Gummy smile

Laughter makes you beautiful. Do you find your gummy smile annoying? We can help you!

Laughter makes you beautiful. But sometimes your smile can make you feel insecure, and you try to hide your smile. If a lot of gums are visible when smiling, this is also called a gummy smile . Fortunately, we can remedy this quickly and relatively easily with a simple injectable treatment.


Our upper lip is pulled up by certain muscles when we laugh. When we talk about a gummy smile, also called a gum smile, then this muscle pulls the upper lip so far that a lot of gums are visible. If you find this too much visible gums, it can make you feel insecure and you can feel limited in your actions.


Did you know that a gummy smile is almost always innate? So it is not something that you develop over the years. It also means that you cannot ‘unlearn’ it or fix it yourself. So you can walk around for years with a feeling of insecurity, while the injectable treatment for a gummy smile can easily give you very natural results.


The injectable we use has a muscle relaxing effect. In the case of a gummy smile , this ensures that the muscles that pull the upper lip too far when laughing, actually relax more. Of course you keep a beautiful smile, only with less visible gums.


Do you want to smile again without feeling insecure or shame? Make an appointment for a personal consultation. Our doctors are happy to give you honest and no-obligation advice.

Frequently asked questions

Specific wrinkles, such as the frown lines, forehead lines, or crow’s feet, can be reduced by relaxing the muscle that causes them. This is done with the help of an injectable neuromodulator (BTX). It blocks certain signals in the muscle so that it cannot contract and relaxes, helping to smooth lines and wrinkles.


The toxin treats wrinkles created by repeated muscle movements. That makes the treatment very suitable from the mid-20s to the early 30s, and you want to work preventively on wrinkles that develop later.

Although it is a very popular treatment, there is a fear among some that it is a harmful substance with a high risk of permanent damage. However, there have been numerous clinical studies that prove time and again that this injectable is considered very safe with minimal risks and side effects.


Nevertheless, with any injectable treatment it is important to find a qualified doctor with specialist and proven experience. This is because if not injected skillfully, it can inadvertently spread to other areas, leading to muscle relaxation in the wrong place.


At the other extreme, injecting too much or too often can lead to a frozen can.


Fortunately, in either case, the results are never permanent and will gradually disappear over three to four months.

The treatment always starts with a consultation, in which it is extensively discussed what bothers you and what you want to achieve. We look at your medical background and decide what suits you best in terms of treatment. We take photos so that we have a good idea of before and after the treatment.


Your face will then be cleaned and the doctor will prick the areas to be treated. It is a fairly smooth treatment that usually takes between 5 and 10 minutes.


There may be some red spots, but generally you are presentable immediately after the treatment.

Try not to lie down for the first 90 minutes. There is then a small risk of spreading. However, this hardly occurs. After an hour and a half, the injectable is bound to the muscle and lying down is no longer harmful.


Don’t exercise for 24 hours: Exercise increases circulation in the body, including the face, causing your face to blush and turn red when you exercise. This increased circulation is great for your skin, but it increases the likelihood that some or all of the injectable will leave the area via sweat before it is fully absorbed by the neuromuscular junction.


Four hours of no pressure on the areas that have been treated: this includes wearing tight hats or caps or icepacks that press against the skin. Again, we run the risk that the injectable will spread and work in an area where we do not want it to. You can wash your face that same evening, but we recommend waiting a day with hard scrub products.

Because the injectable must bind to receptors to relax the muscles, the effects are not immediately noticeable.


Because the injectable must bind to receptors to relax the muscles, the effects are not immediately noticeable.


Fine lines and wrinkles continue to improve when the muscles are in a relaxed state and the wrinkles cannot form. This keeps improving as you repeat the injectable.


That said, every person is different. Since your body keeps making new receptors and neurotransmitters, the person will differ for how long the relaxing effect lasts. On average we see that the effects of the treatment last between 3 and 4 months.
