When an excessive amount of upper gum become visible while smiling or laughing it is referred to as gummy smile. It is often a cause of embarrassment, anxiety and stress among the individuals who have such problem. It can cause withdrawn social behaviours such as avoiding smile, photographs, facing people etc.

The levator muscle in the upper lip is a cause of this problem which is treated with Botox.

Treatment options: first the levator muscle is identified and small doses of Botox are injected into the muscle instantly above and lateral to the nostrils. This Botox treatment helps in relaxing the muscle in the upper lip which gives it a lengthened appearance. This cause a reduction in the visibility of the gum while smiling. This treatment can also help in softening the nasolabial folds.
