Teeth look long after gum receding

Q. My top four front teeth have been on a denture for over 20 years. During that time my gums have receded quite a lot. Both teeth on either side of the four now look silly as the teeth themselves look very long as the gums have receded so much. I have quite a wide smile/laugh but over the years I have tried to limit this as I am very aware of how noticeable the ‘long’ teeth are. Have you any ideas??

A. You probably need a new denture with the teeth correctly placed and the correct amount of gum
