Gums

Some people suffer from what we call a “gummy smile”

This usually occurs when the appearance of the teeth are small or short and there is more than usual gum tissue visible when the person smiles.

One of the more common reasons for this condition is that during childhood development, the person’s gums simply grew a little bit more than the average. Hidden underneath that abundance of gummy skin though are healthy teeth, which have developed normally.

To correct this particular condition is quite simple and easy. All that is required is to re-contour the gum line, so that more of the teeth are visible.

If you have a gummy smile that worries you, ask us to discuss this with you, as some simple gum line contouring may correct your situation.
