Hello, good afternoon Puspitasari.
Gummy smile is a condition where someone whose gum is clearly visible when smiling. This condition is caused by: the position of the upper jaw and teeth that are too forward, abnormal tooth growth which causes the teeth to be covered by gum tissue or because the teeth are growing too short, or because the upper lip muscles that pull the lip too high when smiling. that the installation of braces is not the only therapeutic option in the case of gummy smile. The handling of gummy smile is adjusted to the conditions of the cause. For example, in the case of gummy smile caused by the jaw position being too advanced, the possibility of jaw surgery can be considered, besides the installation of braces can also be considered. In the case of gummy smile caused by teeth that grow too short, the possible treatment will be to extend the crown with periodontal crown lengthening or contouring. Therefore, we suggest that you consult with your dentist, especially orthodontist (drg. Sp.Ort) to ensure the cause of the condition of the gummy smile that you experience and the handling that is most likely to be done.
