Our surgery-free treatment will allow for rapid correction to your smile through muscle relaxant injections to the muscles that control the upper lip. With minimal recovery time, this fast treatment can have you smiling confidently in no time!
HOW DOES GUMMY SMILE TREATMENTS WORK?
A gummy smile happens when either the muscles that control your lips overextend themselves, or if you have small lips, your lips do not cover your gums. Each is simple to correct with a couple of injections. Injections correcting overextension use muscle relaxant. This chemical acts to block the signals in the muscle causing them to relax stopping overextension of the muscle. Enlarging lips involves injecting a Dermal filler into the upper lip reducing the amount of gum visible while smiling.
