Gummy Smile Treatment

Explainer Video

Gummy smile treatment addresses excessive gingival display that occurs when smiling, where an unusually large portion of gum is visible above the top teeth, overshadowing their appearance. This condition can be due to various factors, including genetics, gum tissue overgrowth, or the way your upper lip moves. Thankfully, advancements in dental and cosmetic procedures offer effective solutions to enhance smile aesthetics by rebalancing the proportion of gums to teeth. These treatments not only improve the visual appeal of the smile but also boost confidence and self-esteem.

Frequently asked questions
and their answers

A gummy smile is most often caused by excessive gum tissue covering the teeth. Other causes include short teeth, overactive upper lip, and vertical maxillary excess.

Surgical procedures like gum contouring tend to produce longer-lasting results. However, some recurrence of gum tissue over time may necessitate touch-ups. Non-surgical options like Botox require maintenance treatments.

An oral exam, dental records, and cosmetic evaluation by your dentist will determine if solely gum reshaping, orthodontics, jaw surgery, Botox, or a combination is optimal for treating your gummy smile.

Recovery time depends on the treatment. Surgical procedures have 1-2 weeks of initial healing. Botox requires no downtime. Orthognathic surgery may require several weeks of recovery.

Yes, Botox injections and specialized orthodontic treatment can reduce excessive gingival display without surgery in some cases. These options have no cutting or sutures.

Botox takes effect in 3-10 days and results typically last 3-6 months. Regular maintenance injections are needed to sustain the aesthetic improvement of a gummy smile with Botox.
