Gingival smile is a constant complaint and its treatment comprises simple methods such as the use of botulinum toxin, and even complex ones, such as orthognathic surgery. This paper reports the treatment of gingival smile through orofacial biomodelation, which creates a shield in the canine fossa area, avoiding the exaggerated gingival display upon smiling due to a wide action of the levator muscle of angle of mouth.
