Gummy Smile

A condition also known as a high lip line. An excessive amount of gum tissue is seen when a person speaks or smiles big. A gummy smile can be caused by excess in the vertical growth of the upper jaw, a short upper lip or a forward positioning of the front teeth. A gummy smile can be corrected. The specific treatment will depend on the cause.
