A gummy smile = an ugly smile?

Most people think that a gummy smile is unattractive and ugly, and I, myself, have a gummy smile and have been commented on it quite a few times.

I just wanted to know your definition of an ugly/pretty smile, and your opinions on gummy smiles :)

  • Its not ideal.

    If those are your pictures, generally I'd say you have a 'nice' smile' (meaning the ones where lips are open). Its not perfect, but its warm and engaging. Don't avoid opening your mouth, your smile is 'above average'. Share the joy.

  • Well your smile isn't your whole face, y'know. Sure, it's a part of your complexion, and sure people prefer non-gummy smiles but remember that, like art, it's the whole picture that really stands out, not the individual components.

  • Gummy Smiles are only gross smiles if the gums are gross or if there is plaque build up around the edges of your teeth. Yours are not gross. You have a pretty smile.

  • Sometimes. Just like sometimes non-gummy smiles are ugly.
