If your gums look too much when you smile, you might have a smile called “gummy smile”. Even though your tooth size is in normal sizes, if the gum covering the tooth is excessive, it will show the length of your tooth short. This situation results in a low and uneven gum level.
The gummy smile is not a dangerous situation and is much more common than you think. However, the patients often decide for the gummy smile treatment because they harm their self-confidence and feel discomfort.
Thin Upper Lip
If you have a thin upper lip by birth, your gums will appear more when you laugh.
