Learning About Gummy Smile
Gummy smile is nothing but an excessive amount of the display of the gum tissue of the gingival tissue while you are smiling. This is not at all a harmful condition and does not cause any ill effects in the oral cavity or the overall health. The main area of concern is the negative affect that it creates on the aesthetics of your smile and the overall appearance of your face. To make it even simpler, it can be rightly said that gummy smile happens when you see that your front teeth are substantially covered by the tissues of the gums.

Causes of Gummy Smile
There are a number of causes that give rise to gummy smile which are as discussed below.

  • There might be an abnormal eruption of your teeth where the newly erupted teeth appear to be much shorter. In some of the cases, they might appear to be of the correct length but are covered up with an excessive amount of tissues of the gums.
  • Another major cause of gummy smile is the incorrect development of the upper jaw bone. The main reason behind this is because the jaw might tend to bulge out a bit more that it should be normally.
  • In some of the cases of gummy smile, it is seen that the possession of the overactive muscles causes the movement of the upper lip. Now, at the time of smiling, these muscles might tend to pull the upper lip much more as compared to what should be happening usually. This particular happening gives the perception of a gummy smile.

At this point of time, a number of questions arise which says that whether the gummy smile is only an aesthetic problem or something more than that as well. In this situation, it is to be known that a smile line is basically an aesthetic zone that displays your teeth while smiling. The other contributing factors that might be playing a vital role in the overall appearance of your smile are as follows.

  • The size and shape of the lips
  • The muscles of the face
  • The size and shape of the teeth
  • The gum tissues

To get the best smile, the display of the gum tissue should be minimal and the smile line should be evenly balanced so that the contours are in consonance with the upper lip.

Correction of Gummy Smile with Lasers
There has been a lot of advancement of the laser technology in the field of dentistry which is why laser smile correction is one of the most preferred technique as compared to the traditional surgical methods. The laser treatment is able to efficiently and effectively remove the excess of the gum tissues resulting in the correction of the smile. The laser treatment process also focusses on the reshaping of the jaw bone which is underlying. The process of laser smile correction involves a concentrated beam of light which is particularly directed towards the excessive amount of gum tissues that are present. The process is an extremely comfortable one with almost zero recovery time but gifts you with your dream smile.
