A gummy smile is a facial condition that affects the appearance of the smile and is characterized by excessive exposure of the gums when smiling. In addition to this manifestation, this facial alteration is usually associated with a vertical excess of the upper jaw, which can give rise to a disproportionately elongated and unharmonious facial appearance.
Fortunately, there are treatment options to address gummy smiles and restore the confidence of sufferers. These procedures focus on preventing the levator labii superior muscles from showing an excessive and unaesthetic amount of gums when smiling. A gummy smile is usually defined as when more than 4 mm of gum is exposed when smiling, which can affect a person's self-esteem and perception of beauty.
