A gummy smile can affect your confidence when smiling. If you have a gummy smile, you will notice when you have an open smile, an excessive appearance of the gums as the upper lip is lifted. This can make your upper lip look flat or thin or your teeth appear smaller than they are.
The excessive gingival display is usually genetic or due to a hyperactive upper lip causing your lip to move higher than normal, exposing too much gum. They can also be caused by when the teeth erupted, they didn’t erupt fully and are their enamel is still covered by gum tissue.
Gummy smiles can be reduced at Bodyvie by injecting the muscles above the lip with anti-wrinkle injections such as wrinkle injections to reduce movement of the upper lip to reveal less of the gums while smiling.
Exposure to excessive gum causing teeth to appear smaller than they are and affecting self-confidence when smiling.
