Gummy Smile

The appearance of a person’s mouth when smiling in which their teeth appear abnormally small, due to either a high lip line (hypermobilie lip), hyperplasia of the gums—which can occur in response to certain medications—e.g., phenytoin—or smaller than normal teeth due to developmental events, tooth eruption abnormalities, orthodontic treatments and even congenital defects
