Gummy Smile Correction
Hi there, thank you for posting your question and sharing your photos. I agree with your assessment. You are showing more than the normal amount of gum. In your case it appears that the excessive gum shown is due to the way that your jaw bones have formed. We have technology and methods today to alter the way that your jaw is growing and correct the amount of gum you are showing. My recommendation is for you to visit an orthodontist so they can evaluate where your teeth and your gums are and direct the growth in a better way. Good luck!
