Gummy smile, 28 year-old woman

A 28 year-old lady inquired about her chances to reduce gummy smile. Facial and occlusal investigation was performed. Vertical maxillary excess and retruded lower jaw as well as distal bite were diagnosed for this patient. The orthodontic setup was finished after 1,5 years and the patient went for the surgery.

Double jaw osteotomy and genioplasty was performed. The patient can benefit from her reduced gum show upon smiling and improved facial profile. She is happy with her correct occlusion too.
