What is a "Gummy smile"?


Excessive gum exposure during smiling or laughing defines the gummy smile. Although completely harmless it can be a cause of embarrassment or an insecurity for many people who have them.


Types of Smile


There are three different types of smile, with the second most common, the canine smile, being the one that may cause the gummy smile.

 

This smile type results from the levator labii superioris muscle elevates the upper lip. If there is a natural over-contraction of this muscle, the gummy smile occurs. The levator labii superioris alaeque nasi can also play an important part in causing the gummy smile.

Aim of treatment. 

The aim of treating a gummy smile with botulinum toxin is to avoid gums showing at rest 
to reduce excessive gum exposure during a laugh/ smile.

The botox injections are a simple and safe procedure, involving a small injections to target the levator labii superioris muscle's to reduce the gum line exposure.
