Make That Gummy Smile Disappear

If you feel that a gummy smile is cute on an infant but not on you, it’s time to consider a smile makeover.

Celebrities like Katie Couric and Miley Cyrus have very noticeable gummy smiles – but they smile large anyway. This distinctive feature is almost like a trademark. Then there are celebs like Nicole Kidman who tend to have a tight-lipped pose… maybe it’s because of her gummy smile, maybe it’s because her publicist told her to look that way.

Nevertheless, whether you’re in front of the camera all the time or not, if you’re tentative about your own smile, you may be wishing for the fix that will give you the smile corrections you desire and have you grinning confidently in every photo and social encounter.

Being self-conscious about smiling can alter your appearance in negative ways – you may grimace or smirk, making you seem like you’re less than enthusiastic about something when really you’re just trying to hide your gums.

If a gummy smile is preventing you from smiling the big, toothy grin that you feel, the Houston cosmetic dentists at SmileTexas can makeover your smile in as little as two visits. Using techniques such as diode laser gum correction, porcelain veneers, and porcelain crowns, the SmileTexas experts will create a vibrant, symmetrical smile makeover that will have you beaming with pride.
