Gummy Smile Treatment – Gummy Smile Botox

Home Dentistry Cosmetic Dentistry Gummy Smile Treatment – Gummy Smile Botox

Excessive gingival display refers to a condition where too much gum tissue shows above the top teeth when a person smiles. If you have a lip line resting too high or too low on your teeth, it causes a gummy smile. The Gummy Smile Botox Treatment can help deal with this problem. Treating a gummy smile with Botox is simpler and much easier than other alternatives. This page discusses how this new technique works and how much a person has to pay for it.

Causes of a Gummy Smile

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

  • Strong upper-lip muscles
  • Larger than the regular size of the gums
  • The teeth are small compared to the jaw’s size
  • Shorter than the regular size of the upper-lip
  • Shorter than the regular size of the front teeth
  • Vertical maxillary excess or an overgrowth of the upper jaw

What is Gummy Smile Treatment?

A gummy smile does not always occur due to smaller teeth or longer gum tissues. It can also occur due to strong upper-lip muscles. Luckily, both surgical and non-surgical options are available to fix the gummy smile problem. In gummy smile surgery, a dental surgeon removes extra gum tissue to give the mouth proper shape. However, if you would rather have non-surgical treatment, you may qualify for Gummy Smile Botox Treatment. Botox for Gummy Smile Dubai relaxes strong upper-lip muscles to enhance facial appearance.

Treatment Techniques

There are several treatment techniques for Gummy smile and Gum Recontouring. However, at Euromed Clinic Center, we use Botox for treating a gummy smile.

Pre- and Post-Procedure Care

It is a non-surgical and minimally invasive treatment; therefore, candidates don’t need to follow strict instructions before and after the procedure.


Gummy Smile Botox effectively treats the gummy smile problem. Botox contains botulinum toxin type A. When this toxin is injected into the treatment area, it relaxes the upper-lip muscles. As a result, the upper lip rises less while smiling and the gums remain covered.

During the procedure, the dentist injects two or more Botox units between the nose and the upper lip. These injections reduce the gumminess of the smile, creating a more attractive smile.

Recovery and Results

The recovery period is usually short. Moreover, the results are immediate and natural-looking. However, the results will become noticeable with full effect in 2 weeks after the procedure. Candidates can resume their routine activities immediately after the procedure. Generally, the results last for about 3 months.

  • There are no severe risks and side effects.
  • The smile of the person improves.
  • The person feels much better with the confidence boost.
  • This treatment does not come with any downtime.
