What is a Gummy Smile?

A gummy smile, medically known as excessive gingival display, occurs when an unusually large amount of gum tissue is visible above the top teeth during smiling. It’s not just a cosmetic issue; it can sometimes indicate other dental concerns.

Causes of a Gummy Smile

The genesis of a gummy smile can vary, often involving one or more of the following factors:

  • Genetic Predisposition: Some individuals are naturally inclined to have more visible gum tissue.
  • Hyperactive Upper Lip: An overly active upper lip can rise higher than average, revealing more gum tissue.
  • Abnormal Dental Eruption: Teeth that haven’t emerged properly can seem shorter, thereby exaggerating the gum line’s prominence.
  • Excessive Gum Tissue: In some cases, there’s simply more gum tissue present, or the gums may appear enlarged due to inflammation or other conditions.

Comprehensive Gummy Smile Treatments at Genesis Dentists

In-Depth Consultation and Diagnosis: We begin with a meticulous examination, using advanced imaging techniques to determine the underlying cause of your gummy smile.

Tailored Treatment Options: Our treatment strategies are as unique as you are, potentially including:

  • Gum Reshaping and Contouring: This procedure involves sculpting the gum line to expose more of your natural teeth, thereby improving the proportionality of your smile. This can Also be done with lasers
  • Orthodontic Solutions: Misalignment can contribute to a gummy smile. We offer braces or clear aligners to correct alignment issues.
  • Botox Therapy: For those with hyperactive lip muscles, Botox injections can provide a temporary but effective solution by reducing the elevation of the upper lip.
  • Surgical Techniques: In more complex cases, surgical interventions such as crown lengthening or lip repositioning might be recommended.

Advantages of Gummy Smile Treatment

Aesthetic Enhancement: Addressing this can dramatically improve your smile’s aesthetics, bringing balance and harmony to your facial features.

Increased Confidence and Well-being: Our patients often report a significant boost in self-confidence and overall satisfaction with their appearance following treatment.

Oral Health Benefits: Certain treatments can also enhance oral health by facilitating better oral hygiene and reducing the risk of periodontal issues.

To address a gummy smile, our dental experts offer a procedure known as crown lengthening. During this treatment, the dentist artfully adjusts the gum tissue, either by removal or reshaping, to reveal more of the underlying tooth structure. This process can be executed through conventional surgical methods or with the precision of laser technology.

In select cases, orthodontic treatment may be recommended to reposition the upper jaw and teeth, further diminishing the appearance of a gummy smile.
