Why treat gummy smile?
Treating a gummy smile is important for several reasons. First, a gummy smile can cause self-consciousness and impact a person’s confidence. People who feel uncomfortable or embarrassed about their smile may avoid social situations or feel hesitant to show their teeth when they smile, which can impact their quality of life.
In addition to the emotional impact, a gummy smile can also affect a person’s oral health. Excess gum tissue can make it more difficult to properly clean and maintain the teeth, increasing the risk of dental problems such as gum disease, tooth decay, and bad breath.
