What is a gummy smile?

Most people would agree that a beautiful, natural smile can brighten up anyone’s face. Smiling makes us look friendlier and more approachable, and it offers the people around us a glimpse into our hearts. At the same time, the ability to smile improves our own sense of self-worth and well-being.

So what happens when a smile attracts attention for all the wrong reasons? This can be the case for people who suffer from excessive gingival display, more commonly called a “gummy smile”, in which the upper gums are prominently displayed while smiling.

This condition can result in feelings of self-consciousness and a reluctance to spend time with people. Fortunately, if you feel that a gummy smile is interfering with your work and social interactions and causing you to withdraw from people, there is an easy solution.

Wouldn’t it be easier to just get surgery?

For people looking for a long-lasting solution to their gummy smile, surgery is certainly an option. Your doctor or dentist might recommend one or two out of several options that are available, depending on the underlying cause of your gummy smile. While these procedures can be effective, they are generally quite invasive and a lot costlier than Botox treatments.

Some advantages to gummy smile Botox include the following:

  • Treatments only last about thirty minutes, and can easily be scheduled during a lunch break or early in the morning before work
  • The treatment is non-invasive and pain-free
  • No downtime is needed for recovery: you will be able resume daily activities right away
  • Results can be seen quickly, and can last anywhere from three to nine months

In rare instances, depending on the cause of the gummy smile, surgery may be a better option. Examples of this include the following:

  • The upper lip is too short to cover the gums during a smile
  • The upper jaw is positioned in such a way that there is excessive vertical length around the mouth
  • Insufficient dental eruption has resulted in short teeth
  • An overgrowth of gum tissue has resulted from a medical condition or treatment

How does gummy smile Botox work?

Gummy smile generally results from excessive contraction of the facial muscles, located near the bottom of the nose on either side, that are responsible for lifting the upper lip when smiling. Botox works by preventing those muscular contractions, thereby making the face look and feel more relaxed, and ensuring that the lips cover up the gums to allow a more natural-looking smile.

At Novuskin, we start every procedure with an in-depth consultation, during which we will assess the severity of your gummy smile and determine how many units of Botox should be used for each of the affected facial muscles.

How can I get started?

If you want to replace your gummy smile with a beautiful smile that will light up the room, call us and ask for an evaluation. During the consultation, your clinician will assess whether your gummy smile is mild, moderate, advanced or severe based on what percentage of your gum is being displayed. We will also look at whether the gums are equally pronounced on both sides of your face. This will enable us to create a customized treatment plan that will leave your smile looking lovely and natural.
