Gummy Smile

What Makes an “Ideal Smile”?

A beautiful smile is characterized by clear visibility of the upper set of teeth, front teeth that are identical and aligned in a straight line, and teeth that are free from discoloration or chips. It is important for an ideal smile to show no more than 2 mm of gums above the teeth and to have empty space between the corner of the lips and the upper back teeth.

Gummy Smile

Technique 1: Gummy Smile

Technique: Usually, one or two units of Botox are injected in the area between the upper lip and nose. This temporarily freezes the muscles responsible for contracting or elevating when you smile, allowing you to smile without showing your gums. Botox relaxes the muscles in the upper lip, limiting the rise of the lip when smiling, ensuring the gums remain covered.

Units: Typically, two or more units of Botox are injected in the area between the nose and upper lip to reduce the appearance of a gummy smile and achieve a more appealing and natural smile.

Results: Results can last up to three months.

Dosage:  1 to 3 units per side, and sometimes men may require a higher dose.

    Depth: Full Needle (Deep)

    Combining Botox with Other Non-surgical Nose Job Options

    • Lip injections are an effective option for addressing gummy smiles. Combining lip filler procedures can yield optimal results for patients with gummy smiles. Cosmexperts at Cosmedocs recommend dermal fillers for individuals with thin upper lips that result in excessive gum show. Lip fillers add volume to the lips, creating a better balance and reducing the appearance of excessive gum display.
