When you smile do you see short teeth and more gums than teeth?

If so, chances are your gums are covering your teeth.  This is called “excessive gingival display” and is usually caused by the gum and supporting structures failing to recede after the tooth grows into your jaw.

This phenomenon, also known as “altered passive eruption”, is easy and quick to fix.  If you see too much gum or short teeth ask Dr. Lauren Anderson if you may be a candidate for esthetic crown lengthening treatment.
