Gummy Smile Treatments
What is Gummy Smile Treatments & how does it work?
In a perfect smile, the lip should sit just above the top of the teeth, but some people have problems with a disproportionate gum tissue to teeth ratio, leaving them self-conscious about their smile & the amount of gum shown when smiling (known as gummy smile).
Typical reasons for ‘Gummy Smile’ include:
Thin upper lips
Depending on the patient’s face, a couple of treatments could help to create a more natural and attractive smile shape
Botox injections, also known as Botulinum toxin, can be used to reduce the muscle activity which controls the top lip. This can be very effective. Patients can expect to retain all their normal facial movements, but the top lip will not ride as far above the teeth
Lip enhancement – where the problem is related to a thin top lip, adding some subtle volume with special lip fillers can address this imbalance, adding more substance to the lips and therefore preventing them from sliding so high above the teeth
