Smile is an expression which can help people feel better. Smile can express a sense of affection, joy, happiness, kindness, and confidence. Dentistry is one such profession which deals with smile esthetics. Smile esthetics is a type of subjective evaluation.

Excessive exposure of gums while smiling is referred to as gummy smile.
