Get a Gorgeous Smile With Lip Repositioning Surgery 

Your smile is your signature, reflecting your joy, confidence, and personality. However, for some, a “gummy smile” can detract from its beauty, causing self-consciousness and affecting overall well-being. Fortunately, advances in periodontal surgery offer a transformative solution: lip repositioning surgery.

Understanding the Gummy Smile

A gummy smile occurs when an excessive amount of gum tissue is displayed above the upper teeth when smiling. While this condition is often harmless, it can lead to feelings of insecurity and impact one’s self-esteem. The underlying causes vary, including excessive gum tissue growth, abnormal tooth eruption, or hyperactive upper lip muscles.

The Solution: Lip Repositioning Surgery

Lip repositioning surgery, in the qualifying patient, is a minimally invasive procedure, performed by a periodontist, designed to correct a gummy smile by repositioning the upper lip to reveal less of the gum while smiling. During the procedure, an incision is made in the mucosa inside the upper lip, allowing the surgeon to adjust the positIon of the lip to reveal less of the exposed gum above the teeth while smiling. This procedure works alone only if the  lengths and shapes of individual teeth are normal and need not be corrected. It solely addresses the excess vertical dimmension of gum above these teeth.The result is a more balanced and aesthetically pleasing smile.

Benefits Beyond Aesthetics

Beyond its cosmetic benefits, lip repositioning surgery can profoundly impact your overall well-being. By enhancing the harmony of your smile, this procedure boosts confidence and self-assurance, allowing you to engage more confidently in social and professional settings. Moreover, it can alleviate the psychological distress associated with a gummy smile, fostering a positive self-image and mental health.

Look and Feel Your Best

Investing in your periodontal health through lip repositioning surgery is an investment in yourself. By addressing an underlying cause of a gummy smile, you can unlock newfound confidence and radiate positivity in every interaction. Moreover, improved dental aesthetics can enhance your overall facial harmony, complementing your natural features and accentuating your beauty.

Your smile is a reflection of your inner happiness and confidence. If a gummy smile has been holding you back, consider the transformative power of lip repositioning surgery. Embrace the opportunity to look and feel your best, radiating confidence with every smile. Consult your periodontist to see if you are a candidate for this procedure and explore how it can enhance your overall appearance.
