A gummy smile is a term that describes when your upper teeth are visible when you smile.
There are many causes of a gummy smile. This can be due to anything from genetics, to accidents or orthodontics.
Most of the time, a gummy smile is caused by teeth that are too small or misaligned. It can also be caused by a loss of facial volume due to ageing
At Love Skin and Hair, our clinicians use a series of micro injections of botulinum toxin, a naturally purified protein that works as a muscle relaxant to weaken contracting facial muscles. In this solution, it blocks the chemical signal from the nerves that’s responsible for elevating the upper lip to produce a less gummy smile.
If you are looking for natural looking facial aesthetics, I highly recommend seeing Oyin at Love Skin And Hair clinic. She gave me that oomph I desired. I notice friends and family doing double takes, wondering if their memory is faulty or if I did in fact get some work done.
