Known in medical terms as exaggerated gums, a gummy smile occurs when you smile and see too much gum tissue over your upper teeth. You may find that the causes are all related to your teeth, lips, jaw, or gums, but these happen to be the key factors that determine the aesthetics of your smile.
Anti-wrinkle injections can help if your upper lip is overactive. It acts as a muscle relaxant weakening the muscle response and prevents it from becoming overactive. Anti-wrinkle injections into the upper lip limits the range of motion and the amount of gums visible when you smile. This is not a permanent gummy smile solution and will wear off in 3-6 months.
This minimally invasive procedure shows results within 5-7 days after the procedure. Discover a new, raised smile that makes your gum less visible and allows you to smile with confidence and freedom.
