Gummy Smile

Are you self-conscious when you smile?

‘Gummy Smile’ refers to a condition where the top lip goes too far above the top teeth when they smile. This shows a large area of upper gums which can make the smile unattractive, causing self-consciousness. There are various causes of a Gummy Smile one of which is a hyperactive muscle which elevates the upper lip, a thin upper lip can also contribute to problem, exposing the upper gum even more.

Depending on the patient’s face, a couple of treatments could help to create a more natural and attractive smile shape

Botulinum toxin is an easy, non-surgical treatment that can be used to reduce the muscle activity which controls the top lip. This can be very effective.

Where the problem is related to a thin top lip, adding some subtle volume with lip fillers can address this imbalance, adding more substance to the lips and therefore preventing them from sliding so high above the teeth.

Walking into Symetrie you are greeted with a warm welcome, into a clean and well decorated reception area, with comfortable seating and drinks offered whilst waiting for your treatment. The treatment i had was with Tracy, I was made to feel at ease when Tracy spoke thoroughly about treatment. Step by step i was reassured and asked if i was ok and comfortable. After my treatment I was given very good after care advise to which I followed, post treatment everything was fine. My experience at Symetrie was 5 star, everything carried out with such professionalism from start to finish from all staff. I highly recommend Symetrie to all.
