Gummy Smile

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.

Visible Effects

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.

Underlying Causes

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.
