I Have A Gummy Smile

I Show Too Much Gum When I Smile, What Can be Done?

You may be surprised to learn that there isn’t a clear-cut definition of what a “gummy smile” entails. So, when people ask questions along the lines of “do my gums show too much when I smile?”, the answer tends to be somewhat subjective. Simply put, a gummy smile generally refers to a smile that shows in excess of 2-3 mm of gums when smiling.

Some research has suggested that excessive gum is more common in women than men. While it isn’t necessarily a cause for concern, many people who consider themselves to have excessive gum feel that it detracts from their smile. This often leads to them seeking dental attention in order to regain their confidence.

What Can Be Done to Alleviate Too Much Gum?

There are some simple procedures that can help with a gummy smile which includes teeth straightening, such as braces, teeth aligners, gum surgery and/or porcelain veneers.
