Gummy Smile

When smiling, some struggle with a gummy smile or the over-showing of the upper gums.

Botox® is a popular option for reducing the appearance of a gummy smile. It works by reducing movement in the upper lip, preventing it from retracting and exposing a significant amount of gum tissue when smiling.
