Gummy Smile

A gummy smile, sometimes referred to as excessive gingival display (EGD), involves an excess of gum tissue appearing when a person smiles. This condition makes many patients feel self-conscious about smiling in public and knock their confidence.


When you smile, your lips sweep upward and your eyes crinkle. Although a smile is usually considered the most beautiful human facial expression, for some people this is often affected by an aesthetic condition known as a gummy smile.

As the name suggests, this is when your smile reveals too much gum tissue above the top teeth. For this reason, it is also known as an excessive gingival display.

Fixing a Gummy Smile Without Surgery

Non-surgical gummy smile treatment options include Botox and dermal fillers injections.

Botox (Botulinum toxin) injections are the safest treatment to fix your gummy smile. This is also the less expensive and less intrusive gummy smile solution, which is now very popular among many patients all around the world.

Botox works by temporarily paralysing your elevator muscles. This means that, when you smile, they will not raise your upper lip dramatically.

Botox injections are a safe option to correct a gummy smile and a hyperactive upper lip, since they limit its range of movement, without any surgery involved.

Benefits of Botox for a Gummy Smile

There are many surgical options to address your gummy smile, depending on the causes. However, they can all be expensive, as well as invasive and the healing typically takes weeks.

These are the many benefits of treating a gummy smile with Botox:

- Botox injections only cause a little discomfort
- The recovery is immediate, and you can go home and return to your normal activities as soon as the procedure is finished.
- Botox results are natural and almost immediate.
- Botox injections are always tailored to your natural face shape and adjusted to give you only the best results.
