Causes of Gummy Smiles

Gummy smiles are caused by an assortment of various issues with both your teeth and gums:

  • Size and shape of teeth
  • Amount of gum tissue displayed
  • Length of upper lip
  • Position of the upper jaw in relationship to the skull

Your gum tissue is like a frame that provides form and shape to the top of your tooth. If too much gum shows when you smile, we face the dreaded “gummy smile.” This may have been a condition you’ve always had, or it may be one that develops with age, also known as becoming ‘long in the tooth.’ In a third scenario, you might even be experiencing loss of gum tissue due to dental disease.
