About 20% of people have what is called a “gummy smile,” where there is excess gingiva (gum tissue) above the upper teeth when smiling.

Frequently Asked Questions

How Does Gummy Smile Correction Work?

When some people smile, their upper lip elevates too far above their upper teeth, exposing gums and producing an unattractive “Gummy Smile.” This phenomenon could be due to several factors. One of the reasons is hyperactive muscle which elevates the upper lip. Occasionally, the gummy smile is also aggravated by a thin upper lip that further contributes to the problem by exposing the upper gum even more.

While for most people smiling is an expression of happiness, individuals whose gums stand out more than their smile does often feel self-conscious. Very often those with gummy smiles try to control and minimize their smile and some feel so self-conscious that they prefer not to smile at all. This may have a detrimental effect on one’s professional, social, and personal relationships.

Thankfully, gummy smile reduction is now possible, simple and effective. Utilizing a non-surgical approach by injecting small amounts of Botox® into the hyperactive muscle of the upper lip, the Physician and Nurses at Suddenly Slimmer Med Spa will give you a smile that is natural and carefree. This simple procedure will weaken the hyperactive muscles and reduce the elevation of your upper lip, thereby reducing your inhibiting gummy smile. If a thin upper lip is a contributing factor, the Physician and Nurses at Suddenly Slimmer Med Spa, may suggest concomitant upper lip augmentation with FDA approved fillers such as Volbella, Restylane or Juvederm. *
