High Lip Line

When a person shows more gum than actual teeth, they are considered to have a High Lip Line. Under normal conditions, a person's smile would only reveal all tooth and a small amount of gum tissue. In the case of a high lip line, a person's smile can reach the top portion of a tooth's roots. There are a few procedures utilized by cosmetic dentists to combat a high lip line. One of the common approaches is Gingivectomy (or the removal of excess gum tissue) through laser technology. In more severe cases, some patients may have what is called a "hyper-mobile" lip which extends too far up when smiling. In this situation, a doctor may reattach the gum tissue under the lip to immobilize certain muscles that are used when smiling.
