What is a Gummy Smile?
A gummy smile is one where, upon smiling, a larger than normal proportion of the gums shows. This usually begins to bother people when more than 2mm of gum above the upper teeth is on display. People often find themselves covering their mouth when they laugh or smile.
This can be treated effectively with the administration of Botulinum toxin injections. The result is entirely natural looking. Not everyone is a candidate for this treatment, so please book a consultation and we will be happy to discuss your suitability.
Botox® (Botulinum Toxin) injections for correcting a Gummy Smile
There are a range of treatment possibilities for a gummy smile and not everyone is a candidate for treatment using Botox®.
However Botox® injections offer a safe, approved and non-surgical way to correct a gummy smile. Botox® is a temporary solution and its effects are fully reversible. Although its full benefit may not be seen for a couple of weeks after a treatment, the effects of Botox® typically last for about three to four months. Botox® injections are quick and convenient to administer and Bellissima offers some of the most competitive Botox® prices.
