Are you self-conscious about your gummy smile? Do you find yourself hiding your teeth in photos or avoiding smiling altogether? If so, you’re not alone. Many adults feel embarrassed about excessive gingival display and are looking for a solution to their gummy smile. In fact, a recent study showed that more than half of Americans feel insecure about their teeth and the appearance of their smile. Lip repositioning is one effective treatment option that gives people back their confidence.
Lip repositioning is a cosmetic dental procedure that can help correct a gummy smile by repositioning the upper lip and reducing the amount of gum tissue visible when smiling. This treatment can be performed by a skilled and experienced Beverly Hills dentist and typically requires only one or two visits. There are many benefits to lip repositioning. One of the biggest benefits is that it can help to enhance your self-confidence. You may avoid smiling or laughing in public if you’re self-conscious about your gummy smile.
Lip repositioning can help to give you the confidence to smile and laugh freely without feeling self-conscious about your gummy smile. Another benefit of gummy smile correction is that it can help improve your smile’s overall appearance. A gummy smile can make your teeth look small and uneven, but lip repositioning can help to reveal more of your teeth and create a more balanced and symmetrical smile. Lip lowering can also be an effective treatment for patients who have experienced changes in the appearance of their gummy smile over time.
As we age, the skin and muscles around our mouths can change, causing the upper lip to appear shorter and revealing more of the gum tissue. Lip repositioning can help to restore a more youthful and attractive appearance to your smile. If you’re considering lip repositioning, it’s important to find a dentist who is experienced and skilled in this procedure. A good dentist can evaluate your individual case and recommend the best treatment options for your needs. They will also be able to answer any questions and provide you with all the information you need to make an informed decision about lip lowering.

“I Went From Gummy to Glam!” – Sarah Johnson, 24
Dr. Farnoosh’s innovative, new method of treatment of the “Gummy Smile” (Lip Repositioning) was published in Look Magazine.
“I’ve always disliked my gummy smile and overbite – I thought they made me look like a horse. As I got older, I became increasingly self-conscious about it. I’d keep my mouth closed in photos or cover it with my hand when I laughed at jokes.
I didn’t think there was any way to fix my gummy smile. I saw many doctors, and all they could offer was surgery to break my jaw and reset it – a painful procedure with a long recovery time.
Then this year, I was online when I came across a YouTube video showing a Beverly Hills dentist, Dr. Alex Farnoosh explaining a lip repositioning procedure to lower a high lip line so that it revealed less gum when you smile. By chance, I had a trip to visit a friend in California planned, so I called Dr. Farnoosh’s office to discuss the operation and sent over a picture of my mouth. I was so excited when he said he could help.
I had lip repositioning surgery while visiting my friend. It was a simple procedure and took just an hour. Cuts were made in the piece of skin that connects my upper lip to my gums, then my lip to my gums, and then my lip was reattached to my gum further down, preventing it from moving above the gumline when I smile.
It took five days for the swelling to go down, which made eating difficult, so I had to stick to soft foods – but the transformation was instant. While my lip felt slightly tighter when I smiled at first, I’m used to this now. My smile looks normal, and as the incisions were inside my mouth, there was no visible scar.
Now my friends and family are thrilled to see me smiling for a change. It cost me $4000, but it was worth every penny. The change to my face means more than anything else I could buy with that money. My new look has given me something to smile about, and I’m proud to show it off!”
