Gummy Smile

Newport Road Dental Clinic

Gummy Smile

When the top lip recedes, causing more gum to be exposed when smiling it is called a ‘gummy smile.’

A small amount of Botox in a combination of injections near and below the nose is a minimally invasive way to relax the muscles in the upper lip. Following the treatment the muscles will no longer contract to expose the gum.

A gummy smile can also be caused by excess gum covering the upper teeth. This can be treated with gum contouring, or reshaping, and involves cutting away or removing excess gum tissue around your teeth to reshape your gum line. This is a quick and painless dental treatment which can be performed in just one visit, leaving you with a bright and healthy smile.
