An esthetic smile is directly related to the alignment and contour of the gingiva. Excessive gingival exposure (gummy smile) may be the reason for an unaesthetic smile. It can be caused by various etiological factors, one such factor is altered passive eruption. We report a case of a 24-year-old female patient who came with the chief complaint of an unaesthetic smile, diagnosed with altered passive eruption along with its surgical management involving an internal bevel gingivectomy and osseous resective procedure.
