Gummy Smile in Livingston New Jersey
LINE ERASER MD’s | Livingston NJ – Beaming Smile
Focus Area: Gummy Smile
Our smile communicates feelings that words alone cannot express. Smiles have been shown to impact overall health, predict future relationship success, create positive emotional states, and convey confidence. However, if you tend to curl your upper lip under or raise it high above your teeth when you smile, you may be reluctant to smile or even self-conscious about it. We can improve the appearance of a “gummy smile” through a quick and affordable Botox treatment.
Through precise injection of neuromodulator, muscles in the upper lip relax and will limit the rise of the upper lip when smiling. The outcome is gums which remain covered and a more natural-looking smile.
One may return to work immediately after treatment, and results are often almost immediate with the full effect occurring by two weeks.
Results typically last 2-4 months; we have found that when we repeat this procedure, over time, generally we get more time between when treatment is required.
Our treatment goal of injectable neurotoxin use is to highlight your features, not stop complete movement in the face. Dr. Eisenstat in Livingston, New Jersey, will review your skin concerns, facial anatomy, and appearance goals and make recommendations that will best enhance your own natural beauty.
A gummy smile can be easily treated with a precise injection of neuromodulator in the upper muscles of the lip. As a non-invasive and non-surgical treatment, gummy smile procedures relax the upper lip muscles and prevent the top lip from rising above the gums. The result is a more fixated and even smile that looks and feels natural.
There several benefits of doing a gummy smile procedure, such as:
- Minimally invasive treatment with little to no discomfort;
- A quick recovery right after the treatment is complete;
- A cost-effective and nonsurgical solution;
- Natural and balanced smile without a show of gums;
- Adjustable treatment based on the patient’s individual needs.
As an effective treatment, you can expect first treatment results in 2 to 3 days after completing the procedure. Full results will be visible within 14 days, post-procedure. A dental appointment might be needed following the treatment, usually after 2 to 3 weeks.
Following your Botox gummy smile treatment, you might experience some redness in the areas or notice small injection marks which will fade in a few days. The procedure takes up to 72 hours to work, and up to 2 weeks to produce full effects. A few treatment side effects might occur, including bruising, swelling, or skin irritation. Should these proceed, contact your doctor for a further check-up.
