Doctor Answers 4
Hi, thank you for your question and your photos. I see your concern with your description of tiny teeth and gummy smile. Orthodontics can help with your gummy smile depending on the reasons why you are undergoing braces. I would suggest that you discuss this with your orthodontist so he is aware you have a concern with your gummy smile and small teeth. There are many reasons why you can have small teeth and a gummy smile and you should be evaluated by a periodontist so they smile design for you. Good luck to you!
