Gummy Smile

We’ve heard unkind people use the words Horse Face. It’s hurtful and disrespectful. We all have flaws that we are very well aware of and if you are reminded every time you look in the mirror, it’s time we address the situation.

Are you embarrassed by your gummy smile?

Having too many teeth or too much gum makes some people more aware of their imperfect smile. Do we cover our mouths to laugh or smile, do we avoid smiling and laughing because of our teeth?

Some gummy smiles are caused by heredity and some are caused by disease of the gums. If you notice that your teeth are moving and your gums have taken over, it’s time to find out what’s happening.

Your mouth is trying to tell you that there’s something wrong. It’s true when they say that your mouth is the window to your healthy body. If you are noticing bad breath and bleeding around your gums, it’s time you make an appointment to get to the bottom of things.

Gummy Smile Los Angeles

There is a solution waiting for you at Wilshire Smile Studio. We need to take x-rays and get a proper diagnosis to deal with your particular situation.

There are medical diseases that cause your gums to grow or recede. Diabetes and other blood conditions deprive your gums of getting proper healthy nutrients and will cause a very unhealthy gummy look.

You also have situations where your malocclusion will make your teeth protrude and alter your profile. Periodontal disease (gum disease) will cause your teeth to move because they lack the support from the bone in your jaw.

Your drug use, whether legal or not, will also create a problem with gums and teeth as well. There are so many other environmental factors that alter our lives and habits that cause dental and physical conditions.

If you already have your causes pinpointed and are ready to make changes in your lifestyle, come in and we will be able to discuss your game plan to get you into good oral health and begin to help you enjoy looking into your mirror every day.

Our team uses the latest technology like lasers to contour any overextension of your gums. Often, a gummy smile is a result of mal-aligned teeth and that is also a solvable problem. We also offer Invisalign to move those teeth slowly and at your own pace.

Let us talk about it at your next check-up.

If you have any questions or need to make your appointment, please feel free to contact our office by telephone (323) 336-8478 or email us at: smiles@dentistlosangeles.com
