What Is A Gummy Smile?

A gummy smile (medically known as excessive gingival display) is the name given when the gum above the upper teeth is visible when smiling. Although we always expect to see the gums between teeth when we smile, in this case, the lip rests high on the gums, usually more than 3 millimetres above the teeth. Although not classed as a medical condition, a gummy smile can have an immense impact on confidence, making individuals reluctant to smile or self-conscious when they do.

What Causes A Gummy Smile?

There are several causes of a gummy smile; these include the following:

  • Gingival Hypertrophy (long or enlarged gums)
  • Teeth that are small in comparison to the gums
  • Maxillary Excess (upper jaw overgrowth that causes the gums to bulge out)
  • An upper lip that is too short to cover the gums or lifts too high when smiling

Introducing Our Popular Gummy Smile BOTOX®

While in the past, the only solution to a gummy smile was surgery or orthodontic work, this is no longer the case. As BOTOX® successfully relaxes the muscles, the treatment is perfect for restricting the movement of the upper lip and, therefore, allowing the gums to stay covered when smiling. Our gummy smile BOTOX® in Milton Keynes comes with minimal side effects, with results lasting for up to six months.

How Does BOTOX® Rectify A Gummy Smile?

As BOTOX® is designed to block the receptors, it is ideal for temporarily freezing the muscle responsible for contracting and elevating when you smile. BOTOX® will be injected into both sides of the nostril to begin weakening the upper lip elevator muscle, which sits between your upper lip and nose. This means that you will still be able to smile naturally and with ease, yet your gums will remain covered.

    Frequently Asked Questions

    I’m Super Happy With My Results

    "I have visited Lasaderm twice now and have been greeted by the lovely ladies at the reception! So the first time I was in was for sclerotherapy on a leg vein, and the second time for small spider veins on my face, both times with Dr Andrew Nnadi. He is so helpful and polite and really wants you to have the best outcome of the treatment. I’m super happy with my results so far and am looking forward to returning for my follow-up review."
