Gummy Smile

A gummy smile reveals an excess of gum under the upper lip, known as excess gingival display, when one smiles. 

It is often a matter of personal aesthetics whether your smile is ‘too gummy’, but generally speaking more than 4 millimeters is considered to be disproportionate. 

It is crucial that the cause of your gummy smile is accurately diagnosed to render appropriate treatment, whether that be through dental work or muscle relaxing injections here at the clinic. 

Treatments which can help with this concern include:

  • Botulinum toxin injections
