Botox for the Gummy Smile Edmonton

A gummy smile occurs when too much of the gums are visible when a person smiles. This can make the smile look unnatural and affect a person’s self-confidence. For many, this might become a source of self-consciousness, leading them to search for effective solutions.

Among the array of cosmetic treatments available, Botox stands out as a preferred choice for many. It has gained immense popularity for not only addressing wrinkles but also for its effectiveness.

“Botox has emerged as a minimally invasive and highly effective solution for patients seeking treatment for a gummy smile. When administered correctly, Botox targets the muscles responsible for the elevation of the upper lip, thereby reducing excessive gum visibility.”

What is Botox?

Botox is a neurotoxin that is used to treat a variety of cosmetic concerns, including wrinkles and fine lines. The treatment works by temporarily relaxing the muscles that cause wrinkles and fine lines. In the case of a gummy smile, Botox can be used to relax the muscle that controls the upper lip, which can help reduce the appearance of a gummy smile.

How Does Botox Help with a Gummy Smile?

A gummy smile occurs when the upper lip rises too high when a person smiles, exposing too much of the gums. Botox works by relaxing the muscle that controls the upper lip, which helps to reduce the amount of gum that is visible when a person smiles. The treatment works by temporarily relaxing the muscle, which helps to reduce the appearance of a gummy smile and create a more natural-looking smile.

Which muscle do we Target and why?

The muscle that is targeted in Botox treatment for a gummy smile is the levator labii superioris alaeque nasi (LLSAN) muscle. This muscle is responsible for controlling the movement of the upper lip and is the muscle that causes the gummy smile when it contracts too strongly.

By targeting the muscle with Botox injections, the muscle’s contractions can be temporarily relaxed, which helps to reduce the amount of gum that is visible when a person smiles. This creates a more natural-looking smile and reduces the appearance of a gummy smile.

The reason for targeting the LLSAN muscle specifically is because it is the muscle that is responsible for the excessive upward movement of the upper lip in a gummy smile. By relaxing this muscle, the upward movement of the upper lip can be reduced, which helps to reduce the appearance of the gums and create a more natural-looking smile.

What to Expect from Botox for a Gummy Smile

Botox for a gummy smile is a quick and easy procedure that takes only a few minutes to complete. Your provider will numb the area around the gums with a local anesthetic, and then use a fine needle to inject Botox into the muscle that controls the upper lip. After the treatment, you may experience some swelling and redness, but these side effects are usually mild and go away within a few days.
