Botulinum Toxin or Botox in Gummy Smile

By gummy smile we understand that when smiling a disproportionate amount of gum is exposed, it is one of the problems that negatively affect the aesthetics of the smile, an exposure greater than 3 mm of gingival tissue.

The treatment is generally performed with botulinum toxin or Botox and its objective is to naturally harmonize the elevation of the levator muscle of the upper lip.

It is a minimally invasive technique, and will be performed with a few small punctures at the base of the nose, which will depend on the length of the upper lip and the amount of exposed gum.

At AVANTwell Medical we have a team of professionals who require a special technique and specific training for this practice.
