Why Do I Have Excessive Gingival Display?
There are a few reasons why you might have too much gum showing when you smile. We offer treatment solutions for each individual case of a gummy smile. One of the most common reasons why you have too much gum showing in your smile is if your top lip is hypermobile, meaning your lip moves too high up your gum line when you smile.
Another common reason why you have the appearance of a gummy smile would be if you have small teeth. Having small teeth can make the gums look too present in your smile which can hurt peoples’ confidence.
Lastly, we deal with a lot of clients who simply have an overgrowth of gums. Sometimes that is from gingivitis which can be treated to fix the issue, but other times, our patients simply have too much gum visible in their smile and they are unhappy with it. A sign of gingivitis is if your gums bleed very easily when you brush or floss.
What Can I Do to Fix It?
If the problem for you right now is that you have a hypermobile upper lip, we can perform a lip lowering surgery which is a quick, safe, and effective treatment option. The end results keep your lip line close to the top of your teeth, so it minimizes how much of your gums show.
If you have small teeth, we can perform a crown lengthening treatment for you so that your gums do not take over your entire smile. Often people with small teeth want a combination of crown lengthening as well as gum contouring.
We can help you determine the best option to give you the most attractive smile possible when you sit down for a free consultation with us.
