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 gum contouring treatment in Dubai, then you’re at the right place.
Gum contouring reshapes the gum using laser or scalpels thereby reducing the gums, creating the appearance of elongated teeth and treating a gummy smile.

I was suffering from periodontitis, bleeding gums, bad breath and gum infection problem. I read about Dr Satyapriya Surender and visited Dr. Paul's Clinic. I was treated well and got relieved of all my gum issues. The treatment was completed in six months. I am happy to recommend Dr Satyapriya to all my friends and family as one of the expert doctors - The Specialist Periodontist.
I didn’t know that I had a periodontal problem for many years until it was discovered by the one and only Dr. Sathyapriya Surendar. The extent of the problem was so severe that I had to undergo an invasive procedure known as bone grafting. Even though I had been to several dental clinics in the Philippines and here in Dubai, no one told me or even hinted about this problem. She has been maintaining my teeth with focus on the fundamentals which are my gums and the tissues within them for more than a decade now. Today, I can be confident that I have strong gums. Her expertise, passion, professionalism and very kind demeanour underpins my loyalty, trust and confidence over the past decade which will carry on in the many years to come. I am thankful to be under the care of Dr. Sathyapriya or Dr. Priya as she was popularly known here in Dubai.
My first consultation with Dr. Priya was way back in 2007. I was looking out for a good dentist due to gum problems. I found her through a search on the internet. From the first visit itself, she proved herself to be very skilled, efficient, and thorough in her knowledge and above all in her pleasant demeanor. My mother who consulted her later also had the same feedback about how good she felt doing her dental treatment with Dr. Priya. My gum problems have reduced and my teeth are in considerable good shape due to the timely intervention and treatment and the regular follow-ups. Thank you and keep up the good work.
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.
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.
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.
