Gummy Smile Treatment
What is Gummy Smile Treatment?
Gummy smile is a condition when abnormal eruption of the teeth causes an excessive display of gum tissue in the upper jaw. In other cases, the hyperactive muscle movement of the upper lip causes it to move higher than normal.
Aside from orthodontics treatment, this condition can also be corrected through injectable muscle relaxants. This muscle relaxant helps in reducing the elevation of upper lip. The procedure takes a small amount of time with minimal discomfort.
Usually it will take 3-5 days before you notice any changes to your smile, however for some people it may take longer, around 2 weeks. You can expect results to last 3-4 months on average.
