What is a Gummy Smile?

A gummy smile is when your upper lip elevates too far above your upper teeth – which exposes your gums, and produces a smile that a lot of people find unattractive and tend to hide from.

The most common sauce of a gummy smile is hyperactivity of the muscles, which actually elevates your upper lip. In the past, gummy smiles used to be treated with super-invasive surgeries of the gum tissue and the jawbone. Thankfully, developments in aesthetic medicine have allowed us to be able to treat the appearance of gummy smiles, using the help of Botox.

Botox works to treat the appearance of a gummy smile, with a simple, easy and non-invasive treatment that takes less than 10 minutes to complete.

How Can Botox Help?

Botox works to fix a gummy smile by temporarily relaxing the muscles that are elevating your upper lip – which result in showing your gummy smile. When Botox is injected, the muscles response will be weakened so they aren’t so hyperactive, allowing you to smile without showing your gums. After having Botox injected to treat your gummy smile, you may get a slight bruise at the injection side but you should not have any other serious side effects at all. So you can start feeling more confident, and showing off your smile again.
