Smiling is a beautiful way to undoubtedly light up a room and make those around you feel warm and welcome. Although every smile is unique and special in its own way, sometimes certain features such as having a substantial amount of your upper gumline showing may make you feel self-conscious and even insecure when you smile.
The gummy smile is a condition that is when there is an excessive amount of your gumline (about 3 to 4 millimeters) that is exposed. Though the gummy smile is fairly common, some people may feel insecure about their gummy smile.
If you feel insecure about your gummy smile, don’t let this get in the way of you smiling, laughing, and spreading love and joy with your smile. In this article, you’ll learn about how Botox, Jeauvau, and Dysport treatments can each help fix your gummy smile and produce the same amazing results so you can feel comfortable and confident with your smile!
What Is A Gummy Smile
Although no one definition classifies a gummy smile, there are several visual signs regarding one’s gumline that one can notice that signals the appearance of a gummy smile. These signs include the size and shape of your teeth, how your lips move, and the angle of your jaw relative to the rest of your face.
Therefore, all the above signs impact how exposed your gumline is which can create the appearance of a gummy smile. Although all smiles are unique and beautiful in their own way, having a gummy smile that exposes a large part of your upper gum line can take the focus away from your smile onto your gum line.
What Causes A Gummy Smile
There are several reasons why one can have a gummy smile. Below are just a few common reasons why you may have a gummy smile.
- The difference in how your adult teeth grew in
- A short upper lip
- Enlarged gum tissue
- Bone structure
Different Treatments For Gummy Smile
Now that you’ve learned all about what a gummy smile is and the main causes of a gummy smile, it’s time to get into the good stuff- how to fix your gummy smile! If you have a gummy smile that you are insecure about, you don’t have to feel self-conscious every time you smile for the rest of your life.
There are a variety of treatment options to correct your gummy smile. These methods include:
- Dental (surgical procedure options)
- Cosmetic (injectables like Botox)
- Speech therapy
Although surgical procedures and speech therapy sessions can correct your gummy smile, each method does have some disadvantages that cannot be ignored. Surgery is unpredictable and costly, while speech therapy lessons may take a long time to fully correct your gummy smile. Therefore, if you are looking for effective, fast results at affordable prices, look no further than getting an injectable treatment option to fix your gummy smile.
At BB Aesthetic, we offer injectable treatment options that can help fix your gummy smile. These treatments include Botox, Jeauvau, and Dysport. Each treatment option gives the same amazing results for a smile that you feel comfortable and confident with.
Read below to find out how each of these three treatment options we offer can help fix your gummy smile to produce the same beautiful results.
Gummy Smile Botox Treatment
Botox treatment for gummy smile is a great way to get a Lip Flip using Botox to reduce the excess look of your upper gumline. How this is done is the Botox injection relaxes the muscles which ultimately helps the lower the upper lip to conceal that excess gumline that causes your gummy smile.
You should expect the treatment to last about no more than 10 to 20 minutes, making this a quick and easy way to correct your gummy smile.
The treatment itself consists of our trained specialist applying a few injections around the upper lip area. This ultimately relaxes the upper lip muscle which helps conceal the excess gumline.
It’s important to note not to expect immediate changes right after the treatment. It takes about one week to see visible changes of the Botox Lip Flip at work fixing your gummy smile.
Likewise, a Botox treatment to fix a gummy smile lasts about three to four months before you’ll start to notice your excess upper gumline become visible again. Therefore, it’s important to schedule repeated appointments after every three to four months to ensure you are keeping up-to-date with fixing your gummy smile.
Gummy Smile Jeauvau Treatment
Another great injectable treatment option that offers the same amazing results in fixing your gummy smile is the Jeauvau Lip Flip.
This treatment works similar to the above Botox Lip Flip option where the injectable relaxes the upper lip muscle which ultimately helps lower the upper lip and cover the excess upper gumline.
Again, like Botox, the Jeauvau treatment option is not permanent, so you will need to schedule another appointment a few months after your last treatment session to see optimal results in fixing your gummy smile.
Gummy Smile Dysport Treatment
The third type of gummy smile injectable treatment option we offer that gives the same beautiful result as the two previous options above is the Dysport Lip Flip.
Similar to the other previous Botox and Jeauvau Lip Flip treatment options, the Dysport Lip Flip works by injecting the Dysport into the upper lip which relaxes the upper lip muscle to ultimately cover the excess upper gums that cause the look of a gummy smile.
Since Dysport, like the Botox and Jeauvau treatment methods, is a type of injectable, over time the product will dissolve. Therefore, this means you will have to come back in to get another Lip Flip for optimal results and to maintain the look of fixing your gummy smile.
