Fixing Your “Gummy” Smile

How much gum is too much gum? It’s a strange question, but if you’ve got what’s known as a “gummy” smile, then you probably already know the answer: Your gums are too much for your smile to handle, it seems, and you can’t remember a time when that wasn’t the case. From a dentist’s point…
