Fort Worth Gummy Smile Treatment
Treatment for a more even, appealing smile.
What Is A Gummy Smile?
The medical term for a gummy smile is “excessive gingival display.” It’s simple to understand. A gummy smile happens when too much of your gum is revealed when you smile. This imbalance between your gums and your teeth can make your smile look strange and may make you feel self-conscious about your appearance.

Treatment Options For Gummy Smiles
If you have a gummy smile, you may be wondering what your treatment options are. There are a few different options that Dr. Schmidgall may recommend at Country Day Dental.
- Gingivectomy – In a gingivectomy, Dr. Schmidgall will surgically remove some of your gum tissue from around your teeth. This helps reduce the overall size of your gums, and it also reveals more of your natural tooth structure. This helps improve the overall balance and appearance of your smile
- Cosmetic dentistry – Cosmetic dentistry may be recommended alongside a gingivectomy, Botox injections, or just on its own. Gummy smiles are often the most noticeable if you also have small teeth. With cosmetic dentistry treatments like veneers, dental bonding, and dental crowns, Dr. Schmidgall can build up your teeth and enlarge them, creating a more balanced appearance when you smile.
The Benefits Of Treating Your Gummy Smile
It’s important to note that, medically speaking, a gummy smile is usually harmless. This is purely a cosmetic issue, and a gummy smile won’t affect your oral health, especially if you eat a healthy diet, brush regularly, and see the dentist for checkups.
But still, if you have a gummy smile, you may feel embarrassed and self-conscious about showing your teeth and gums when you smile, laugh, speak, or even eat. And that’s exactly what gummy smile treatment is meant to help with.
After your treatment from Dr. Schmidgall, your smile will look even, balanced, and completely natural. You won’t have to worry about feeling self-conscious about your teeth or your gums, and you can feel great whenever you smile, laugh, speak, and eat around others.
