Gummy Smile

Gummy Smile

A gummy smile is exposure of too much gum tissue above the top teeth when you smile. Patients who smile with about four millimetres or a tad more than an eighth of an inch of gum tissue exposed have gummy smiles.

A gummy smile is also called an excessive gingival display, and you will likely know a gummy smile when you see one. However, some patients are concerned about their gummy smiles, making them feel self-conscious about smiling.

Fortunately, gummy smiles can be fixed. However, the treatment options for a gummy smile vary on the cause of excessive gingival display and the condition of your lip, jaw, teeth, and gums.

What causes gummy smiles?

In most cases, the causes of gummy smiles involve your teeth, lips, jaw or gums, which happen to be the key components that compose your smile aesthetics.

All you need to know about Gummy Smiles

In most cases, the causes for gummy smiles involve your teeth, lips, jaw or gums, which happen to be the key components that compose your smile aesthetics.

Here are a number of causes for excessive gingival display:

Indeed, you inherit most facial structures from your parents, including your nose, bone, gum, lip, and teeth structures. Thus, if your parents have a gummy smile condition, it is most likely that you will acquire them;

When teeth appear short because they erupted improperly and remain partially covered by gum tissue.

There are patients whose gum tissues tend to loosen and cover more teeth as they age. This results in smaller teeth and lowered gum line exposure.

When your upper lip is too short, it tends to expose more of your gummy smile.

A hyperactive upper lip that is normal in length when the face is resting but lifts too high when smiling, hence, exposing a lot of excess gum tissue.

This is a condition where your upper gums are long or enlarged.

This is an overgrowth of the upper jaw which makes the gums bulge out.

Patients suffering from “long face syndrome” resulting from difficulties with breathing through the nose during development that leads to the downward growth of the upper jaw rather than the widening of the maxilla.

While these causes seem to be unavoidable, many dental and cosmetic procedure can help treat a gummy smile.

Many treatments can help combat a gummy smile. Since you now know the underlying cause of your gummy smile, you may now consider the following solutions to help ease your smile gummy condition.

Since this condition involves the teeth, lips, jaw, and gums, one way to find a solution for a gummy smile is to visit your dentist or orthodontic doctor.

Here are a few common treatments that can help shape your gummy aesthetics:

  • Gingivectomy: This treatment consists of removing and recontouring the gum tissue around the upper teeth to achieve a more aesthetic or hygienic position.
  • Veneers: These are very thin porcelain shells that can help improve the aesthetics of your mouth when you wear them, including making your smile look less gummy.
  • Braces: A dentist can treat a patient suffering from a gummy smile by realigning his or her teeth with braces.
  • Jaw Surgery: This process involves the “sculpting” of the amount of gum tissue and the jawbones to which they attach to reduce the appearance of a gummy smile.
  • Lengthening of Teeth Crowns: This is a dental procedure that can enhance your oral structures while exposing longer and more uniform teeth that have been covered by excess gum.
  • Laser treatment. This is a common option for patients when the gum tissue is the problem.
  • Gum Lift: This is a dental surgery that improves the position and contour of the gums while exposing more tooth structure

The main purpose of these dental procedures is not just to correct the appearance of your oral structures but also to promote good health and hygiene. It is best to schedule a regular visit to your dentist at least twice a year.

These are injections that can help improve the shape and fullness of your upper lip to minimise the amount of gum showing whenever you exhibit a happy facial expression.
This is a contouring procedure that removes the extra gum tissue without the need for surgery. This is ideal for patients who show too much gums as they extend too far down covering most of their teeth.

This is a type of cosmetic surgery that corrects your hyperactive upper lips from exposing too much of your gum line.

This is a gummy smile treatment that aims to relax the muscles consisting of the upper jaws and lips to prevent them from exposing too much gums when smiling.

This is an injection treatment that works by blocking the nerve signals sent to your upper lip and jaw muscles to stop their hyperactivity.

While most of these treatments offer temporary results, they are proven safe and effective.

Another way to combat your gummy smile is to visit SKIN CLUB Cosmetic Doctors for the most innovative top-of-the-line Anti Wrinkle Injection treatment. Considering that a smile can affect your appearance, it is best to seek the help of your trusted cosmetic doctor in Melbourne.

Anti Wrinkle Injection or Botulinum Toxin is a neurotoxin that blocks the signals between your nerves and muscles just below your nose. When this happens, your upper lips and jaws will tend to relax and create fewer contractions, hence, preventing them from exposing more of your tooth structures than your gum line.

This gummy smile treatment is an injection treatment that is administered into the muscle area of your upper oral structures. Anti Wrinkle Injection injections aim to correct how your lip muscle smile.

Our team of board-certified and experienced doctors can help determine your aesthetic needs to enhance how your summy smiles appear. At the end of the treatment, you will feel a huge improvement in your smile and how your gums appear when you smile.

This gummy smile treatment takes about twenty to forty minutes to complete. It also offers little to no downtime, hence, you can drive home unaccompanied. You may also return to work immediately or resume your regular activities that do not involve strenuous physical exertions.

Just like any other Anti Wrinkle Injection treatment, this gummy smile treatment offers temporary but long-lasting results. The effects of the treatment can last between six to eighteen months or even more.

The longevity of the results of this treatment depends on the type of Anti Wrinkle Injection used, the severity of your gummy smile condition, the laxity of your skin, the number of Anti Wrinkle Injection injections, and muscle mechanisms.

Depending on the amount and type of Anti Wrinkle Injection used and the severity of your gummy smile, the cost starts at $165.00 per treatment. On average, a patient may need about ten to seventeen units or injections of Anti Wrinkle Injection to treat gummy smiles.

Anti Wrinkle Injection for gummy smile offers virtually no recovery time. However, allow yourself about one to three weeks to resume extreme physical activities. Our team of highly skilled doctors will provide an aftercare guideline to help you get through the next three weeks following your treatment to ensure that we achieve the smile aesthetic that you deserve.
