What is a Gummy Smile?

As the name suggests a “Gummy ‘ smile is where there is more visibility of upper gums is a common condition. There are several causes for gummy smiles — determining which one is the first step to having your appearance changed. A gummy smile occurs when the gum tissue conceals more of the surfaces of the teeth than normal.

Problems with Gummy Smiles?

If tooth to gum proportionality is normal, then the cause may be upper lip movement. When we smile, muscles cause our lips to retract 6-8 mm from the lip’s resting position. If the amount of movement is greater (meaning the lip is hypermobile), it may show too much of the gums. The upper jaw can also extend too far forward and cause the gums to appear too prominent.

What is Gum shaping treatment ?

Gum reshaping or tissue sculpting is a cosmetic dental procedure that can even out an uneven gum line and gives you a smile you can wear with confidence. Nxt dent can make your smile the smile you deserve by gum lifting and reshaping! With gum lifting or gum reshaping, we can eliminate excessive gum tissue with a laser – quickly, safely, and with minimal discomfort, for a more natural-looking smile.

Which are the treatments provided?

If you’re unhappy with your smile, come in for a consultation with one of our periodontists to see if we can help you have the smile you always wanted. There are several ways to fix a gummy smile, depending on what’s causing it.

Gums: When gum tissue overgrows and conceals most of the or major part of your upper teeth, a periodontal gum surgery technique is performed to remove the excess tissue. The treatment could be ‘ crown lengthening''. In cases where few teeth are affected, gummy smiles can be fixed by laser treatment.

Teeth: Variations in teeth size could be a concern for getting gummy smiles. In such cases, your teeth can be made to appear longer by capping them with crowns or covering them with thin porcelain veneers.

Lip: The upper lip typically moves 6 to 8 millimeters from a closed position to a full smile. If the lip rises higher, then more gum tissue will be revealed. In this case, the muscles that control the lip will need to be modified so they don’t raise the lip as much.

Jaw: Sometimes the upper jaw which is also known as Maxilla is too long for the face, a condition referred to as Vertical Maxillary Excess. If this is the case, the jaw is repositioned with orthognathic surgery, performed by an oral & maxillofacial surgeon.
