What is a Gummy Smile?
In a dentist’s office, they’re called “excessive gingival displays.” Gingival tissue, which is the clinical word for ‘gum,’ surrounds your teeth, providing a tight seal within the framework of your mouth.
A gummy smile usually is not a medical concern, but it can be a significant aesthetic concern. If you hesitate to smile because you’re worried about the amount of gum tissue you show when you do, you may have a gummy smile. Fortunately, there are many treatments available to address this issue.
How Did I Get a Gummy Smile?
For some people, it’s as simple as having a high lip line. This means that when you smile, you show a significant amount of upper gum tissue instead of just the upper teeth and the small amount of gum tissue between the teeth.
Sometimes abnormalities can occur when adult teeth come in to replace baby teeth. Extra gum tissue can form around these new teeth, making them look unusually short, even if they are a normal length.
A hyperactive upper lip muscle can cause a gummy smile. Jawbone growth and development can cause a gummy smile. In other words, there are a lot of potential ways and very little you can do to avoid them that will give you a gummy smile.
Gummy Smile Treatment Options
There are a range of approaches that are known collectively as “crown lengthening procedures,” and they are designed to maximize the appearance of the white crowns of your teeth when you smile while minimizing the appearance of excessive gum tissue. Your options will be discussed during your consultation with one of our specialists
