Gummy Smile

The appearance of a gummy smile occurs when a large amount of gum tissue is displayed when smiling. It is caused when the proportion of teeth, upper lip and upper jaw are not in harmony. Key contributors to a gummy smile can include an overactive muscle in the upper lip, a thin upper lip, short teeth and excess gum tissue.

A gummy smile can play a huge role in self-confidence and self-esteem. There are many different treatment options that can help correct and improve a gummy smile, which are determined by the cause of the condition. Aesthetic treatments such as dermal fillers and toxin can be very successful and produce effective results in both reducing gum visibility and restoring confidence.
