Aesthetic Lip Repositioning

An aesthetic lip repositioning can ensure symmetry and harmony to the overall appearance of the smile. The result is a more attractive smile. This procedure is often used in combination with a smile makeover

Wow, what a transformation! 😁 This patient came in to get a smile makeover in time for her 21st birthday, she was unhappy that her teeth were too long and her smile was gummy. . We reduced the gumminess of her smile with a gum lift and made her lips fuller [permanently, you heard right; permanently] with a lip repositioning. . This was followed by a facial smile design and 10 porcelain veneers, in less than 6 weeks we completed a total smile makeover, her smile is now confident, harmonious, natural and beautiful! 🙌🏼🧡 . . . #floss #flossinlajolla #flossdental #sandiego #lajolla #lajolladentist #drkiyan #implant #cosmetic #restorativedentistry #smile #smilevirtualconsult #newsmile #smilemakeover #transformation #beforeandafter #losangeles #socal #beverlyhills #veneers #veneer #porcelainveneers #porcelain #dentalmakeover #teethwhitening #gummysmile #gumlift #facialaestheticdentistry #carillas #виниры

What Is a Gummy Smile?

In a perfect smile, the upper lip sits just above the top of the teeth. A “gummy smile,” however, exposes a larger than average amount of gum tissue and has a noticeably disproportionate gum-to-tooth ratio. Gummy smiles affect about 15% of all Americans, especially women and younger people.

“Hyperactive” lips, or lips that pull high when smiling, are frequently thin. After aesthetic lip repositioning, the lip usually becomes slightly everted, or “plump” without having the unnatural appearance of fillers.

That natural results! 🙌🏼☺️ This client was unhappy about her miss-matched crown, the space between her teeth, and the gumminess of her smile. . We whitened her teeth, lifted her gums, and repositioned her lip. . The result was a reduction in the gumminess of her smile and a fuller upper lip. . This was followed by replacement of her mismatched dental work with a custom matched porcelain crown and bonding and contouring of the adjacent teeth. . The result is a smile that is not gummy, lips that are full, and teeth that blend flawlessly and naturally! 🧡 . . . #floss #flossinlajolla #flossdental #sandiego #lajolla #lajolladentist #drkiyan #implant #cosmetic #restorativedentistry #smile #smilevirtualconsult #newsmile #smilemakeover #transformation #beforeandafter #losangeles #socal #beverlyhills #veneers #veneer #porcelainveneers #porcelain #dentalmakeover #teethwhitening #gummysmile #gumlift #facialaestheticdentistry #carillas #виниры

Am I a Candidate for Gummy Smile Treatment?

Very simply, if your upper lip reveals a substantial amount of gum tissue when you smile, you can benefit from aesthetic lip repositioning. Sometimes, people don’t realize that their high lip line is the problem and instead think that they need to have their teeth lengthened or gums raised. We can combine these treatments with lip lowering surgery, but it’s likely that lip lowering alone will give you the attractive smile you’re looking for.

Will aesthetic lip repositioning make me look unnatural?

No, it can actually provide multiple improvements to your appearance. In addition to covering more of your gums, lip lowering surgery often makes the upper lip look fuller and more attractive.

The best way to find out if we can improve your smile is to schedule a consultation appointment. At this appointment we will take high definition photos of your teeth and smile, and we will take measurements in order to find out how we can best achieve the results you desire. Dramatic and beautiful results are accomplished with this simple, conservative and gentle procedure.
