Gummy Smiles

Some people feel that they show alot of gum when they smile. One cause is a hyperactive muscle which lifts the upper lip, but also a thin upper lip can contribute to the problem.

Our clinical team are trained in different ways to improve a patient’s gummy smile. Each case needs careful assessment and then we can advise as to which treatment option is best. Treatment can range from muscle relaxing injections, to lip enhancement, to gum surgery.

“Before this treatment I would spend a lot of time in front of the mirror practicing smiling in a way that my gums were less noticeable. I felt really self conscious about it. I never even thought it is something that could be treated! I am so pleased with the results and I feel so much more self confident. Thank you, Sandra”
