Botox (botox injection) for Gummy Smile
In an ‘ideal smile’ individual should show the upper lip drape over the top of the teeth, with only two millimeters of gum showing. Anything over three to four millimeters of gum showing starts to look gummy. This gummy problem has a name in cosmetic community known as,” Gummy Smile”. People who are embarrassed by their large, visible gums are now turning to Botox for that ‘ideal’ Hollywood smile. Today, increasing number of dentists are injecting Botox into patients’ upper lip muscles, to decrease the amount of gum shown and prevent the so-called ‘gummy smile’.
