Kate is a beautiful girl, but her gummy smile made her hold back when she laughed, smiled, and even joined a conversation. So even with a naturally bubbly and expressive personality, her gummy smile really inhibited her and made her hold back! During her consultation we did a thorough exam to determine the best way to correct the problem. X-rays confirmed what the exam revealed -- Kate actually had a lot of beautiful teeth hidden under those gums all these years! We scheduled a gumlift procedure to remove the excess gum tissue. Now, Kate is more confident and able to express her true personality. Only one week after the procedure, Kate was smiling and not holding back! Her only regret? That she didnt do it sooner.
