BOTOX® Gum Lift

A gummy smile usually means you have extra, bulky gum tissue. You may feel like this excess tissue detracts from the appearance of your smile. Your teeth may appear too short or too small in proportion to your gum line. Experienced cosmetic dentist Dr. Elisa Mello can administer BOTOX® injections to lessen the appearance of a gummy smile. Please call NYC Smile Design at 212-452-3344 or visit our website to schedule a consultation with Dr. Mello.

BOTOX® for a Gorgeous, Appealing Smile

BOTOX® injections prevent your upper lip from rising too high, which exposes the excess gum tissue above the upper row of your teeth. Your smile will still look natural and attractive, but it won’t reveal more than is aesthetically pleasing.

Dr. Mello and Dr. Tabib also perform laser re-contouring of gummy smiles, which, like BOTOX®, has the benefit of being minimally invasive and requiring little to no recovery afterward. BOTOX® is completely non-surgical and may be a great fit for your expectations of cost and appointment time. When you visit our practice for an individualized consultation, we’ll discuss both options with you, plus any other treatments that may be a good fit for achieving the goals you have for your smile.
