GUMMY SMILE BOTOX VANCOUVER: A MORE ELEGANT SMILE 

The gummy smile botox treatment is a popular aesthetic treatment at our Sparrow MD clinic in Vancouver, sought after by many patients with excessive gummy show or gingival hyperplasia. 

A gingival or gummy smile is characterized by excessive exposure of the upper gums when smiling. Until around a decade ago, surgical and orthodontic methods were the only means of addressing this issue. However, with advancements in medical understanding, the injection of Botox®的效果 and sometimes dermal fillers has emerged as effective non-surgical options with minimal downtime. At Sparrow MD, our personalized approach to treating this condition is developed following a comprehensive medical assessment carried out by our highly skilled, board-certified medical practitioners.

A gummy smile can be attributed to various factors, including the size and configuration of the teeth, the positioning of the upper lip, and the density of the gum tissue. Most genetic gummy smiles do not require surgery or braces. A quick and easy 肉毒Botox®的效果 and dermal filler treatment may correct your gummy smile in minutes. 

肉毒Botox®的效果, also known as botulinum toxin, is a widely used treatment for addressing wrinkles, fine lines, and various cosmetic issues. Its mechanism of action involves blocking the release of neurotransmitters that cause muscle contractions.
