Melanie gummy smile transformation with veneers and gum laser surgery


Melanie's extreme gum growth caused a pronounced gummy smile, leading to bullying at school and making her hesitant to smile broadly, despite her naturally joyful personality. Her smile makeover was completed with Picasso Porcelain Veneers®️ and Gum Laser Surgery by Dr. Dee at Vogue Dental Studios.

Melanie's Concerns

  • Gummy Smile

  • Small Teeth

  • Aesthetic

Melanie is a naturally joyful person with a warm personality, but her excessive gummy smile made her feel hesitant to show her happiness. From a young age, she experienced extreme gum growth, resulting in small teeth that barely peeked through. The bullying she faced at school because of her gummy smile left her feeling self-conscious, holding back from smiling as broadly as she would like. Despite her cheerful disposition, the fear of being teased or judged for her smile kept her from fully expressing her happiness.

Melanie's Resolution

Dr. Dee recommended a combination of Picasso Porcelain Veneers®️ and Gum Laser Surgery to address Melanie's excessive gum growth and create a more balanced, aesthetically pleasing smile. We loved seeing Melanie being able to smile as much as possible.
