Why do some people show more of their gums when they smile more than others?
The most common reasons for a gummy smile, known in medical terms as excessive gingival display, are having a short upper lip, a hypermobile lip and wear on front teeth.
The condition seems to be more common in women than men. You might think braces gave you a gummy smile, or have just always had one, no matter how, you don’t like smiling because of it.
When you smile you lip elevates too far above their upper teeth exposing gums and creating an ‘unattractive’ smile. If you would like gummy smile correction, you’re in the right place here at AL Aesthetics.
Dr. Ash Labib knows how to hide the gums using the Botox technique.
Through simply and effectively injecting Botox into both sides of the nostril and nose to mouth fold, it will weaken the muscle causing it to be in a relaxed state.
Botulinum toxin works by temporarily paralyse the elevator muscles, so that they will not raise your upper lip dramatically whenever you smile.
We might need to also inject lip fillers as well as Botox to ensure your smile is symmetrical.
Across many years, Dr. Ash Labib has built back the confidence of hundreds of women and men across the UK and world-wide, through our Botox injections for gummy smiles

Ash Labib thinks that Botox is best used in facial expression areas such as the frown lines, forehead lines, and ‘11s’ between the eyebrows. However, we will use fillers in conjunction depending on the case.
After cleansing, you’ll receive a number of small injections into your nose, lip and nostils.
You may think it will hurt a tiny bit, but we do administer a topical anaesthetic to minimise discomfort. Also, being a delicate area, do expect a pinching sensation.
To preserve positive results, you need to return regularly after approximately 3 to 6 months.
Within two weeks after, we will invite you back for a check-up, just to make sure you’re comfortable, are having no problems and the treatment has worked.As well as this, before gummy smile treatment we ask you to come for an extensive, free consultation so that we can assess your gummy smile and plan the treatment next steps if you would like to go ahead.
