Upper Lip Lift: Uncover the Beauty of Dentistry
Stanley, Kyle / Stanley, Helm Nejad / Caligiuri, Matthew / Schlichting, Luís Henrique / Bazos, Panaghiotis K. / Magne, Michel
If the treatment objective is to improve aesthetics in the anterior region, therapy is usually required where the intraoral hard and soft tissue is inadequate. These deficits are, however, often associated with problems involving aesthetics of the lip that are generally not factored in by the dental team. A predictable technique has been used in plastic surgery for decades in these cases, i.e. the upper lip lift. If the upper lip has again been restored to its optimum position, the results produced by the dental and dental technical team are also fully visible in the form of a youthful smile. With the introduction of this minimally invasive surgical technique in practical dental medicine, patients can benefit from a comprehensive orofacial approach in planning the aesthetics of the anterior teeth.
