Lip Repositioning

Lip repositioning is a procedure that can be used for correction of excessive gum display on patients with a prominent upper jaw depending on the diagnosis. 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 surgeon may need to reposition the lip in addition to Esthetic Crown Lengthening to create a dream smile for the patient.
