Masking procedures can be used for a variety of situations and must be tailored to the patient's individual needs. Although they can result in esthetic changes for the patient, they do little for functional concerns. The most commonly used procedure is a bony augmentation genioplasty. It is most effective when a patient is genially deficient and has an overjet in the range of 3 to 5 mm.
