  • Upper labial frenum excision do not cause such problem. It may be due to the upper front teeth which are out. Some times when the teeth are put they do not form the proper arch or they are not properly positioned because of which the lips looks unsupported and it gives broader looks to the face. You can discuss this with your dentist and if possible get the adjustments done.Some times minor adjustments in the denture solve the problems.
