Botox For Gummy Smiles Sculpts: A Confident Grin Naturally

Is your smile feeling a little less “Hollywood” and a little more “gum drop”? Don’t fret! Many people deal with a gummy smile, where the upper lip retracts too much, revealing more gum tissue than desired. But worry not, Glow Theory has the secret weapon to a confident, picture-perfect smile: Botox for gummy smiles.

What is Botox and how does it work for gummy smiles?

Botox is a purified protein that temporarily relaxes muscles. In the case of gummy smiles, it’s injected into the upper lip muscles, specifically the levator labii superioris. This gentle relaxation prevents the lip from retracting as much when you smile, minimizing gum exposure and creating a more balanced, natural-looking grin.

Benefits of Botox for Gummy Smiles:

  • Minimal downtime: No surgery or incisions, meaning you can get back to your day quickly.
  • Natural-looking results: Forget the “frozen face” look. Botox simply takes the edge off your upper lip movement, preserving your natural expressions.
  • Long-lasting effects: Enjoy your new smile for 3-6 months, with touch-up appointments as needed.
  • Safe and effective: Millions have successfully used Botox for cosmetic and therapeutic purposes.
  • Minimal discomfort: The injections are quick and relatively painless, with topical numbing available for extra comfort.
