Gummy Smile Correction
What is a Gummy Smile?
A “Gummy Smile” is a smile that shows excessive upper gums when smiling making your smile less appealing even if you have beautiful upper teeth. An esthetically pleasing smile is when a person shows very minimal amount of gum. Gummy smile can be fixed surgically, which is a very invasive procedure by cutting bone and gum around your teeth. Dr. Salmeron uses non-surgical ways to improve the appearance of your “gummy smile” with use of Botox and Dermal fillers. The way it works is that Botox will reduce the mobility of hyperactive upper lip muscles and dermal fillers will make the lip plumpier and fuller therefore less gum will be showing.
