Treatment of the “gummy smile” is one of the most overwhelmingly satisfying procedures we do in our practice. Patients are able to show off their newly sculpted smile within minutes of the procedure. In a short outpatient procedure, excess gum and bone (if necessary) is sculpted away to expose the natural tooth structure hidden below.
Ana presented to us in 1998 just prior to some big changes in her life: completion of her post-graduate residency, a trans-Atlantic move back to Greece, and her upcoming wedding. She sought us out to finally get the smile she always envisioned before the Big Day. As you can see below, the results were dramatic and beautiful - and due to her move, the “Final” photos are from just 3 weeks post-surgery. No additional dental work was needed nor performed in Ana’s case.
Thanks to Dr. Lorenzana’s involvement in several international groups and congresses, he was able to recently reunite with Ana in Barcelona, Spain, at the ITI Annual General Meeting (AGM). It’s like not a day has passed!
