A gummy smile is a common variation among the population especially in females and has a prevalence of 10.5%-29%
A perfect smile has no definition. It should look good with lips swept up and eyes lit that reflect pure joy and positivity. However, some people may not look that good when smiling because of their gummy smile, clinically termed as an “excessive gingival display”.  

Do you feel your smile shows more gum than it should? Aren’t you satisfied with the aesthetics of your gummy smile? You can get rid of it with our treatment.  At Clinic Next Face in Bengaluru, our doctor sees your gummy smile and understands your aesthetic desires to fix the issues as required and give you a beautiful smile.

Understanding a Gummy Smile

A gummy smile is a condition that displays excess gums, i.e., gingival when smiling. Most of your upper teeth should show when you smile and the upper lip should cover the rest. Your smile may not look visually pleasing when gum shows over 2 to 3 mm, even though there is as such no criteria for how much gum display is considered to be gummy. With our advanced treatment, you can enhance your smile.

The Importance of Smile Aesthetics

Your smile makes a first impression on the people you meet for the first time. Thus, it should be attractive to impress people and reflect your confidence and personality. A smile affects your emotional and psychological health. So, an aesthetically pleasing smile is crucial to feel confident. 

When you feel conscious when smiling, you will come across as a timid person who is insecure about looks. If you aren’t happy with your gummy smile, you should get it fixed with our treatment.

 

Overview of Treatment Options

When it comes to fixing your gummy smile, you can opt for both surgical and non-surgical treatment options. Here are the different types of treatments you can do to enhance your gummy smile:

 

Jaw or Orthognathic Surgery

In jaw or orthognathic surgery, the surgeon  repositions the upper jaw to restore the perfect facial profile. You should opt for this treatment when the skeletal disfigurement is in excess.

 

Gummy Smile Braces or Orthodontic Treatment

Orthodontic treatment can fix your upper teeth that are erupted forward or in excess. This treatment pulls your teeth behind and replaces your lips in the correct position, traps your gum tissues, and enhances your smile.

 

Lip Lowering or Lengthening

Lip lowering is a process that changes your lips’ position with teeth. This process is performed when the teeth are of normal length, and thus, nothing is done with the teeth. The lip is lowered by removing a segment of connective tissue for the lip interior. Thus, the upper lip does get much upward when you smile. Plus, the upper lips look fuller, which enhances the overall appearance. This safe procedure delivers long-term results.

 

Crown Lengthening or Gum Contouring

Crown lengthening involves reshaping or sculpting the gum tissues to lengthen and enhance the teeth. The bone surrounding your teeth also requires reshaping sometimes to have a normal smile in proportion to your face and teeth. Gum contouring also removes the gum pockets and prevents repeated infections. This treatment is safe and delivers long-term results.

Part 1: Identifying a Gummy Smile

When it comes to identifying a gummy smile, you should know what causes it.

What Causes a Gummy Smile?

Here are the key causes of a gummy smile:

Poor Oral Hygiene

Proper oral care is crucial to protect your mouth and prevent plaque buildup on teeth under gums that get larger and inflamed. Braces tend to cause gummy smiles because of poor dental hygiene as people wearing them avoid brushing their teeth and flossing due to their obstructions.

As bacteria accumulate inside and surrounding the gums, it causes inflammation and then a gummy smile.

Genetics 

You may have a gummy smile just because of genetics, which appears in the form of short upper lips, mini teeth, and large jaw combinations. Hereditary Gingival Fibromatosis (HGF), is a slow keratinized gingiva enlargement that tends to create speaking issues and rarely gummy smiles. 

Body anatomy changes may cause gummy smiles, like hormonal changes related to puberty and pregnancy. Leukemia, a blood disorder, may also cause and trigger enlarged gingival.

Tooth Eruption

Tooth eruption is a slow procedure of teeth getting pushed via the gums and becoming visible inside the mouth. It occurs when someone is approximately 6 years old for permanent molars. 

Some teeth don’t erupt correctly sometimes and create a condition called Altered Passive Eruption (APE), which makes a person’s smile look gummy. The gums partially cover some teeth as they don’t get fully inside the mouth, which isn’t a health issue but an aesthetic concern.

Medication Side Effects

Certain prescription drugs and medications have side effects, like enlarged gums. Such drugs are phenytoin for epilepsy, immunosuppressants (like Cyclosporin A) used for preventing tissue rejection, and heart disease medicines, such as Diltiazem, Verapamil, and Nifedipine.

The Role of Genetics in Oral Health

Your genes can affect the risks of getting certain oral health concerns. Some genes may weaken enamel tenacity, and capabilities of acid neutralization in your mouth. Immune response and inflammation-related genes may affect the occurrence of periodontal disease.

  Certain genetic markers can increase the risks of oral cancer. Genetics, oral hygiene, a healthy lifestyle, and frequent dental checkups are crucial to living a healthy life. A balanced diet, stress management, and no smoking minimize the effects of genetic risks on dental health.
