Welcome to a world where your smile is a source of confidence, not concern. I'm Dr. Peter Boulden from Atlanta Dental Spa, and today we delve into how Botox is revolutionizing the approach to gummy smile reduction.
A gummy smile is more than just an aesthetic concern. It's a condition where more than three millimeters of gum tissue is visible when smiling, affecting more women than men. While not a health concern, it can impact self-esteem and how one interacts socially.
Botox, commonly known for its cosmetic uses, plays a pivotal role in smile transformation. By targeting the facial muscles responsible for lifting the upper lip, Botox reduces the elevation of the lip during smiling. This subtle yet significant change can drastically reduce the gummy appearance of a smile.
Botox is injected above the smile to temporarily denervate the muscles that cause the upper lip to excessively lift. Effective Botox treatment for a gummy smile requires an injection at the the intersection of these three muscles, a triangular area called the Yonsei Point.
Typical Botox treatment for a gummy smile includes injections at the Yonsei Point on either side of the nose and lasts for around 3 months.
The transformation is quick and nearly painless. With just a couple of injections, you can witness a remarkable change in your smile's appearance. Typically, the effect lasts about three months, requiring periodic touch-ups to maintain the desired look.
Achieving the ideal smile is a balance of teeth, gums, and lips. An optimal smile displays up to 3 mm of gum tissue, aligning the gum line with the upper lip's contour. Our goal at Atlanta Dental Spa is to bring you as close to this ideal as possible, using Botox as a tool to enhance your natural beauty.
