Beautiful natural smile

Gummy Smile

Gummy smile occurs when the muscles above the mouth are hyperactive, pulling up the top lip. Not only can this be physically uncomfortable, but it is not aesthetically pleasing when a person smiles. This leads to more gum to be exposed while smiling than would normally be visible.

A treatment of anti-wrinkle injections targeted into this hyperactive muscle relaxes it and allows the lip to sit naturally. The result is a natural smile where the lips, gums and teeth are all in proportion. An anti-wrinkle injection treatment can create the same effect as thousands of dollars in expensive dental work and give your self-esteem a boost with a beautiful new smile.

How does the treatment work

During your one on one consultation, your doctor will explain the details of the procedure and determine how much muscle relaxant is needed to sufficiently relax the upper lip muscle. They will also give you details on treatment aftercare to ensure the best possible results from your treatment.

Your experienced doctor will then inject  into the upper lip muscle using very fine needles, making the treatment virtually painless. The results of your treatment will show after 10 days. You may notice some bruising or swelling around the injection sites. This will subside in two to three days. 

The results of your anti-wrinkle injection treatment will last from 3 to 4 months. At this point, a follow-up treatment will be needed to maintain your new smile.
