A person can have a gummy smile, which causes their smile to look less than perfect. That is why people take gummy smile treatment to fix this issue. Treating gummy smile with Botox is simpler than other alternatives.
This page discusses how this new technique works and how much a person has to pay for it.

What is a Gummy Smile?

Excessive gingival display or gummy smile refers to a condition where too much gum tissue shows above the top teeth when a person smiles.

It is possible to overcome this issue and you do not necessarily have to undergo surgery because a non-surgical option is available.
Before we discuss possible solutions, let’s first have a look at the causes.

Avail Financing


There can be a variety of reasons for a gummy smile but it often occurs due to the following reasons:

  • The strong upper lip muscles.
  • The size of the gums is larger than normal.
  • The teeth are small compared to the jaw’s size.
  • The size of the upper lip is shorter than normal.
  • The size if the front teeth are shorter than normal.
  • Vertical maxillary excess or an overgrowth of the upper jaw.

Gummy Smile Treatment

Surgical and non-surgical options are available to fix this important problem. In gummy smile surgery, a dental surgeon removes extra gum tissue to give the area a proper shape.

If you would rather like to have non-surgical treatment, you may qualify for our gummy smile Botox. Gummy smile Botox treatment relaxes such strong muscles to enhance the appearance.

Why Botox injections for this problem? Please note that gummy simile does not always occur due to smaller teeth or longer gum tissues, it can also occur due to strong upper lips muscles.
