Thank you for your question. Botox is great temporary option to treat a gummy smile. Botox can be injected into each levator labii superioris alaeque nasi muscle on either side of the nose to help treat your gummy smile. This typically takes 3-6 units of Botox. Having Botox is much less invasive than surgery. I recommend having a consultation with an expert injector to determine the best treatment plan for you. Best of Luck!
Thank you for submitting your question and photos. Botox would be safest and quickest option that can dramatically improve the gummy smile. Consult with a board certified plastic surgeon. Best Wishes
Botox is probably the safest and most predictable way to modify your gummy smile. In skilled hands, the injections can precisely modulate the way your upper lip muscles move, improving the appearance of your smile. The fact that it is temporary is both a good and bad thing - less than ideal treatments can be fine tuned easily without permanent smile distortion.
Botox for gummy smile is quick, easy and has minimal to no side effects. It's inexpensive and temporary.
Botox can be used to improve facial asymmetry. I suggest seeking a board certified dermatologist with experience when using Botox for treatment of a gummy smile. Best, Dr. Emer.
Like others here, I would recommend you undergo Botox injections as a first choice. It is a relatively quick, office-based procedure with little downside that can potentially give you a nice overall improvement in terms of the excess, gummy smile.
I would go the Botox route as it is temporary, so there is not risk. It is also easy. Ultimately you would need jaw surgery which is a lot to go through for a gummy smile.
You could consider trying Botox first. This is much less invasive than surgery. Usually only a small amount of Botox is needed for treatment of gummy smile. However, the results are temporary and need to be repeated every few months. It might make sense to try Botox first before thinking about surgery. Regards,Dr. Ort
Botox is a great but temporary treatment option for gummy smile. A low dose (3-6 units total) of Botox injected into each levator labii superioris alaeque nasi muscle on either side of the nose is all it takes to treat gummy smile. I cannot speak to the surgical options. I would discuss your case with an experienced injector as well as your dentist.
Your options are Botox or surgery and it depends on what you are willing to put up with and the cost. Botox would be a great temporary fix without the down time and cost of surgery but be sure you see a board certified dermatologist or plastic surgeon
