A smile is considered ‘gummy’ if there is more than 3mm of gingival tissue on display when you are smiling.

It is nothing to worry about, but many people with a gummy smile find they don’t like smiling, and often feel self-conscious when doing so.

What Causes: Gummy Smile (Excessive Gingival Display)

A gummy smile can be down to your genetic makeup, or it may simply be caused by too much gum tissue. It could also be down to your upper lip muscle being overactive, or partial dental eruption – which means your teeth are covered by an excess of gum tissue. It might be that your teeth are larger than you’d wish them to be.
