Do you show a little too much gum when you smile?
A ‘gummy smile’ is when too much of the gingival (gum) tissue shows when you smile. Sometimes, although the teeth may be the correct length, they can appear short as there is excessive gum tissue growing down the tooth, causing a low and uneven gum-line which results in a 'gummy' smile.
Although this is not harmful and is actually quite common, patients often feel their appearance is not cosmetically pleasing and it can be embarrassing and knock their confidence.
