A gummy smile, known as excessive gingival display, is when you smile and too much gum tissue shows above the top teeth. It often makes people feel self-conscious or that their smile seems less attractive.
A little muscle relaxant is injected on each side of the lower nose muscle to relax the area to drop the lip slightly, so less gum tissue is showing when smiling. This enhances the natural balance of the lower face.
This is a very quick, easy and affordable treatment that uses very few units of muscle relaxant injected either side of the lower nose.
How soon will I see results?
As with many other muscle relaxant treatments, full effect will take approximately two weeks.
How long will the treatment last?
Longevity of results vary from patient to patient, however on average you can expect results to last 3-4months. Repeating treatment before previous treatment has worn off, will ensure that results last a little longer each time.
