Gummy Smile

If your teeth appear too short or if you feel the appearance of your upper teeth is overshadowed by excessive gum tissue, you may have a condition that is commonly called “gummy smile” or excessive gingival display. The teeth may actually be the proper length, but they’re covered with too much gum tissue.

If you think you have a gummy smile, visit us for evaluation and treatment. We can convert this by performing a procedure called crown lengthening. During this procedure, excess gum and bone tissue are reshaped to expose more of the natural tooth. The outcome is longer looking teeth and a winning smile.
