Is Botox an Efficient Treatment for Gummy Smile?
I have what is called an excessive gingival display and have realized it's time I finally address this issue and do something about it. From what I understand, a botulinum toxin injection should be enough to correct my smile. But how efficient is this treatment? Does it work right away?
It takes about 4-5 days to work and may improve the amount of gingiva that is showing when you smile. However, you will have a weakness to your upper lip that may be bothersome. Unfortunately, you will likely have to try it to see if it works and see if you are OK with the weakness. I strongly recommend going to someone who has a lot of experience with this. Good luck!
