Abstract
Orthodontic correction of malocclusion associated with excessive gingival display presents with challenges in the way of aesthetics, especially while correcting a problem which is beyond the boundaries of orthodontics alone as the issue to be addressed is not skeletal in its origin. Aim of this case report was to attain an aesthetically pleasing profile by employing orthodontic treatment for correcting the malocclusion and to mask the gummy smile without undertaking any major jaw repositioning procedure. These two objectives were achieved by using class II elastics for dentoalveolar correction and lip lengthening technique for correcting excessive gingival display that resulted in delivering a favourable profile and satisfaction to the patient.

Key words: Profile, Excessive gingival display, Dentoalveolar correction, Class II elastics, Lip lengthening
