Patient shown presented a gummy smile. The crowns of her teeth were not fully exposed so when she smiled, a large amount of gum showed. We discussed a smile enhancement by trimming the gums to expose the entire crown of her teeth. The treatment took 45 minutes with local anesthesia and sedation to relax her.
