What Is Gummy Smile Treatment?

Have you ever wondered if you can ever smile without being conscious? Have you wished to smile showing only your beautiful teeth and not your gums? Are you tired of hiding your smile because of your prominent gums and are considering gummy smile treatment in Dubai? We have the right solution to fix your ‘Gummy Smile’. A gummy smile is characterised by the excessive display of gums when smiling. A gummy smile can appear to be unaesthetic in appearance. For a normal smile, only two-thirds to three-thirds of the teeth should be displayed and the lips should cover the gums. When more than two to three millimetres of your gum is seen while you are speaking or smiling, it can be characteristic of a gummy smile. If you are looking for effective and reliable Gummy smile treatment in Dubai or gum contouring treatment in Dubai & Gum disease treatment in Dubai then you’re at the right place.

Patient Stories


  • What are the causes of a gummy smile?

    The reasons for a gummy smile can be short or small teeth, strong muscles of the upper lip, decreased crown length, shorter upper lips and gum overgrowth.

  • How do I know if I need to get a gummy smile correction?

    Do your gums show more when you smile? If you do not like the appearance of gums and teeth and it looks as if your teeth are shorter or smaller due to your gums, then gummy smile correction can help you in giving the smile of your dreams.

  • How should I take care of my teeth after the surgery?

    For the first few days after your surgery, you should eat soft and bland food. You should be careful not to stretch the muscles too much as you might break or loosen the stitches. The evaluation appointment will be scheduled after a week for the doctor to remove your stitches.
