The appearance of our gums when we smile is called Gummy Smile and its treatment is called gummy smile botox. Our gums can affect our smile. Showing more gums while smiling is not aesthetic. Correction of a gingival smile is a common complaint of patients seeking improvement in their aesthetic appearance. Prolonged exposure to gums or excess gum display during a smile is often considered uncomfortable and distracting. A smile is unattractive when exposed to more than 4mm of gingiva. Women tend to have the appearance of gums more often than men. A beautiful smile is one that creates a harmonious and balanced appearance. Your teeth, gums and lips should be perfectly proportioned from an aesthetic point of view.
Most people think that botox is only for erasing the lines around the eyes and eyebrows, or for masseter therapy that treats the chin muscle, but it has many more uses that can improve both appearance and quality of life. Botox is known as a neuromodulator that works to block the nerve messages sent from the brain to the muscles, and the ingredient that provides this is botulinum toxin. Exaggerated upper tooth structure and lip shape can cause excessive exposure of the upper gingiva. Gummy smile botox will partially paralyze the muscles that cause retraction in the lip. The result will be a more beautiful and attractive smile.
What Causes Gummy Smile?
There are several reasons for this smile situation. Make sure it's not a genetic problem.
The most important reason is gingival enlargement or vertical maxillary excess. This is the case of excessive growth of the upper jaw in the vertical direction. It leaves the spaces between the upper lips and causes the gums to be exposed when smiling. However, wrong tooth angle, thick gingival tissue and short upper lip are also prominent reasons for this unexpected smile.
How does Gummy Smile Botox work?
You may not have heard of it, but Botox is actually a great way to relieve many aesthetic concerns about your smile. Although it is generally used to remove fine lines and wrinkles in the facial tissue, the only method to correct a smile that exposes the gums is the Gummy smile botox application. It works by relaxing the muscles in the upper lip and allows the upper lip to cover the gum tissue effectively without hindering the smile and lip movements. Thus, when you smile, only your teeth become visible, not your gums. You should wait 10 to 15 days to notice improvement. However, full results may take 3 weeks or perhaps less than that.
Usually 2-3 sessions are sufficient. Each contains one or two units of Botox, which is sufficient for smaller areas. Additional applications may be suggested in case you want more unique changes.

What is Botox?
Botox is a purified low-concentration form of the bacterial toxin. When injected in small doses, Botox can safely and temporarily relax muscles by blocking the chemical signals that cause them to contract. By preventing these muscles from contracting and tightening, the skin will appear flatter, smoother and less wrinkled overall.
Botox has a long safety record because it has been used for decades as a medicinal product and more recently as a cosmetic treatment.

Although Gummy Smile Botox is a quick and convenient procedure that provides great results and smiles for many patients, it is not the right choice for everyone. Your doctor will discuss your concerns and aesthetic goals in detail to determine if botox will best meet your needs.
A gummy smile botox treatment usually takes about fifteen minutes to complete and there is only mild discomfort as the injections are given. He will place multiple doses at strategic locations in the treatment area to target the muscle rather than the crease itself. The injection needle is small and the rapid nature of the treatment is designed to maximize patient comfort.
What happens after Gummy Smile Botox treatment?
You will be able to return to your normal activities immediately after the Gummy smile botox treatment. In cases where there is slight bruising, it can be covered with make-up. If you have any pain after treatment, ice compresses can be applied to relieve discomfort. Over-the-counter pain relievers may also be used, although this is rarely necessary.
Gummy smile botox treatments are safe, but in some cases, side effects and complications may occur.
These may include:
- Pain and bruising at the injection sites
- skin redness
Fortunately, most patients find the pain easily tolerable and eliminate the need for prior anesthesia. However, if you are concerned about your comfort level, your doctor and team may apply a topical numbing cream to the treatment area prior to the procedure. If you prefer this addition, please wait an extra 20 to 30 minutes. Please schedule a consultation with your Doctor to determine how many injections and sessions you need to achieve the best results.
