What is a gummy smile?

A gummy smile, known as excessive gingival display, can be the result of extremely strong upper lip muscles. These muscles pull the lip upward when smiling, resulting in a lot of gum showing.

By injecting neuromodulators or botulinum toxin injections into the upper lip muscles, the muscles are weakened causing the muscles to work less and prevent the upper lip from over-raising.
