Gummy Smile Fix


Are you looking for a smile that shows more teeth and less gums?

A “gummy” smile can sometimes be embarrassing, making your teeth look too short, like a child’s smile. Many people try to hide their gums when they smile and talk and sometimes this may affect social confidence. The beauty of a smile is not only made up of teeth, but also the framing of the teeth including gums and lips.

A smile can appear gummy for many reasons. These include:

• Excess gums

• Upper lip that lifts excessively when smiling

• Incorrect proportion of teeth size and shape

All that our dentists need to do is gently remove the excess gums to reveal more of your teeth. The results are instantly visible and will make an enormous difference to your smile.

Our gummy smile treatments are quick and easy with minimal recovery time.

Treatment Options

In creating symmetry between teeth and framing of teeth, we offer a range of options to improve your gummy smile. Every dental case is different, however with a smile design consultation we can discuss your treatment options and create a personalised treatment plan most suitable for you to achieve your dream smile.


A technique we use to remove excess gum tissue in small sections that will reveal more of your teeth. This can create a more proportionate smile with a better ratio of gums to teeth.

Gum lift with Porcelain Veneers

Gummy smiles are sometimes caused by disproportionate size and shape of teeth. If your gum tissue is healthy and correctly positioned, veneers can be used to correct the size, shape and proportion of your teeth. This combination will help to decrease the amount of gum showing and increase tooth size.

Gum lift with braces or Invisalign

Moving the position of your natural teeth may be enough to change the proportions of your smile with braces or Invisalign.
