Watch this video to learn more about the timeframe you can expect when undergoing a gummy smile treatment, depending on the methods required for your particular case.

The gummy smile procedure usually takes about if we do the crown lengthening maybe 45 minutes or one hour, depending on how wide area we are treating at the complexity of the case.
