Botox® for Gummy Smile

Located in Raleigh, North Carolina serving patients in Raleigh, Cary and Durham

A smile that exposes more than 3 mm of gummy show is considered a “gummy smile” and can be aesthetically bothersome. Clients who have this type of pull when smiling often describe trying to compensate by keeping their lip over the front of the teeth when smiling. An expert injector can assess and determine if you would be a good candidate for Botox in this area to soften the “pull” felt upon smiling and naturally allow the lip to cover more gummy show without looking unnatural. This procedure takes less than 5 minutes and is often performed 3-4 times a year with a very low amount of Botox. Clients often describe this as a “life changing” injection as they don’t have to think about trying to hide gum exposure upon animation.
