These pre-op pictures display a pronounced frenum which is in

need of removal to allow orthodontic completion of the case. 

This is a 1 week post-op of the area following the frenectomy. Following several months of

healing, the area blends in beautifully with a very cosmetic result.

These procedures usually take less than 30 minutes and are essentially painless. There is minimal postoperative discomfort.
