Gummy Smile Correction

Gummy Smile Correction – Carlisle, Cumbria, UK

When some people smile, their upper lip elevates too far above their upper teeth, exposing gums and producing an unattractive ‘Gummy Smile’. This gummy display occurs for a wide variety of reasons. Unfortunately, genetics are mostly to blame for a thicker gum line since it’s caused by a short upper lip, small teeth or excessive gum tissue, all of which are passed down to you from your parents in your genetic makeup.

Another cause is hyperactive muscle which elevates the upper lip. Furthermore, the gummy smile may be contributed by a thin upper lip.

If you are self-conscious about your gummy smile, you will be happy to know that there are treatments available to address the problem.  And, if you don’t want to go down the surgical route, you may be happy to know that a simple and effective way to reduce the activity of the muscle that elevates the upper lip is available.

At Rippon Medical Services, international aesthetic, expert masterclass trained, Doctor Adrian Rippon can utilize a non-surgical approach by injecting small amounts of Botox into the hyperactive muscle of the upper lip. This simple procedure will weaken the hyperactive muscles and reduce the elevation of the upper lip, thereby reducing the gummy smile. If a thin upper lip is also a contributing factor, Doctor Rippon would also carry out upper lip augmentation.
