answers the most frequently asked questions about gummy smile correction

Is a "gummy smile" considered unattractive?

If you have a “gummy smile,” consult with a dentist. If there are no medical reasons to correct a “gummy smile,” feel no pressure to change the appearance of your smile. We want you to feel confident with your smile – whatever that means to you, we are here to offer support.

Can a "gummy smile" go away on its own?

A gummy smile, or excessive gum exposure, is caused by several factors, including the position of the teeth, the anatomy of the jaw, and increased muscle activity. These factors will not change without intervention, so a gummy smile will not go away on its own. However, there are effective treatment methods that can significantly improve the aesthetics of the smile, such as orthodontic correction, surgical procedures on the gums, or the use of botulinum toxin to reduce muscle activity in the upper lip. The solution should be tailored to the individual needs of the patient after a thorough diagnosis of the causes of the gummy smile.

Is a "gummy smile" harmful to health?

A “gummy smile” does not always pose a health threat and therefore does not always need to be corrected. Often, people with a “gummy smile” experience issues such as gum inflammation and pain, as well as gum diseases and bad breath. Talk to your dentist to see if your “gummy smile” puts your oral health at risk.
