4 ways to improve a gummy smile


So you have a gummy smile that you hate? The cause of this can be due to small short teeth, overgrown gums, overactive smile muscles or general jaw structure. Whatever the case – here are 4 solutions that DON’T involve major surgery but WILL improve your gummy smile:

  1. Gum Contouring: takes 1 appointment possibly under local an an anaesthetic.
  2. Muscle relaxant/ Botox – very simple procedure done with your dentist. People forget that Botox was actually developed to treat issues – not just to treat wrinkles.
  3. Orthodontics – as your teeth move, so does your gum line. Reduction of a gummy smile can be incorporated into orthodontic treatment. Consult your dentist!
  4. Crown lengthening in combination with him contouring: this will allow for a more dramatic result to the gum contouring.

For best results several of these treatments can be combined – however rest assured that each treatment – even if performed on its own, will yield results and will improve your smile – even on its own.

At Dental On Park we provide all of the above solutions and can even do so with a payment plan.
