Gummy smile

A gummy smile is when there is a disproportionate amount of gum tissue showing compared with actual tooth structure when a patient smiles. A smile is generally perceived as “gummy” when 4mm of gum tissue shows whilst a person is fully smiling.

If your smile looks gummy to you, it is important to visiting ONE STOP DENTAL CARE for a consultation with our dental team to determine what the cause is. Our dental team will recommend and provide appropriate and personalised treatment procedures for you.
