A ‘Gummy Smile’ is a condition where there is too much gum tissue (gingiva) in relation to the size of the patient’s teeth, and is very obvious when the patient smiles. To correct for this, a periodontist (gum disease specialist) will, in a short procedure lasting an hour, remove a portion of the gum while the patient is under local anaesthetic. This procedure is undertaken using the latest laser technology. When the excess gum has been removed there may be the necessity of applying a crown, or crowns, to complete the new ‘Smile Design’ for the patient.
