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.

AL Aesthetics 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.

How it Works
Our Botox for gummy smile treatment works by carefully injecting the solution into specific facial muscles, which interrupts the nerve signalling responsible for muscle contraction.
By carefully and precisely targeting these muscles, our skilled medical professionals temporarily weaken their contractions, reducing the upward pull on the lip and resulting in a more balanced and aesthetically pleasing smile that shows less gum exposure.
