Integrative Management of the Gummy Smile: Lip repositioning, Crown Lengthening & Restorative Nuances

Description:
The gingival smiles can be mild, moderate and severe , according to the degree of gingival exposure while smiling . Depending on the etiology of the problem , mild and moderate gummy smiles can be treated with moderate periodontal plastic surgery , however for severe , this procedure is not enough . Currently botox is used as alternative, but this is only a temporary treatment of very short effectiveness. That is why we suggest the technique of surgical repositioning of the upper lip as an effective and definitive alternative to solve this aesthetic problem. We present Marjorie´s case, a 20 years old girl with a severe gummy smile , the patient presents her facial thirds well proportioned so a skeletal problem is discarded. We planned and performed surgery surgical repositioning of upper lip , followed , after three weeks of periodontal plastic surgery on ten of her upper pieces from second to second premolar. After two weeks impression was taken to process ten veneers . We also present part of the elaboration process of the veneers by our laboratory

Excessive Gingival Display Managed by Surgical Lip Reposition, Aesthetic Crown Lengthening and Veneers
Excessive gingival display can be managed by a variety of treatment modalities, depending on the etiology. Mild and moderate gummy smiles can be successfully treated by periodontal plastic surgery, however for excessive gingival display as in cases of VME II or III with 5 to 8 mm or more of gingival exposure this procedure is not enough. Many patients decline the more invasive Le Fort osteotomy and opt for a less invasive surgical lip repositioning procedure. Currently Botox is used as alternative, but this is only a temporary treatment with very short effectiveness. That is why we suggest surgical lip repositioning as an effective procedure to reduce gingival display by positioning the upper lip in a more coronal location. The long-term stability of the results remains to be seen, but it holds promise as an alternative treatment to more invasive procedures.

Peri-Implantitis: Diagnosis, Etiology and Treatment
The dental implant therapy has evolved both in implant surface and design. The reason for the initial crestal bone loss has been proven and the risks of having a peri-implantitis have increased due to the early exposure of roughened surface. The prevalence of peri-implantitis is at a range of 28 to 56%.

Minimally Invasive Tooth Replacement Strategies in the Esthetic Zone: The Evolution of New Age Concepts  Premium Member Content

Minimally Invasive Tooth Replacement Strategies in the Esthetic Zone: The Evolution of New Age Concepts
Modern Tooth Replacement Strategies are more concerned about esthetics than ever before especially in light of recent research that clearly defines the risk of resorption, ridge constriction, tissue recession and color changes that often occur following extraction and implant replacement. This presentation will describe the Dual Zone concepts recently published to address these issues as well partial extraction therapies which may play an expanding and more critical role in the future.
