A gummy smile can easily and effectively be treated with Botox. Two or more units of Botox are injected in the area between the nose and upper lip to reduce the appearance of any “gummy” smile, creating a more appealing and natural smile. When injected, it relaxes the muscles in the upper lip and limits the rise of the upper lip when smiling, so the gums will remain covered. Treating a gummy smile with Botox is a minimally invasive procedure.
