, making the smile look
“gummy”. The lip repositioning procedure reduces the degree of lip retraction and minimizes exposure of
gingival tissue, allowing a more “normal,” pleasing smile.
