Many people feel self-conscious about their smiles for a wide variety of reasons. Often, this is down to the shape, colour, or condition of their teeth, but for some, it has to do with their gum line. Feeling that one’s gums are too prominent or that they are too exposed when smiling is a common concern among our North Cotswold patients. Fortunately, there is a quick and simple solution to that problem.

As the name implies, the gummy smile Botox procedure involves treating the area around the gum line with an injection of botulinum toxin type A (commonly known as Botox). The phenomenon of a gummy smile is typically the result of hyperactive muscles in the upper lip that cause it to become elevated. This can be even more pronounced among patients who already have a thin upper lip, as it leaves even more of the gum line exposed.
The most effective treatment for a gummy smile involves a small injection of Botox into the junction between the upper lip and the nose. When properly administered, this process reduces the activity of the upper lip muscles, making them less elevated and the gum line less exposed.
To decide if this procedure is right for you, we invite you to a free consultation with our medical professional. They will discuss the treatment with you and what you hope to get from it. They will also be able to answer any concerns or questions you might have about the process.
The gummy smile Botox procedure is quick and painless, usually being completed within a matter of minutes. Like all Botox treatments, it will take 5-7 days for the injection to take effect.
This procedure is perfectly safe when performed by the trained medical and cosmetic specialist at J2 Medical. The treatment requires a couple of small injections between the nostrils and upper lip to relax the muscle and prevent overexposure of your gums. It is a non-invasive treatment, requiring no recovery time. We use only the best Botox products to ensure a quality job.
