When you smile, do you see more of your gums than your teeth? If so, you may have what’s often called a gummy smile. However, opinions about gummy smiles vary from person to person, and Your dentist at Monmouth Dental Arts believes that if you love your smile, there’s nothing you should change about its appearance. On the other hand, if you’re someone who is bothered by a gummy smile you may be searching for solutions or perhaps wonder what caused it in the first place. You’re in luck, we’re here to help.
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.
