A gummy smile or gum smile is when the gums of the upper teeth are visible during laughter. This happens because the muscle at the top of the lips contracts too much when laughing, causing the upper lip to go up too much. In some cases, the upper lip also curls a little inward during laughter, making the lip itself less visible. Treatment of the gummy smile is done with wrinkle relaxants. The tension of the muscle at the top of the lip becomes less, creating a more relaxed smile. During a no-obligation consultation, ask for personalized advice for the treatment of the gummy smile.
