Gummy Smile Treatment in North Shore Periodontics
A gummy smile refers to an excessive gingival display during a smile which affects a person’s self-image. Most gummy smiles are aesthetic in nature, but it could also result from underlying gum conditions. These conditions may need to be treated by your periodontist before the gummy smile can be resolved.
