Often patients find that too much gum showing when they grin makes them feel self-conscience.
There are various causes for a gummy smile, some being; thin lips, a small upper lip, or a hyperactive upper lip. Small teeth can also make the gum area look larger.
Injections of Botox can give you back your confidence and you smile..
Botox injected into the upper lip elevators will relax the muscle used to elevate the upper lip, thus preventing the upper lip from rising too high and reducing the amount of gums displayed when smiling.
Botox will help to relax your smile for a more balanced grin.
This Botox treatment for gummy smiles is temporary, lasting up to 3 to 4 months and will need to be repeated as it wears off.
