How Can BOTOX Treat a Gummy Smile?

BOTOX® Cosmetic is an emerging treatment for gummy smiles, which means a lot of gum tissue shows while relatively little tooth is visible when you smile. It can have the effect of making your teeth look short and your gums too prominent.

When injected into specific locations in muscles that allow you to smile, BOTOX® prevents the smile from pulling back too far and high, thereby concealing the overabundant gum tissue. It’s a completely non-invasive, non-surgical – although temporary – way to enhance your smile. Injections can be re-administered once the effect fades in the months ahead.
