BOTOX® Gum Lift

A gummy smile, medically termed excessive gingival display, occurs when an excessive amount of gum tissue is visible above the top teeth. This condition can result from various factors, including excess gum tissue that makes teeth appear shorter, naturally short or worn teeth, an overgrowth of the upper jaw known as vertical maxillary excess, or a hypermobile or hyperactive upper lip that lifts excessively when smiling, revealing more gum tissue. A Botox gum lift specifically addresses gummy smiles caused by hyperactive upper lip muscles, providing a minimally invasive solution to reduce excessive gingival display and enhance your smile's appearance.

Understanding the BOTOX® Gum Lift Procedure

At NYC Smile Design, we understand that a beautiful smile is framed by both your teeth and gums. If you feel self-conscious about excessive gum display when you smile, a BOTOX® gum lift can help. This procedure involves strategically injecting BOTOX® into the muscles that control your upper lip. By gently reducing the lip's excessive movement, the treatment minimizes gum exposure, enhancing the overall balance and appearance of your smile.

Why Choose BOTOX® for Your Gummy Smile?

BOTOX® offers a non-surgical solution to adjusting the contour of your smile by modulating the movement of your upper lip. This method is particularly appealing for several reasons:
