What is a “Gummy Smile?”
A gummy smile is a smile in which too much of the upper gum is visible when you smile. There are a variety of reasons for a gummy smile. Sometimes, heredity simply provided an overabundance of gum space. Teeth may be a lot smaller in size and collectively than the gums, too. Another reason for a gummy smile is that the upper lip is drastically thinner, smaller or both as compared to both the gum and teeth region and to the lower lip. Whatever your “why,” gone are the days when you must just live with a gummy smile if it is something you’d like to improve upon.
