A gummy smile is pretty self explanatory; when a patient smiles their gums, teeth and jaw are not working in harmony with each other.
This can be treated non-surgically with muscle relaxant injections into the longitudinal muscle either side of the nose (above the lip). This injection weakens the this overactive muscle which elevates (lifts) the lip. The result is a nice balanced, natural smile.
A thin upper lip can also contribute ‘gummy smile’ on patients. If this is also a concern then patients may also need dermal filler to correct this in their top lip.
You would be surprised how many Hollywood stars have had anti wrinkle (muscle relaxant) injections to treat a ‘gummy smile’.
