How Can Cosmetic Injectables Help Improve a Gummy Smile?

Looking down smileWhen it comes to achieving a beautiful smile, cosmetic injectables can be a game changer.

These minimally invasive treatments enhance the appearance of your lips, cheeks, and other facial features, helping you achieve a more youthful, radiant look.

What Is a Gummy Smile?

A gummy smile occurs when the gums are visible above the teeth when a person smiles. This can be caused by various factors, including genetics, overactive lip muscles, and excessive gum tissue. While it doesn’t pose any health risks, it may affect a person’s confidence and self-esteem, so they hesitate to smile.

How Cosmetic Injectables May Help

We use a popular cosmetic injectable, Botulinum Toxin A to relax the muscles that cause wrinkles and fine lines around the eyes and forehead. By preventing these muscles from contracting, it helps reduce the appearance of crow’s feet, frown lines, and other common signs of ageing.

This procedure is also useful for relaxing the muscles that control the movement of the upper lip. By injecting small amounts of the product into specific areas of the upper lip, the muscles are weakened, and the lips are unable to raise as high, resulting in less exposure of the gums.

Quick and simple, with minimal discomfort, this process may get you results. Most patients report feeling only a slight pinch during the injection process, and there is no downtime required. The effects of the treatment typically last three to four months, and a repeat treatment may be necessary.

Is It Right for You?

If you’re considering using injectables, it’s important to schedule a consultation with our dentist. They will be able to assess your condition and recommend the best course of action based on your unique needs.

It’s also important to have realistic expectations. While this procedure can significantly reduce the appearance of a gummy smile, it may not eliminate it entirely. In some cases, additional services may be necessary to achieve the desired results.
