Gummy Smile

Gummy Smile: Gummy smile is a umbrella term covering different forms and causes of

excessive showing of gums when smiling.

Different treatment options and combinations from jaw surgery, lip surgery, gum surgery, dental braces, myofunctional lip training and botox may be prescribed depending on the patient’s concern, severity, causes and contributing factors.

The use of Micro-implants (temporary anchorage devices/TADs) has revolutionized orthodontics.

Orthodontists are now able to intrude teeth more than what was possible with conventional orthodontics to camouflage treatment in moderate to severe conditions.

TADs have been proven to be a less invasive way to improve the smile aesthetics of borderline surgical cases

while minimizing the costs and risks associated with orthognathic surgery.
