Although prominent gums are completely harmless, a gummy smile can make you feel self-conscious and can affect how you feel when you see photos of yourself.
It has been shown that a smile will usually be perceived as gummy when four millimetres of gum tissue shows.
There are a few causes for gummy smiles such as:
Improperly erupted teeth
A hyperactive lip that looks normal when the face is at rest but lifts too much when smiling
A short upper lip
An overgrowth of the upper jaw
This can help to lower the lip and cover the gums, giving you a brighter, more confident smile. If the cause of your gummy smile requires more extensive treatment, such as dental surgery, there are options available to help fix your smile and restore your confidence. It is important to consult with a dental or medical professional to determine the most appropriate treatment for your specific needs and goals.
A Popular Treatment for Gummy Smile
Neuromodulators such as Botox are substances that are injected into muscles in order to temporarily block the transmission of nerve impulses and prevent muscle contractions. During your consultation, we will evaluate the distance of the gums to the upper lips and the muscle strength. This will help determine the number of neuromodulators units needed to achieve your desired smile.
