Gummy Smile Fix

A gummy smile can often make people feel embarrassed and we find that they are always trying to hide their gums but trying not to smile or covering their mouth when they do.

Reasons for a gummy smile

Excess gums 
Upper lip that lifts excessively when smiling
Incorrect proportion of teeth size and shape

There are a few things that can be done to give you the smile you’ve always wanted


This option is best if you have excess gums. What we do is remove small portions of the excess gum to reveal more of your teeth.

Gum Lift with porcelain veneers

This option is best if you have disproportionate teeth size and/or shape. Veneers can be used to correct the size, shape and proportion of your teeth and will help to decrease the amount of gum showing.

Gum Lift with braces or Invisalign

This is a great option if your natural teeth are enough to change the proportions of your gums. More information on braces and Invisalign can be found here
