What Is A Gummy Smile?

A gummy smile is when a significant amount of gum shows above the top teeth during smiling. This can be due to various factors, including the way the upper lip moves or the size and shape of the gums and teeth. It’s a common aesthetic concern for many seeking a more balanced smile.

What Can Cause Gummy Smile?

Gummy smile is a condition in which your upper gums are visible during smiling. It can happen because of several reasons. You might be born with a narrow maxilla (upper jawbone) or the muscles that raise your lip during smiling action might be very active.

Here are some other common causes:

• Enamel & gum problems

As a general rule, the more enamel you have & the less gum you have, the less likely it is that you’ll have a gummy smile. For example, a person who has shorter teeth & more gum will appear to show more of their gums when smiling than someone with longer teeth & less gum. A number of factors can affect enamel levels, including tooth grinding & acid reflux. Gum problems can include overgrown or infected gums caused by smoking or plaque buildup from not brushing properly.

• Genetics

Many times, individuals inherit their smile from their parents. The shape of your upper jawbone may also play a role in how much gum shows when you smile.

• Jaw misalignment

If your upper jaw is misaligned with your lower jaw, or if your jaw protrudes forward at an angle


The symptoms of gummy smile can be very subtle. It will show up as a small gap between your gum & your teeth when you smile. This is not a serious condition, but you should be aware of how it affects your appearance before you go out in public.

The following are some of the symptoms of gummy smile:

• The gap between the gum & teeth may vary in size based on how much you are smiling. When you smile wide, the gap will become more noticeable because it becomes larger than usual.
• Your smile may look less attractive because of this gap between the gum & teeth. This can make them look crooked or uneven, especially if there is a large amount of space between them when you smile wide open.

I have been a returning customer to Artistry Clinic for a number of years. My first treatment was for nose reshaping, I was so happy with the results, I have since returned multiple times and have expanded to receive other filler based treatment. I am always made to feel comfortable and have absolute confidence in the results every time.

This was my first visit. All staff were very polite and pleasant. It makes such a difference when people are pleasant and respectful towards you. They were all very helpful, though they could know the immediate area around the clinic better for directions. Dr Shah herself was lovely. I look forward to having treatment.

I've been to see Jen at the Renown House/Bury Street clinic twice now. Both times she's been patient, sympathetic and encouraging and she really knows her stuff when it comes to the various treatments and options available for each skin condition. She's always happy to talk through any concerns or worries you have with either the treatment or your skin, and the clinic is always clean and well presented. I've seen improvement in my skin already and I'm looking forward to going back for another visit in the future!

I have been seeing Dr Sarah Shah for almost 4 years now, she has provided me with a multitude of treatments over the years, and I have always been very pleased with the results. I would highly recommend her services which is why I have been such a longstanding customer. I am a real perfectionist, so its hard to find someone that shares my vision and that was just what I found in Dr Shah! I am certain you will not be disappointed with whatever treatment you seek to have with Dr Shah-she will certainly put you at ease and give you a lot of time to ensure you are happy with the results!

I discovered Sarah in 2013 and have never looked back. Her aesthetics are brilliant (Botox and recently the 8 point lift face lift .. both of which left me feeling rejuvenated, lifted but 'natural' .. a perfect balance) Likewise the aftercare (follow-up appointment) is amazing ... you are given as much attention as the initial consultation and Sarah's job is not done until she knows you are happy with the results! Thank you Sarah .. thank you team

I always see great results. And never any discomfort from injections as Sarah always ensures plenty of time for the anaesthetic cream to take effect. You never feel rushed & Sarah & the clinic staff are welcoming & knowledgeable. The clinic itself is 3 mins walk from Aldgate tube. I thoroughly recommend a visit.

I have been to see Sarah 3 times this year for fillers. I have on each occasion had an excellent experience. I have always been seen on time, I didn't feel rushed and plenty of time and consideration was taken with my treatment. She was able to give thorough explanation of what she was doing and why and how I could get the most optimal results from my treatment going forward. There was no pressure or hard sell or making me feel like I needed anything!! (except that my experience was so good that I can't wait to go back!). I have been to a few places in London for similar treatment, all reputable. But I felt most confident in Sarah Shah's clinic.
