Gummy Smile Lift
A gummy smile is a condition where the smile tends to look less interesting because of too much of gum visible. Ideally about 2mm of gums should be visible for the smile to look beautiful. A gummy smile may sometimes be caused by patient's upper lip raising too high when he/she smiles exposing more of gums. Botox or botulinum toxin can be used to transform such gummy smiles. The toxin when injected to upper lip ensures that the lip does not rise as high as it normally does. This is done by reducing the movement of muscles in the upper lips. The procedure is perfectly safe and the results are excellent.
