What is a gummy smile?

A “Gummy Smile” is a smile that show excessive gums under the upper lip and above the top teeth. This may be most noticed when laughing and/or smiling as big as possible. Studies on facial and dental esthetics confirm that when smiling, the upper lip should rest just above the upper teeth and a minimal amount of gums should show. There are many causes of a gummy smile and many treatment solutions to help correct it.

How can my gummy smile be fixed?

In the past, the procedure recommended to correct a gummy smile has almost always been surgical. The most common reported side effects of these procedures have been pain and loss of sensation of nerves, which have caused many people with gummy smiles to avoid correction. With the use of botox and filler procedures, Dr. Stapleton in West Houston can non-surgically improve the appearance of a gummy smile. Botox can help reduce the high mobility of the upper lip by relaxing the muscle. Filler can provide more upper lip volume which will hide more gum tissue when you smile. Dr. Stapleton will carefully examine your individual situation and determine the correct treatment choice for your individual case. Contact us today to schedule a complimentary consultation to see if your gummy smile can be fixed through this procedure!
