Gummy Smile

‘Gummy Smile’ refers to a condition where the top lip goes too far above the top teeth when they smile.

This shows a large area of upper gums which can make the smile unattractive, causing self-consciousness.

Causes for ‘gummy smile’ could include:

  • thin upper lips
  • protruding teeth
  • hyperactive muscles

Treatment for Gummy Smile

Depending on the patient’s face, a couple of treatments could help to create a more natural and attractive smile shape

  • Botox injections, also known as Botulinum toxin, can be used to reduce the muscle activity which controls the top lip. This can be very effective. Patients can expect to retain all their normal facial movements, but the top lip will not ride as far above the teeth
  • Lip enhancement – where the problem is related to a thin top lip, adding some subtle volume with special lip fillers can address this imbalance, adding more substance to the lips and therefore preventing them from sliding so high above the teeth

Consultation

The best treatment plan can be assessed in a private consultation with an experienced Aesthetic Doctor.
