  • Suitability for treatment is important, as is selecting an experienced clinician

What Is A Gummy Smile?

A Gummy Smile is one where the upper lip lifts and exposes the gum underneath. It’s a smile that can leave those affected feeling self-conscious when they should be happy and relaxed.

How Is A Gummy Smile Treated?

A Gummy Smile can be treated with several small injections of Anti Wrinkle Muscle Relaxant into the offending muscles, most commonly on either side of your nose. This reduces the amount of gum you expose when you smile by reducing the muscle pull lifting your top lip.

Before Gummy Smile treatment your clinician needs to assess your suitability. Candidates who are ‘long’ from the nose to the mouth can look even longer after treatment, resulting in a ‘horsey’ appearance. Treatment should never detract from your attractiveness, so be sure to choose an experienced injector who understands smile patterns and can help you decide whether to proceed.

What Is Involved With Gummy Smile Treatments With Dr. Jodie In Melbourne?

Most Gummy Smiles can be treated without invasive dental surgery. If you are a suitable candidate, Dr. Jodie will place Anti Wrinkle Muscle Relaxant injections typically on either side of your nose into the muscle that elevates your top lip. Occasionally, other facial muscles need to be addressed as well. This will decrease the height of your lip and reduce the amount of gum showing when you smile. In conjunction with Anti Wrinkle treatments, Dr. Jodie can also use Dermal Filler injections to improve the shape and fullness of your top lip to minimise gum show with facial expression and enhance your smile even more.

With Anti Wrinkle injections, Dr. Jodie will thoroughly clean the treatment area prior to injecting and use ice for numbing to ensure you are comfortable throughout. She will administer the Anti Wrinkle Muscle Relaxant with a fine needle that is relatively painless. Gummy Smile treatments with Dr. Jodie have no down time, so you can leave her Melbourne clinic and get back into your daily routine immediately.

Melbourne Gummy Smile Treatments That Are Natural Looking

Dr. Jodie’s Gummy Smile treatment can turn your gummy smile into a natural and beautiful smile. When it comes to Gummy Smile treatments, it is important to select an experienced clinician who understands the anatomy of your smile well. If the offending muscle is over treated or the incorrect muscle is injected with Anti Wrinkle Muscle Relaxant, it can lead to an unnatural look, overly elongate your top lip, and in some cases can make it hard to smile or even eat or speak. Dr. Jodie’s holistic approach to Gummy Smile treatments is to improve your smile while keeping you looking just like you. The result is always subtle yet significant and always natural in appearance.
