Gummy Smile Treatment Antigua
In a perfect smile, the lip should sit just above the top of the teeth, but some people have problems with a disproportionate gum tissue to teeth ratio, leaving them self-conscious about their smile & the amount of gum shown when smiling (known as gummy smile).
Causes for ‘gummy smile’ could include:
- Thin upper lips
- Protruding teeth
- Hyperactive muscles
Treatment For Gummy Smile
Depending on the patient’s face, a couple of treatments could help to create a more natural and attractive smile shape
- Botox injections, also known as Botulinum toxin, can be used to reduce the muscle activity which controls the top lip. This can be very effective. Patients can expect to retain all their normal facial movements, but the top lip will not ride as far above the teeth
- Lip enhancement – where the problem is related to a thin top lip, adding some subtle volume with special lip fillers can address this imbalance, adding more substance to the lips and therefore preventing them from sliding so high above the teeth
