Every woman in any circumstance strives to look beautiful. And often it is a smile that gives charm to a face. But what if, when smiling or laughing, the upper lip rises high enough, exposing the gum? In such a situation, one can try to hold the upper lip by force of will, but this does not always work out, and the smile becomes asymmetrical and unnatural. Smiling is an important non-verbal communication method. It expresses emotions and speaks of his disposition and friendliness. It not only reflects feelings but is also an important aspect of socialization. By the nature of the smile, you can understand the mood of the interlocutor. Ideally, the gum should not show much when smiling. Botox for Gummy Smile in Dubai, Abu Dhabi & Sharjah can help resolve these issues.
What is a Gummy Smile?
Gummy Smile is an aesthetic defect that is characterized by a very high position of the upper lip in relation to the gum when smiling when the pink gum above the upper teeth is noticeably exposed. Normally, the gingival exposure when smiling should be 2-3 mm. However, in 15% of people, the gingival margin is exposed much more.
This affects the aesthetic and psychological status, reduces a person’s self-confidence, and contributes to the formation of an inferiority complex.
What are the Advantages?
There are several effective methods to fix this problem:
- Non-Surgical Intervention: The most complex, expensive of all correction methods. Has a long recovery period. The process is dangerous, and irreversible, and requires additional installation of veneers.
- Speech Therapy: The gums rise due to the increased tone of the muscles surrounding the mouth. With the help of special exercises, the speech therapist teaches the patient to control the movement of the upper lip. The process is long, the patient will have to control himself all the time.
Botox injections are the simplest, most effective, and safest option. The main thing is to follow the recommendations of a cosmetologist.

How Does it Work?
Botox injection is considered a very effective invasive way to correct a Gummy smile. It is recommended for patients whose gingival smile is mainly caused by overactive lip muscles. Intramuscular injection of botulinum toxin acts on the neuromuscular transmission and relaxes the hyperactivity of the muscles of the upper lip, which ceases to rise strongly and exposes the gum. This leads to the desired smile change.
The main advantage of this method in comparison with surgical ones is painlessness, simplicity, and speed of correction, the procedure is performed with just a few injections and lasts no more than 20 minutes and low cost for the procedure.
How is the Procedure Carried Out?
Botox is a neurotoxin derived from Clostridium botulinum, an anaerobic bacterium.
It is enough to make injections into the fold above the upper lip in order to immobilize a too-active muscle for several months and block the passage of nerve impulses in this area. Traditional schemes for the correction of a gingival smile include injections into the muscle that raises the upper lip and the wing of the nose.
After the injection of the drug, the upper lip remains motionless during a smile, does not rise, and the gum is not exposed. The first effect appears on the 3rd day after the injection, and the effect lasts 4-6 months after the procedure.
The advantages of this technique are its simplicity and painlessness.
How Does the Recovery Period Go?
After the correction of the gingival smile, the patient must comply with certain restrictions:
- 3-day refusal to drink alcohol
- 3-day rest from sunbathing and solarium
- In the first three days, it is not recommended to smile widely and a lot
- During the week it is forbidden to visit the pool, bath, and sauna
- 2-week ban on taking antibiotics and tranquilizers.
