is it halal to correct the tall gums by a surgery or treatments ?

A gummy smile, known as excessive gingival display in doctor speak, is when you smile and too much gum tissue shows above the top teeth.
In most cases, subjects rated smiles as attractive when two millimeters or less of gum tissue was exposed. At around three millimeters or more, the smile was thought to be gummy. Interestingly, the condition is more common in women than men. Some experts predict that about 14% of women and 7% of men have excessive gingival display.

There are a number of causes of a gummy smile, however, the most common ones are:

    • Teeth that appear short because they erupted improperly and remain partially covered by gum tissue
    • Teeth that are small in comparison to the gums due to genetics or wear
    • An upper lip that is too short
    • A hyperactive upper lip that is normal in length when the face is resting but lifts too high when smiling exposing a lot of gum tissue
    • Gums that are long or enlarged, known as gingival hypertrophy
    • An overgrowth of the upper jaw, called vertical maxillary excess, that makes gums bulge out
