A radiant smile without visible gums!
Do you suffer from a gummy smile or gum smile? In this process, not only your teeth but also your gums become visible while smiling. It is caused by the muscles that pull up the upper lip being too active, exposing the gums at the upper teeth too much. This condition is generally perceived as unattractive. Fortunately, today it can be remedied using Botulinum Toxin, with just two small injections. This is a less invasive solution than the invasive surgery on the upper jaw that used to be performed.
