A gingival smile is characterized by the fact that the gums are exposed by more than three millimetres. In some cases, almost the entire gum can be visible; the teeth appear small and lose their aesthetic appeal. The cause can be either an upper lip that is too short, which simply cannot cover the gum when a person smiles or gum that is too large, covering the teeth more than it should.

There are four different treatments to eliminate the problem:
An orthodontist can solve the problem if the problem occurs due to an incorrect bite or deformation of the jawbone tissue. The long-term wearing of braces is suggested in such cases. They significantly reduce correction time and make this process more comfortable; the patient practically does not change his usual way of life.
Everything is selected individually, depending on the person’s age and the presence of diseases. If necessary, other methods, cosmetic or surgical, can be used in parallel.
Correction of Upper Lip with Surgery:
The method is resorted to in a significantly shortened bridle. The operation is best done in childhood; in adult patients, in this way, it is not always possible to achieve the desired results. Correction of the upper lip is performed operatively by excision of a section of the mucous membrane on the inner surface. The surgeon then attaches the lip a little lower than before, making the smile more harmonious.
It is used in cases when gum covers the roots of the teeth and the crown. With the help of a laser, this problem can be solved without complications, side effects, and the minimum possible rehabilitation period. But still, it is used only in extreme cases, only when it is impossible to perform a correction in other ways.
Another way refers to extreme measures. It is used for improperly formed or damaged tissues of the face and jaws. In such cases, a gummy smile is the result of several symptoms. In the most challenging situations, several operations are performed. Modern doctors with sufficient qualifications, experience, and high-tech equipment can solve maxillofacial problems of almost any nature and scale.
Gummy Smile Treatment FAQ’s:
Braces or clear aligners are examples of orthodontic therapy that can help correct a bad bite that is the cause of a gummy grin. The goal of treatment is to straighten the bite and minimize the amount of gum tissue that rises during speaking, laughing, or smiling. You can also get rid of symptoms like neck and jaw aches by aligning your smile.
It has been discovered by exercise therapists that gummy smiles can be less noticeable if face exercises are performed daily, one to two times a day.
There are four specific treatments available to address a gummy grin. Incorrect bites are corrected via orthodontic correction, which uses braces. For a shorter bridle, surgery of the top lip is advised, ideally during youth. Using laser technology, gingivectomy treats situations in which gum tissue covers the roots of teeth. Maxillofacial surgery should only be used in extreme cases where the tissues of the jaw and face are malformed.
A gummy smile is usually nothing to worry about. But it might be, which is why those who notice that their smiles seem gummier than usual should schedule an appointment with a dentist immediately. A cosmetic dentist can offer the right care if someone's concerns are only aesthetic.
Sometimes the cause of a gummy smile is an expansion of the gum tissue or the maxillary bone, both of which can run in families. Because of this, the upper jaw must stretch excessively forward or upward, increasing the quantity of gum tissue that is visible when someone smiles.
When the other person sees their gummy smile, they always feel bad about it. When done correctly and at a credible facility, gum surgery typically has no negative effects on health or aftereffects. Therefore, you should seek treatment as soon as possible to enhance your beauty and self-assurance.
The treatment is very successful. By exposing some of the teeth and reducing the gums, the procedure will increase tooth visibility. Your smile will look more lovely thanks to the harmony that the treatment can help you attain.
