The spontaneity of a smile is an unmistakable and infectious expression of happiness recognized across all cultures. Each smile is unique but for some, a smile may not be a completely comfortable and effortless gesture. In the case of a gummy smile – a smile exposing significant gumline – Cutis offers a simple, safe and temporary solution.
When smiling, the space between the upper lip and the top of the teeth can reveal excess gum tissue, making the teeth appear smaller and giving a displeasing smile.
The size of the teeth and gum overgrowth can lead to the appearance of a gummy smile. Thin upper lips and strong upper lip muscles can also enhance a gummy smile.
As a centre for aesthetic dermatology and facial cosmetic surgery, we offer neuromodulator solutions with BOTOX COSMETIC® treatments. A few carefully administered injections can control the movement of the upper lip, thus reducing the amount of gum line revealed when smiling. This non-invasive procedure poses little to no discomfort and recovery. This approach also offers an effective alternative to more costly and invasive gum surgery. We welcome you to schedule a consultation and/or treatment to address your gummy smile today. Contact us for further information.
