A gummy smile is when your smile shows too much gum tissue above the top teeth. It may result from small teeth, late eruption, gum disease, or gapped or crowded teeth. While gummy smiles are not typically a cause for concern, they can be a source of discomfort and low self-esteem for kids, teens, and adults. Luckily, there is a solution! We’ll evaluate your smile to determine if Invisalign treatment can work for you!
Gums that appear long, swollen or inflammed may be the result of gum disease. Symptoms may include red or tender gums and bleeding when brushing or flossing. Gums act as a support for the teeth, and so keeping them healthy is a vital part of good oral hygiene.
Invisalign has proven to be effective in eliminating the look of a gummy smile, especially in younger patients. While the effectiveness of the treatment is determined on a case-by-case basis, we are confident in our ability to help you find a solution.

The treatment for a gummy smile depends on the cause or the condition. Sometimes orthodontic treatment is required, other times you simply require gum re-contouring by your dentist. In some cases, surgery may be necessary to reduce the appearance of a gummy smile.
The cause of a gummy smile can be having too much gum tissue. Alternatively, a gummy smile may be related to the position of your upper jaw or the result of small teeth or a short upper lip.
