WHAT DOES THE GUMMY SMILE CORRECTION TREATMENT OFFER ME?

If you have a low or uneven gum line, often described as a 'gummy smile', or if your gum line is uneven, then gum sculpting can transform even the gummiest of smiles and help create a smile you've always dreamed of.

 

By reshaping of the gum we can restore the natural proportions of your teeth. There are two procedures used to achieve this, simple soft tissue gum sculpting for subtle but effective improvement or surgical lifting of the gum for more severe cases.

We use gum contouring to remove excess gum to improve the look of uneven gum lines or gummy smiles. With this type of treatment, it really does depend on how much excess gum is showing as to which treatment would be most suitable for you.

If you are looking to just take away a millimetre or so of gum then the gum reshaping treatment is quick and easy and takes a matter of hours to heal. Any more than approximately two millimetres of gum would require a different treatment altogether - a surgical gum lift, and the healing time is much longer - usually three to four months. Gum sculpting is usually done in conjunction with veneers, as the gum is likely to just grow back down without them. What can sometimes happen is that when the gum is taken away the tooth underneath is also likely to be a bit more yellow in colour than the rest of your teeth too, so you need to be aware of that.

WHAT DOES THE PROCEDURE INVOLVE?

 

PRIOR TO THE TREATMENT

 

Firstly we will run a full medical consultation to confirm your suitability for this treatment. The doctor may examine your ability to move certain muscles to determine location, size and use of the muscles that cause the area of concern. The desired results will then be discussed and a treatment plan will be created

 

THE PROCEDURE

 

A small amount of Botulinum toxin will be injected at both sides of the junction of nostril and nose to mouth fold to weaken the muscles. Within the next 3-4 days, elevation of the upper lip will gradually become less and your new smile is transformed! You will be showing less gum and have much more confidence to smile without inhibition. The full result should be achieved 2 weeks after the treatment

 

POST-TREATMENT

 

Please do not touch, massage or apply cosmetics/creams to the area for at least 6 hours afterwards. This will reduce the risk of infection. All aftercare instructions will be discussed with you before the treatment by our Clinic Coordinator
