Treatment Options for Gummy Smiles

Wednesday, Jun. 19th 2024 11:35 AM

Your gummy smile treatment options include gum contouring, jaw surgery, and lip lowering, or your black gums can be permanently treated to be brighter. 

  • Gum contouring: Gum contouring, which may also be called crown lengthening, is a procedure that is used to remove excess tissue and expose more of the natural tooth for a more proportionate, harmonious smile. This can be used alone or in conjunction with lip lowering surgery.
  • Jaw surgery (orthognathic surgery): Jaw surgery may be needed for those with severe structural abnormalities causing or contributing to their gummy smiles. 
  • Lip lowering: Lip lowering is a conservative alternative to more invasive orthognathic surgery and involves adjusting the position of the lip to expose less gum tissue. Botox can also be used to relax the lip muscles and may be utilized in conjunction with and after lip lowering surgery.
