Do You Show Excessive
Gums When You Smile?
Gummy smiles is often the term used to describe a person who shows a large portion of their gums as they smile. Although gummy smiles are a normal variation of the human anatomy, they can affect peoples confidence and embarrass them.
It is a fantastic dental Surgery an I would highly recommend any of my family a friends to go there.
The reception staff are all very helpful, polite, friendly and professional. The staffs and my Dr they both created a friendly welcoming an happy environment for me to walk into an it made sure that I was confident in having my treatment.
How Do You Treat a Gummy Smile?
We offer a few treatments that can be used to treat gummy smiles. Not all of them will be suitable for each patient and we will need to see you first for your free consultation to discuss your case.
- Laser Reshaping – a laser is used to carefully cut away any excess gum
- Orthodontics – This is a much more effective treatment in younger patients, as the brace controls/manages the patients bone development
- Anti-Ageing Injections – Injection on the upper lip can relax the muscles, which causes the upper lip to drop down and hide the gummy smile
I have recently finished my treatment and I couldn’t have asked for more. I have the confidence to smile again and all within 6 months…..pretty amazing! The team at the practice are professional and friendly and really put you at ease. I had no problems booking appointments around my working day which was an extra bonus. I would 100% recommend this dental practice!
Before & After
This patient was unhappy with the alignment of her teeth and her gummy smile. We used orthodontic treatment to align the teeth and reduce the gummy smile.

Very professional dental service, I’ve needed a lot of treatment over the past 6 or 7 months but have to say all the staff are extremely pleasant and welcoming, jas is a top dentist always explaining my options and always extremely professional in his work. Highly recommended
Fantastic dentist , managed to fit me in same day and extract wisdom tooth that previous dentist had made a real mess of . So happy and pain free at last .
I have been with Accent dental surgery for the last 5 years and have enjoyed excellent service.
Dental surgeons are competent who provide dental implant service along with other like dental bridges. Staff are very polite and respectful. I will recommend their services to anyone based on my experience.
When I first came to Ascent dental I was originally looking to take a completely different Route with my teeth, I met a great Dentist named Gurpritt who was so exceptionally professional. She guided me in choosing the correct treatment, and helping me figure out a plan that would suit me…
Very impressed with Gursh and his team with regard to orthodontic treatment. Very attentive, efficient and friendly service, making the whole process really quick and easy. Appointments for wire changes are so fast, meaning I’m in and out in minutes. Can’t recommend them highly enough.
Absolutely delighted with my treatment & results. I am so pleased that I did my research and chose to have my treatment with Girsh at Ascent in Dorridge. My case was not straightforward and the solution he designed was thoughtful and practical. I am genuinely thrilled with the results and would recommend to anyone.
I had a lingual brace fitted to my top teeth with Ascent Dental last year and I am very pleased with the results. I had some overcrowding and crookedness which has now been resolved and I feel much more confident with my smile! I would definitely recommend this type of brace if you are wishing to straighten your teeth invisibly, no one even noticed that I had a brace unless I pointed it out. The staff were very helpful and supportive during my treatment. I am now considering having my bottom teeth done with the same type of brace.
I have just finished treatment at Ascent Dental Care and can only thank the team for their care and professionalism. I am a very nervous patient so opted for sedation and was glad I did as I now have a less traumatic memory of having a deep clean and treatment for 2 crowns. Thank you to the team and would recommend this surgery to anyone who is nervous and putting off having treatment. Lorraine
I have just finished my treatment with Ascent Dental after 6 months of having Lingual braces to adjust crowding in my upper teeth. I have been very impressed with the service given to me, and would thoroughly recommend the practice to anyone looking to improve their smile. Dr Gursh Bajwa made the treatment comfortable, yet effective, and I am very happy with the results. I would like to thank all the staff at Ascent Dental for the high level of care and service they have given me.
As someone with an extreme fear of everything dental, I can’t recommend Ascent enough. All of the staff are the most knowledgeable, loveliest, most patient people. The service is amazing and the fees are really reasonable. After 20 years of dentist hopping and emergency treatment, I finally feel I am on the road to overcoming my fears. Actually excited for the next part of my dental plan!
Started going to ascent dental care last March 2021 with the fear of having any dental work, I have always been so self conscious of my teeth from young but just lost confidence in any dentist that saw me.
Safe to say I met Jas who has filled me with confidence and put me at ease, knowing what I wanted to achieve set me up with the perfect plan, I quit smoking to achieve healthier teeth with the advice from jas and I am now towards the end of the treatment, and am so pleased with the end results!! the staff are so welcoming and the professionalism and work within is by far worth any price on the treatment you receive!
Thanks team! Amazing work!!
This has been a very positive experience. I didn’t have an appreciation of what can be done with orthodontics these days so the result has been very impressive . I was very careful in choosing who to go to and I am very happy my research paid off. Gursh is very highly skilled, friendly and explains things clearly , as are the rest of the team there. Highly recommended.
