What Causes Excessive Gum Display?
Most people who have too much gum showing in their smiles are born that way. You may have smaller teeth that make the appearance of your gums seem excessive. You may have gums that grow down onto the crowns of your teeth because of gum disease. Gum disease can cause you to have inflamed and swollen gums. That can cause your smile to look unhealthy and unattractive. Sometimes your upper lip is hypermobile which means more of your gums will show when you smile. This would not necessarily be fixed with gum reshaping. We would likely suggest our lip lowering surgery for that.
Who Needs Gum Reshaping?
If you do not like the way your smile looks because you have too much gum showing, then you might want to have your gums reshaped. This is primarily a cosmetic treatment. It can be done for someone who is susceptible to having repeat issues with gingivitis because of overgrowth of gums. That might be a medical reason to get this treatment done. It is however primarily sought out by people who would like to improve the appearance of their smile.
It is a very straightforward treatment with very little recovery period afterward. This can provide you with a better-looking smile that has lifelong benefits.
