Improve your smile with BOTOX,
reducing the appearance of your gums.

In the right candidate, this excellent procedure will give you results you never thought were possible and lift your confidence to new heights.

Often patients will rely on orthodontics to achieve a reduced gum line using elements such as braces or even lasers to reduce the size of the gum area, whereas Botox can be used to create the same effect.

Unlike orthodontics which can take many years to adjust the gum line the Botox treatment is quick, and cost effective. This treatment is often a great way to test the look of a reduced gum area, before deciding to opt for a permanent procedure at the dentist.

How does Gummy smile Botox work?

This is the secret behind many a Hollywood Celebrity smile. It is often the case that high profile celebrities do not have the time to undergo years of aesthetic treatment under the media eye to get rid of gummy smiles. To achieve the Hollywood smile, it is possible to have Botox injected into the muscles of the upper lip to decrease the amount of lip area shown, and in turn decrease that so called ‘gummy smile’.

The aim is that once the lip area has been injected and the Botox starts to take affect over the upcoming days or weeks, the lips will drape over the teeth so that overt gum lines are no longer visible. The treatment can last up to six months.

I don’t have any top lip when I smile and a large gum line. Would this treatment suit me

Often patients come to us thinking that a complete orthodontic smile makeover costing up to tens of thousands of pounds is the only answer to such a dramatic smile transformation. You can achieve many of your desired mouth goals through the use of clever Botox and filler. In this instance I would certainly suggest that some shaping and plumping of the lip line with subtle, natural looking filler, accompanied by Botox in the top lip area so that you no longer have such prominent gum line. Aesthetically speaking, it is said the around 2mm of gum line showing is the ideal look that we want to achieve.
