A lot of patients will come and ask me to improve their smile and the first thing that we do is take a picture of them. In the picture, we try to analyze their face as well. The lips, the teeth and the face all work together. For some patients, they have the problem of not showing enough tooth structure and so we can easily lengthen or rejuvenate or make those teeth more youthful by adding length in their teeth. But, for some patients, the patient smiles too much, and they have what we call a gummy smile, or they show a lot of pink or gums in their full smile. That's easily correctable by a gum surgery or I call it a gum plastic surgery. In essence, it's a gum lift, where the gums are repositioned at a higher level and then our veneers can be added to rejuvenate the teeth. It's a very predictable procedure and has great, great impact on the patient's smile and confidence and their overall look as well.
