What is a Gummy Smile?

In the perfect smile, the upper lip sits just above the top of the teeth. A "gummy smile," however, exposes a larger than average amount of gum tissue when smiling and has a noticeably disproportionate gum-to-tooth ratio.

A Word from Gum Specialist Dr. Farnoosh

"Gummy smile correction is extremely popular at my Beverly Hills dental practice. When you watch television, read a magazine, or flip through your old photo albums, it becomes obvious that there is a certain beauty to all smiles, because smiles show our inner happiness and enjoyment. But individuals with a gummy smile are often embarrassed and self-conscious about their appearance. In 1998, I developed a simple, convenient procedure to lower the upper lip so that it reveals less of your gum tissue when you smile. After lip lowering surgery, you'll enjoy a more attractive smile and have the confidence to show it off."
