Gummy Smile Correction

Gummy Smile Correction

To Provide Comprehensive Quality Care :

The appeal of a smile has to do with both aesthetics and perception. People usually seek cosmetic dental treatments because they are unhappy with their smiles. Some individuals’ feel they show too much gum tissue or their gums are too prominent when they smile. Another problem is either their teeth appear too small, or so much gum tissue is visible, and a gummy smile can make a person feel self-conscious.

So what is the definition of a gummy smile? That’s a matter of perception, and therefore will vary from person to person. But it has been shown that a smile will usually be perceived as gummy when four millimeters — a tad more than an eighth of an inch — of gum tissue shows.

Many people are not aware that there are options for correcting or altering the appearance of an excessively gummy smile. If a gummy smile impacts a person’s comfort, and well-being, it could just be time to do something about it. First, your dentist will need to determine exactly why your smile looks gummy because understanding the cause always directs us towards the best solution.
