A gummy smile, also known as gingival smile, can produce serious cosmetic issues as the smile is one of our most important aesthetic factors. This issue is present when the patient presents an excess of gingival tissues on his/her upper denture which is revealed when that person smiles/laughs, affecting the overall appearance of the smile. Among the causes of gummy smile, there is an improper growth of the teeth, the upper lip muscle is overactive revealing too much gingival tissue or it is caused by the improper growth of the jaw, especially if a bulge has formed at the base of the upper teeth. There are several forms of treatment, but we strongly recommend that, when possible, you use the Botox gummy smile correction because it is one of the most effective non-surgical gummy smile treatments.

The botulinum toxin, or Botox, is used in this procedure due to its ability to inhibit the movement of the facial muscles. If you choose to undergo this procedure at Renew Skin & Health Clinic, one of our dental specialists will evaluate what type of gummy smile you present and will recommend the proper treatment. If Botox gummy smile correction is the best course of action for your particular medical requirements, then the botulinum toxin will be administered via Botox micro-injection in the designated muscles, which will reduce their ability to move and reveal the excessive gingival tissue. The procedure is very safe and requires no recovery period. After several months, another Botox session will be necessary in order to refresh the effects of the first procedure.

At Renew Skin & Health Clinic, our dental and cosmetic specialists are able to correct your gummy smile by administering effective Botox for gummy smile correction in a safe and controlled environment. For an appointment, simply contact Renew Skin & Health Clinic Head Office.
