A gummy smile is a common dental concern that many patients deal with. A gummy smile can cause the teeth to appear shorter or smaller than they actually are. For some patients, a gummy smile can be a source of embarrassment which may cause them to feel less confident in their smile. Most patients don’t even realize there is a treatment available to improve the appearance of a gummy smile.
A gummy smile may be the result of:
- An abnormal eruption of teeth
- The way that your upper jaw has developed
- The muscle in your upper lip is hyperactive
