What is a Gummy Smile?

Excess gum tissue visibility during a smile identifies a gummy smile, leading to the perception of shorter teeth and a less visually appealing smile. Although this is a prevalent concern for many people, it has the potential to affect self-confidence and impede social interactions.

Botox and Gummy Smile :

Botox is an excellent option for treating a gummy smile. It targets and relaxes the muscles that cause excessive lifting of the upper lip during smiling.

Injecting Botox into specific muscles around the upper lip, such as the LLSAN and zygomaticus minor muscles, reduces the upward movement of the lip, resulting in less gum tissue exposure and a more balanced smile

Why Choose Botox for a Gummy Smile? 

  • Muscle Relaxation:

Botox targets the specific muscles responsible for pulling the upper lip too high, leading to excessive gum exposure when smiling.

By relaxing these muscles, Botox helps reduce the elevation of the upper lip, resulting in less gum display and a more balanced smile.

  • Subtle Smile Adjustment:

Our experts at CosmeDocs offer Botox for Gummy Smile as an effective solution for correcting a gummy smile without the need for invasive surgical procedures.

The controlled relaxation of muscles allows for a gradual reduction in gum exposure, resulting in a more aesthetically pleasing smile that appears proportionate and genuine.

  • Effortless Enhancement:

Here at CosmeDocs, Botox injections for a gummy smile are designed to fit seamlessly into your busy life.

Our quick and convenient appointments mean you can easily schedule your treatment with minimal interruption to your daily routine.

  • Non-Surgical Procedure:

Unlike surgical interventions, Gummy Smile Botox is a non-surgical procedure, reducing the risks, discomfort, and recovery time associated with traditional surgery.

  • Balanced Smile:

Our goal at CosmeDocs is to enhance your smile while maintaining a natural appearance.

After this procedure, your smile exposes less gum tissue, resulting in a more symmetrical and pleasing appearance

  • No Recovery Time:

Botox for a gummy smile means no downtime. After treatment, you can get back to your normal routine right away, without any restrictions. Your smile transformation is seamless and hassle-free with Botox.

Gummy Smile Botox Procedure: 

  • Consultation: Your healthcare provider will assess your gummy smile, determining gum exposure, underlying causes, and factors.
  • Customized Treatment Plan: Our personalized approach at CosmeDocs helps ensure optimal results. So, we tailor the dosage of Botox to each individual based on your specific anatomy and the severity of the gummy smile.
  • Injection Process: The procedure involves a series of small injections into the muscles responsible for lifting the upper lip. This process is relatively quick and typically completed within a short timeframe.
  • Follow-Up Care: We believe in comprehensive care, which includes post-treatment follow-up to ensure your satisfaction and address any concerns you may have.

Results and Maintenance:

Duration of results: Over the following days to weeks, the Botox gradually relaxes the treated muscles, resulting in less upward movement of the upper lip when smiling.

Maintenance: The effects of Botox on the muscles usually last for 4 to 6 months before gradually wearing off. So, maintenance sessions of Gummy Smile Botox are recommended to sustain the desired reduction in gum exposure.
