Botulinum Toxin for Gummy Smile

Botulinum toxin, commonly referred to as Botox, is a sought-after solution for addressing the issue of a gummy smile, where an excessive amount of gum tissue is exposed during smiling. Botox works by temporarily relaxing the specific muscles responsible for lifting the upper lip too high, resulting in a more aesthetically pleasing and balanced smile.

During the procedure, our skilled specialists administer precise injections of botulinum toxin into the targeted muscles involved in the gummy smile. This effectively inhibits the muscles’ contraction and reduces the elevation of the upper lip, leading to a more harmonious appearance between the gums and teeth when smiling. While the effects are temporary, typically lasting about three to four months, Metropolis excels in this treatment due to our practitioner’s extensive knowledge of facial aesthetics, personalized treatment plans, and commitment to patient safety. We use high-quality botulinum toxin products and maintain strict sterile protocols to ensure a comfortable and safe experience for our patients. Our goal is to enhance their smiles while maintaining facial harmony and confidence.

In summary, Botox is an effective solution for correcting gummy smiles by temporarily relaxing specific muscles. Metropolis stands out in providing this treatment due to our expertise, patient-centered approach, safety measures, and dedication to achieving natural-looking results that enhance our patients’ smiles and overall facial aesthetics.
