The term “perfect smile” is something you hear thrown around, particularly when people are talking about a particular actress or model that seems to have just the right look. We all set a goal for ourselves to have that perfect smile and while you may be happy with the smile you have, there is something about it that seems less-than-perfect to you. Every time you smile at yourself in the mirror you feel like there is too much gum tissue showing, making your gums and teeth look large. You may feel self-conscious about it and find yourself laughing and smiling less because of it. The condition you face, known as a gummy smile, is not an uncommon one and you should know that there is a place you can go for treatment for a gummy smile in Beverly Hills.
Affecting More Than You Realize
A gummy smile is something that a larger portion of the population deals with than you may know about. Studies estimate that up to 15% of all people in the United States have a gummy smile and many may not even be aware of the condition. The issue is more common in women than men and tends to affect younger people more. Generally speaking, a gummy smile is when your smile has a larger ratio of gum tissue exposed when you smile compared to your teeth. This can make your smile look awkward, and it can affect your self-esteem and confidence.
