Why do some people have Gummy smiles?

The following causes have been established.

  • Developmental or genetic influences.
  • If the upper jaw bone is much larger than the lower jaw bone, the upper lip might appear stretched, causing an excessive display of gum tissues when a person speaks or smiles.
  • When the upper lip muscles are over-active they pull the lip upwards, creating the appearance of a gummy smile.
  • The formation of excess bone over the outer surfaces of the teeth, creating the appearance of a bulge of gum tissue above the teeth.
  • When there is incomplete recession of gum tissue as the adult teeth erupt into the mouth, the teeth will look disproportionately small in relation to other anatomic facial features.
  • Previous orthodontic treatment.
  • Certain medications can cause excessive gum tissue proliferation, a side effect known as gingival hyperplasia.
  • Gummy smile correction treatments can be classified into two surgical procedures: gingivectomy and lengthening of the crown. In the cases of mild gummy smiles gingivectomy is preferred, whereby the gums are reduced. Radio surgery may be opted for this method. Its absolutely painless and leaves no scar marks. Healing time is also very minimal.
  • Crown lengthening procedure is a much extensive surgical procedure, but it is also painless. The gum tissues are relocated and contoured near the tooth hence reducing the display of gums while smiling. Healing takes around 10 days time. It may be later on followed by treatment of crowns or veneers in order to achieve a perfect smile.
