Reducing the ‘gumminess’ of smiles can be done in two different ways. One would be through the use of Botulinum Toxin (commonly known as Botox)/ muscle relaxant injections.
Laura, one of our senior dental nurses had this treatment on her upper lip. The muscles relaxant is injected into area between the upper lip and the nose and reduces the movement of muscle. This prevent the top lip rising as much and prevents a large amount of gum being visible when smiling.
