What Is a Gummy Smile?
A gummy smile is basically a gingival display where a large portion of your gums are visible when you smile. It’s not a huge ordeal, but some patients want to lessen the look of their gums. Botox® is an excellent solution for a gummy smile.
What Causes a Gummy Smile?
There is no crazy cause of a gummy smile. Some patients simply have a shorter upper lip that doesn’t cover their entire gum area. Some patients have a lip that moves too much. No matter the cause, we can help alleviate your gummy smile with Botox® treatments.
How Does Botox® Work for A Gummy Smile?
We target the Yonsei Point in your upper lip with Botox®. The neuromodulator relaxes the three muscles that pull your lip too far upward. You get a perfectly balanced smile without showing all your gum area.
Botox® vs. Gum Reduction Surgery
One of our main goals with our cosmetic treatments is to help patients refrain from surgery. We pride ourselves on providing minimally invasive anti-aging treatments. Botox® for a gummy smile is a minimally invasive treatment without any downtime. Traditional gum reduction surgery will reduce your gums, but it is an invasive treatment that needs a longer recovery time. You can come to us on your lunch break and grab Botox® injections.
Benefits of Botox® for Gummy Smile
Our medical experts can help lessen your gummy smile with Botox® treatments. Some of the most significant benefits of Botox® treatments for a gummy smile include the following:
- Confidence – You’ll get boosted confidence with the look of your big, bright smile.
- Excellent Outcome – Our patients are overjoyed at the results of Botox® treatments for their gummy smiles
- Aesthetics – Gummy smile Botox® treatments help boost the look of your overall smile.
- Minimally Invasive – Botox® treatments are precisely injected and won’t require much if any, downtime.
Botox® Duration Expectations
We always say the amount of time between Botox® treatments varies for each patient. Overall, patients should notice Botox® results for their gummy smile at about three to six months. We recommend touch-up treatments to maintain optimal results.
How Long Does Gummy Smile Botox® Take to Work?
Botox® for your gummy smile does not offer immediate results. You should expect to see results in a few days. You’ll notice a decline in the elevation of your upper lip over time. You should notice the full results in about two weeks. We are always here to assess your treatment and ensure it is going the way we planned.
