treatments

As the cause of a gummy smile can be multifactorial, it may require a multidisciplinary approach to treatment including orthodontics and facial aesthetics. During a consultation, we can guide you on the best treatment approach.

Anti-wrinkle injections: Injection of a naturally occurring protein can help to relax smile muscles which reduces the amount of gum shown during smiling.

Dermal filler: Soft tissue fillers can enhance the volume of the lip which masks the gum on display during the smiling action.

Cosmetic dentistry: If the cause of a gummy smile is related to dental issues, you may need to see your dentist before seeking medical aesthetic treatments.
