Gummy Smile BOTOX® in Dallas, Texas

Love Your Smile

Are you self-conscious of your gummy smile? Your gums shouldn’t prevent you from showing the world your smile. It is more common than you may think. Approximately 10% of young adults consider their smile to be on the gummy side. There are all sorts of reasons why it occurs, but the good news is that you don’t need to live with it.

What Causes a Gummy Smile?

Here are some common causes of a gummy smile:

  • Long or enlarged gum tissue, known as gingival hypertrophy, can result in a gummy smile.
  • Excessive growth of the upper jaw, known as vertical maxillary excess, can expose more gum tissue.
  • A short or hyperactive upper lip can create an appearance of gums that is larger than usual.
  • The size and shape of the teeth can result in a gummy smile. More gum tissue will be exposed if teeth appear to be small or hidden.

How Does BOTOX® Work For a Gummy Smile?

A gummy smile can easily and effectively be treated with BOTOX®. The best part of this treatment is that it is not invasive and it is a quick procedure!

BOTOX® has botulinum toxin type A, and when injected, it can relax the muscles in the upper lip and limit the rise of the upper lip when smiling, so the gums will remain covered.

Two or more units of BOTOX® are injected in the area between the nose and upper lip to reduce the appearance of any “gummy” smile, creating a more appealing and natural smile.
