With our Gummy Smile treatment at Dr. Aesthetica, we can correct your gummy smile and, most importantly – give you your confidence back. Botox® (Botulinum Toxin) injections offer an effective non-surgical treatment to reduce the appearance of gummy smiles. Botox relaxes specific muscles around your mouth to stop your gums from showing when you smile. And the best part is you don't need any surgery whatsoever; in fact, you could be back at work the same day.
An average appointment for this treatment usually lasts around 30 minutes. You will start to see results in a few days, with optimal results usually seen around the 2-week mark after the treatment.
Also, it's worth noting that treatment for a Gummy Smile is generally pain-free. There's also an option for a numbing cream to be used on the area if you are concerned about any discomfort.
Side effects such as bruising, swelling, and bleeding tend to be very rare with this procedure.
The results of treating a gummy smile with Botox tend to last between 3 and 6 months but may last even longer depending on your skin's natural genetic make-up.
