Common causes of Gummy Smile

Thanks to modern cosmetic dentistry, Sydneysiders have access to simple solutions to dentally-related gummy smile.

Dentally-related causes of gummy smile include:

  • Worn down teeth causing upper teeth to move downwards. The gums therefore move down with the teeth, making them look short or squarish in shape or short.
  • Teeth have erupted more than they should have bringing the gums down with them.
  • Overgrown gums due to poor oral hygiene or mouth breathing.

Other causes

If teeth are normal in shape and size, gummy smile may be a result of facial or lip-related problems, including a short upper lip, long upper jawbone or excessively mobile upper lip. If this is the case, you may need to consider orthognathic surgery or botox in the upper lip.
