What Is A Gummy 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.

Gummy Smile Treatment Options

In creating symmetry between teeth and framing of teeth, we offer a range of cosmetic and dental 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. We’ve even helped celebrity clients look their best on and off-screen. 

Interface 1


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.

Interface 2

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.

Interface 3

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.


The Benefits Of Laser Gum Recontouring


Gum re-contouring can smooth out uneven gums, extend the appearance of teeth and reshape your smile to produce a more symmetrical gum line.


Through gum contouring, our cosmetic dentists can reposition the gum line to reveal more of your teeth, meaning that your teeth will appear larger.


The results of gum recontouring are permanent, so you never need to worry about having excess gum tissue affecting your smile again.


Laser gum recontouring lifts up your gums and is quite instantaneous, with no scarring.

Laser Gum Lift

There’s various ways to actually lift the gums up. One would be the traditional method where the dentist uses a blade, a scalpel, to cut the gums, and you might bleed quite a bit, and at the same time you get a nice smile. However, there’s going to be some pain and discomfort and healing might take a few days, even up to a week.

At Dental Boutique, we use a specialised laser. The laser can lift your gums up very gently and healing is actually quite instantaneous because there’s no bleeding and there’s no scarring. You might get some slight discomfort towards the end, but it’s definitely nowhere near the traditional method.

Frequently Asked Questions

What’s the best way to fix a gummy smile?

Each person is different, and your treatment will depend on your individual circumstances. Contact us to schedule a consultation to discuss your treatment options.

Are there any side effects?

As with any dental procedure, there can be side effects such as pain, swelling, bleeding, sensitivity or infection. A tailored treatment plan can minimise any major side effects.

How long does the gummy smile treatment result last for?

When gum tissue is removed during procedures like gum recontouring and gum lift, the tissue does not grow back, making the result permanent.
