What is a Gummy Smile?

A gummy smile is a condition in which the upper lip lies higher than usual when smiling, exposing too much of the gums. This can be caused by a number of factors, such as genetics, an overactive lip muscle, a short upper lip, or an excess of gum tissue.

Although a gummy smile is not dangerous, it can be embarrassing and can make people feel self-conscious about their smile. Fortunately, there are treatment options available, including Botox.

How Does Botox Treat a Gummy Smile?

Botox is a neurotoxin that works by blocking the nerve signals that cause muscles to contract. When injected into the upper lip, it can help to relax the muscle, which prevents the lip from raising too high when smiling. This can help to reduce the amount of gum tissue that is exposed, resulting in a more balanced and aesthetically pleasing smile.

At ELLEMES Medical Spa of Atlanta, GA, we use a precise, targeted approach to inject Botox into the upper lip muscles. This helps to ensure that the right amount of Botox is used, resulting in the most effective and natural-looking results.

What are the Benefits of Using Botox to Treat a Gummy Smile?

Botox is a safe and effective treatment for a gummy smile, and it has many advantages over other treatment options. It is a minimally invasive procedure with no downtime, and it can be completed in just minutes. Results of Botox typically last three to four months, so you don’t have to worry about long-term commitment or maintenance.

Botox is also a cost-effective option. It is generally cheaper than other treatments, such as lip surgery or braces. It is also a non-surgical procedure, so there is no risk of scarring or discomfort.


If you are looking for an effective and safe treatment for a gummy smile, then Botox may be the right option for you. At ELLEMES Medical Spa of Atlanta, GA, our experienced team of practitioners can help you achieve the smile of your dreams. Contact us today to book your appointment!
