Understanding Gummy Smiles with London Dental Arts in Forest Hill

When one grins, and their lip exposes too much gum, it’s termed a gummy smile. Ideally, only tiny pinkish triangles (gingiva) between the teeth should be visible during a smile. Some individuals with a pronounced gummy smile might feel self-conscious or think their teeth look smaller than they should. The good news? in London Dental Arts we offer Botox treatments to remedy this.

What Causes a Gummy Smile?

  • Enlarged gum tissue (gingival hypertrophy).
  • Genetic predisposition causing excessive growth of the upper jaw (vertical maxillary excess).
  • A short or overactive upper lip.
  • Teeth size and shape can sometimes make more gum tissue visible.

Botox Treatment at London Dental Arts

Botox contains botulinum toxin type A, which can easily treat a gummy smile by relaxing the upper lip muscles, ensuring the gums remain covered when smiling. It’s a non-invasive, swift procedure, and the relaxed upper lip no longer contracts excessively when smiling. Results usually last for 3 months, but with repeated procedures over time, the duration between treatments can extend.
