There : There are many questions on the forum regarding correction of a "gummy smile". The question is, do you mean a recontouring of the gingival tissue around the necks of your teeth to make them look a bit longer (bigger) or do you mean your teeth are of the correct size and shape for your face, but when you smile, you see alot of the gum tissue above the teeth?
