The perfect Hollywood smile has been the pursuit of many for years, and in the age of the selfie, it is more sought after than ever.
Whilst some people’s insecurities lie in the dissatisfaction with their teeth, for some it is actually their gums causing the problem. Some people feel they show off too much gum when they smile, and this more widely recognised as a ‘gummy smile’.
As expected, corrective surgery for this problem area is an expensive and drastic course of action, involving the removal of gum tissue. However, there is a far cheaper and easier solution: anti-wrinkle injections for a Gummy Smile.
How does it work?
We all know of anti-wrinkle injections as being used to smooth out the skin and eliminate wrinkles, but anti-wrinkle injections for a Gummy Smile is a recently innovated treatment, designed to tackle the excessive showing of gums when smiling.
The procedure consists of anti-wrinkle treatments being injected into the muscles around the mouth causing them to relax, and consequently releasing the lip area about the protruding gum. There are 4 injection points at which the lip can be depressed. Gummy smile correction injections last around 4-6 months.
What are the benefits?
- The procedure is quick and simple taking as little as 30 minutes to complete
