The gummy canted smile. How do you correct this situation without surgery? ????Difficult at best to get a beautiful result. A decade ago this case would require orthodontics and a maxillary LeFort surgery to impact the maxillae to show less gum tissue. Today we can use 4 Vector TADs (anchors) to impact the maxillae and avoid a costly and invasive surgery ???????????????????? This case took 32 months of treatment time due to the patient not deciding to fix her gummy smile until later into treatment. Treatment time in a similar case usually takes around 24 months.
