Nguyen, provides Botox for treatment of gummy smile to patients in Houston, Katy, Spring, The Woodlands, Texas, and surrounding locations.
What is Gummy Smile?
A gummy smile is a condition where the upper lip is raised too high when smiling or laughing, revealing more of the gum tissue than normal. It is also known as excessive gingival display. It can be caused by a number of factors, such as an abnormally short upper lip, an abnormal upper jawbone, or an overgrowth of the gum tissue.
Whatever the cause, it can be an embarrassing problem that can be difficult to hide. However, with the help of Botox, you can reduce the appearance of a gummy smile and feel more confident when smiling.
Botox Treatment For Gummy Smile
Botox is a popular treatment for wrinkles, but it can also be used to reduce the appearance of a gummy smile. It works by temporarily paralyzing the muscles that cause your upper lip to lift too high when you smile. This prevents the upper lip from lifting too high, which helps to reduce the appearance of the gummy smile.
The Botox procedure is relatively simple and quick. First, the doctor will use a topical anesthetic to numb the area around your mouth. Then, they will use a very fine needle to inject a small amount of Botox into the muscles around your upper lip. The entire procedure typically takes about 15 minutes and there is minimal discomfort.
The results of Botox for a gummy smile are usually seen within a few days. The effects can last for several months, and you can maintain the results with regular Botox treatments.
The results of Botox vary from person to person, but most people experience a noticeable reduction in the appearance of their gummy smile. It is important to note that Botox is not a permanent solution, and you may need to have regular treatments to maintain the desired results. Board-certified dermatologist Dr. Tri H.
