Lip Repositioning

Lip repositioning is a surgical procedure used for correction of excessive gum display on patients with a prominent upper jaw. A “gummy” smile occurs when an excessive amount of gum tissue is exposed while smiling. During lip repositioning, the upper lip is repositioned below its original location. In a severe case, Dr. Ghayoumi may also need to perform esthetic crown lengthening in conjunction with lip repositioning to create a dream smile for the patient.
