Gummy Smile

Most people have a small area of exposed gum above their teeth when they smile. For some, though, this area of exposed gum is larger than normal, creating what is known as a “gummy smile.” Gummy smiles have traditionally been treated with surgical procedures, leaving many people hesitant to even seek treatment. Now, however, there is a nonsurgical, noninvasive way to treat a gummy smile—with Botox! Our office can use precisely placed Botox injections to prevent overexposure of the gums when smiling.
