Reasons why you may show too much gum when you smile?

  • Short teeth? NO! Too much gum tissue.
  • When teeth erupt through gums they keep erupting until the upper and lower teeth touch. After they touch the gum tissue continues to migrate to the neck of the tooth. When this doesn't happen fully it results in too much gum tissue and the appearance of short teeth.
  • Hyper-mobile upper lip is when your lip lifts more than average. There is a procedure to reduce this hyper-mobile lip to normal mobility.
  • Overgrown gum tissue due to orthodontics, prosthodontics, or medications.
