Excess Gingival Display

Also known as a gummy smile, this orthodontic problem gives the appearance of excessive exposed gums on the upper arch.

Several treatment options for this problem are available.

In severe cases, surgery may be necessary to remove a section of the upper jaw, shifting the jaw upward vertically and reducing the amount of upper gum tissue that is exposed.
