Gummy Smile

A gummy smile occurs when your smile appears to show too much of the gums and not enough of the teeth. It can occur for a number of reasons. Abnormal tooth eruption can lead to the development of excess gum tissue, or you might have a high lip line, meaning that your upper lip moves higher when you smile compared to others, exposing too much of the gums.


If you’re unsatisfied with the appearance of your gummy smile, a number of possible treatments are available. At Wilshire Smile Studio, we can use lasers to remove excess gum tissue. If your teeth or jaw are out of alignment, the answer may be orthodontics or maxillofacial surgery to restore the correct oral proportions.
