Gummy Smile Port Macquarie
A gummy smile is surprisingly easy to correct with muscle relaxants at TL Dental in Port Macquarie.
Some patients who see us highlight that they are not pleased with their "gummy smile" feeling they show too much gum when they smile making them self-conscious. When creating a smile, we strive to design a smile line that shows the minimal amount of gum, generally 2mm, and follows the contours of the teeth. When too much pink shows, it creates an imbalance in the proportions of a beautiful smile. Today there are many ways to correct a 'gummy smile' depending on what is causing too much gum display. During a consultation, we can assess the cause of your gummy smile and recommend options.
Correcting a gummy smile with muscle relaxants
We can achieve significant improvement in the amount of gum display by carefully injecting the lip area with a muscle relaxant. This muscle relaxant reduces the force of the muscle controlling the upper lip when you smile so it will not lift as high. Muscle relaxants last 3-4 months, so they are not permanent.
Combination options for a gummy smile
Gummy smile treatment is dependent on the cause of the gum show. Sometimes a combination of treatments may be needed to correct excessive gum display.
The decision to treat gummy smile is a more of a personal one and depends on how self-conscious it makes you feel. Many people find that muscle relaxants are an effective way to manage their gummy smile conservatively.
