What is a Gummy Smile?

A gummy smile, medically known as excessive gingival display, is a condition where an excessive amount of gum tissue is visible above the upper teeth when smiling. This can make teeth appear shorter and affect the overall aesthetics of the smile. While a gummy smile is usually a cosmetic concern, it can impact self-esteem and confidence.

What Causes a Gummy Smile?

Several factors contribute to the development of a gummy smile, including:
  • Genetics: Your genetic makeup can influence the amount of gum tissue you have.
  • Overactive Upper Lip Muscles: Hyperactivity of the muscles controlling the upper lip can cause excessive gum exposure when smiling.
  • Teeth Development: Short or excessively worn teeth can lead to a disproportionate gum-to-tooth ratio.
  • Jaw Development: An improperly developed upper jaw can result in a gummy smile.

Impact of a Gummy Smile

A gummy smile not only affects your appearance but can also impact your overall well-being. It can lead to:
  • Reduced Self-Esteem: A visible gummy smile can make individuals feel self-conscious and less confident.
  • Social Anxiety: Concerns about a gummy smile can affect social interactions and lead to anxiety.
  • Emotional Distress: The presence of a gummy smile can lead to stress and depression for some individuals.

How We Diagnose a Gummy Smile

At Lindsay Keith, MD PLLC MedSpa, we offer a comprehensive consultation to diagnose the causes and severity of your gummy smile. Our expert team will assess your dental and facial structure, review your medical history, and discuss your aesthetic goals to create a customized treatment plan tailored to your unique needs.

Services Treatment Options

We offer a range of advanced treatments designed to correct a gummy smile and enhance your natural beauty. Our treatment options include:
  • Neurotoxins: Injections of Botox and similar neurotoxins can relax the muscles controlling the upper lip, reducing excessive gum exposure when smiling.
  • Dermal Fillers: Hyaluronic acid-based fillers can add volume to the upper lip, helping to balance the gum-to-tooth ratio and reduce the appearance of a gummy smile.

Product Treatment Options

Our medspa carries two premier skincare product lines, Hydrinity and HydroPeptide, known for their efficacy in enhancing overall skin health. While these products may not directly address a gummy smile, they can be part of a comprehensive skincare routine to enhance your facial aesthetics:
  • HydroPeptide Power Lift Moisturizer: This rich moisturizer hydrates and firms the skin, enhancing overall facial appearance.
  • Hydrinity Anti-Aging Serum: A potent serum that targets fine lines and boosts collagen production, promoting a youthful, radiant complexion.

Care and Maintenance Post-Treatment

Maintaining a confident, beautiful smile requires a consistent skincare routine and healthy lifestyle choices. Our experts will provide you with personalized recommendations to keep your smile looking its best. Tips include:
  • Gentle Cleansing: Use a mild, hydrating cleanser twice daily to maintain skin health around the mouth area.
  • Moisturizing: Apply a rich, non-comedogenic moisturizer immediately after cleansing to lock in moisture and keep your skin hydrated.
  • Sun Protection: Apply sunscreen daily to protect your skin from harmful UV rays and prevent further aging.
  • Regular Dental Care: Maintain good oral hygiene with regular brushing, flossing, and dental check-ups to support your smile.
  • Healthy Diet: Opt for a balanced diet rich in fruits, vegetables, and whole grains to support overall skin and dental health.
  • Regular Follow-Ups: Schedule regular appointments with our team to monitor your progress and adjust your treatment plan as needed.
