This is a typical gummy smile.

The outline of the new smile line is cut into the gum tissue.

The excess bone is trimmed away, making room for the gum lift.

The gum is sewn up into the new position leaving the teeth looking too long.

To eliminate the look of longer teeth, porcelain veneers or crowns are made.

A new smile is created more in harmony with the overall face.  No more gummy smile
