“Gummy smile” is a condition in which someone’s gums are exposed too much while they are smiling. This problem is caused when the lips ride up on the gums when smiling, which can lead to individuals feeling very uncomfortable about their smile. Botox can be a successful treatment to help reduce the strength of the muscles that control the lips, which will allow one to smile without so much of their gums being seen. Motykie Med Spa, led by board certified plastic surgeon Dr. Gary Motykie, provides Botox for the treatment of gummy smiles to patients in Beverly Hills, West Hollywood, Los Angeles, and surrounding communities.
Treatment of a gummy smile typically only requires a small dosage of Botox; around one or two units. During your procedure, Botox will be injected into the area between the nose and upper lip to relax the muscles that are responsible for pulling the lips up when smiling. Following the procedure, you will still be able to smile and have natural-looking results, but the amount of gum showing will be reduced.
