GUMMY SMILE BOTOX

An optimal smile appears balanced with just enough gum and teeth showing

Simple & Effective Botox Treatment

Around 14% of people suffer from a gummy smile

Gummy smile is the term used when someone smiles and the gums above the upper teeth become visible.

After your consultation, Dr Jaskaren will inject a small amount of Botulinum Toxin both sides of the nostril to weaken the upper lip elevator muscles. The effect can normally start to show after a few days however the full result takes up to 2 weeks.
Some people respond to a small amount of treatment, however, others may need higher doses to achieve a similar result. Each person’s treatment is different and some people may need two or even three adjustments to achieve optimum results. Once the desired results are achieved Dr Jaskaren will create a personal treatment plan for you, so she can replicate the results, the next time you need treatment. You will be advised to keep the target muscles active for a few hours immediately after treatment.

What Causes a Gummy Smile?

A gummy smile can be caused from problems with your teeth, your bone structure, your gums, a short upper lip or overactivity of the muscles that create your smile.

It the upper lip elevator muscles, that lift the upper lip up are overactive/hyperactive, they reveal too much gum tissue on smiling. This is one of the most common causes of a gummy smile.

How Does It Work?

After your consultation with Dr Jaskaren she will assess whether the gummy smile can be treated with Botox (in a small number of cases such as gingivectomy oral surgery may be required), if treatable Dr Jaskaren injects a small amount of Botulinum Toxin both sides of the nostril to weaken the upper lip elevator muscles. The effect can normally start to show after a few days however the full result takes up to 2 weeks. If it is your first treatment she will then assess you in a review appointment after 2-3 weeks. Dr Teri will take photos to asses the success of the treatment and make further adjustments if necessary.
