A Gummy Smile is a term used when the upper lip retracts too far up causing more gum to show when smiling.
Botox is a known treatment for a gummy smile where combination of injections near & below the nose relaxes the upper lip and stop the exposure of the gum.
In some cases the excess gum covering the upper teeth can be the cause of gummy smile. In such circumstances the excess gum can be removed to the correct smile line and massively improve the general smile. This is known as Gum contouring.
