Gummy Smile

When we smile, our lips stretch back and can expose an amount of gum, but the amount of gum which shows varies from person to person. A gummy smile is a smile that exposes more gum than most, with the lips resting high on the gums.

If you would like help with a gummy smile, book an appointment with us or ring us on 020 3143 2637. Our Clapham aesthetic team is ready to help.

Fill Out Your Smile

A gummy smile can be easily treated with anti-wrinkle injections – a minimally invasive, quick procedure. When injected, Botox relaxes the muscles of the upper lip, limiting its contraction and elevation when smiling so that more of the gums will remain covered. Two or more units of Botox are injected in the area between the nose and upper lip to reduce the amount of gum exposed, creating a more appealing and natural smile.

  • HIDE EXPOSED GUMS
  • RELAX YOUR UPPER LIP
  • ACHIEVE A FULLER SMILE

At Medi Aesthetics, we believe that every authentic, natural smile is charming in its own right, but we also understand that some clients would prefer to have the smile of their choice, and are committed to giving our clients their desired outcome.

Treatment Areas

  • Gummy smiles tend to be genetic, stemming from issues such as excessive upper jaw growth, long or enlarged gum tissue, or a short or hyperactive upper lip, but regardless of the cause, anti-wrinkle injections are a highly effective treatment.

  • Injections are placed between the upper lip and the nose, ensuring the signals which cause contractions are blocked, resulting in an upper lip that no longer contracts or lifts as much when smiling.

  • Some clients experience a little discomfort, especially if nervous around needles, but Botox injections are a non-surgical treatment and the procedure is largely pain-free.

  • Anti-wrinkle injections have been used safely across the world for decades. Advancements in research and application mean that they are now used medically to help with teeth grinding and excessive underarm sweating.

    Botox is not advised for pregnant or nursing women, or for clients with muscle or nerve conditions that might not interact well with anti-wrinkle injections.

  • The results may vary from patient to patient but generally, the effects of anti-wrinkle injections last for 3 to 4 months.

  • It takes 2 to 3 days before you will begin to see results. The upper lip will gradually lower and the full results will be visible within 14 days of the treatment.
