Gummy Smile

Smile with confidence

A ‘gummy smile’ occurs when excess gum tissue is seen above the upper teeth upon smiling.

For many people this occurs due to an overactive muscle that influences the movement of your upper lip. When you smile this muscle causes the upper lip to rise higher than most people revealing more gum tissue.

Generically termed, ‘anti-wrinkle injections’, that have a relaxing effect on muscles are used to improve a gummy smile. By relaxing the muscle that is lifting the upper lip excessively upon smiling, reduced elevation occurs.

This is a very quick treatment, with little discomfort, that allows you to return to daily activities immediately without visible signs of treatment.
