There has been an increasing demand among patients in terms of esthetic smile
correction. Our lips help to provide a “Smile Frame”. A “Gummy Smile” refers to
the excessive display of your gums while smiling. Usually when we smile, only
the tips (3 mm) of the upper teeth should be visible.
Gummy smile can be corrected by adjusting the gums to display more volume
of teeth. Dental Lasers are used for repositioning the gums under Local
anesthesia by a procedure called “Gingivoplasty”. This technique involves
altering the gums to a higher level thereby reducing the amount of gums
displayed during a smile.
