Sometimes the natural beauty of a person’s teeth is covered by excessive gum tissue, creating what we call a “gummy smile.” If this is the case for you, our cosmetic dentist duo and team can help! Dr. Patricia Breen and Dr. Elyse Patrella offer treatments to improve the appearance of your teeth and gums and give you a more aesthetic and balanced smile.

How to Improve a Gummy Smile?

One of the options our cosmetic dentist may recommend for improving a gummy smile is a BOTOX® treatment. BOTOX treatments involve injecting a special medication into carefully selected areas. This medication then works to “freeze” the muscles that pull up your lips. This offers a nearly instantaneous result for your smile, without the discomfort that you may experience with other procedures.

Understanding Crown Lengthening

Alternatives to this type of BOTOX therapy include crown lengthening, which involves trimming down the gum tissue to expose more of the tooth’s surface, and jaw surgery in more extreme cases. Our caring cosmetic dentist and team will discuss your options with you to determine if BOTOX is the right option for you.
