Gum Lift for Gummy Smile

What is a gummy smile and how is it surgically repaired?

The presence of excess gum tissue or a high lip line results in the appearance of short teeth and a gummy smile which can be surgically repaired by

  • Gum contouring
    • Gingivectomy – to remove excess gum tissue that has grown on and around the teeth
    • Crown lengthening surgery – to reveal more of the natural teeth
  • Hypermobile Lip Surgery – for high lip line
