Would Mouth Widening Create A Better Smile?
Q: Dr. Eppley, Would a lateral commissuroplasty give me a better smile? I believe I have a forced smile because of my small mouth.
A: A lateral commissuroplasty or mouth widening procedure would certainly increase your mouth width which, when the dynamic action of smiling occurs, will give it a wider or more evident smile. It can also help turn up the corners of the mouth a bit which I think is what really makes a smile better more so than just width.
