Gummy smiles occur when some people smile and their upper lip raises too far up above their upper teeth, exposing their gums resulting in an unattractive smile. This can happen due to several causes. One of the causes is the muscle that controls the movement of your upper lip could be hyperactive, causing the upper lip to rise up higher than normal. When this happens, more of your gum tissue is exposed when you smile.
Occasionally, the gummy smile is also aggravated by a thin upper lip that further contributes to the problem by exposing the upper gum even more. Fortunately, gummy smiles can be simply and effectively correct by Botulinum toxin. The Botulinum toxin works by reducing the activity of the muscle that elevates the upper lip.
