About the Treatment
- How is this treatment performed?
The first step in this process might just be the most important. At your consultation visit we will discuss your goals for your smile and how we can help you attain them. In order to inject the product properly, we need to make sure we are injecting it into the correct muscle. To ensure this, we will ask you to smile so that the muscles become more prominent. Small amounts of the product are then injected into both sides of your face. The process is easy, safe, and relatively painless. You may return to your daily activity right away.
- What are the benefits of this procedure?
Correcting a gummy smile calms a hyperactive upper lip muscle, improving your smile’s gum-to-tooth ratio and appearance. With this simple procedure, you can feel more confident about your smile.
- Is this type of treatment safe?
Yes, our experienced team of physicians and care providers are here to make sure everything goes smoothly. We will work with you to design a custom treatment plan that will safely and effectively improve your under-eye hollows, dark circles, and tear troughs. All of our treatments have been tested to ensure the safety of our patients.
- Are the results permanent?
No. These products have a lifespan of between three to four months before requiring maintenance treatments to see continued results.
The gummy smile treatment is a quick procedure, taking between five to ten minutes, and requires no downtime afterwards. You can continue on with your regular activities following treatment.
During a consultation to correct a gummy smile, Dr. Pirani will spend approximately 30 minutes discussing the treatment, after which he will create a custom treatment plan that addresses all of your concerns and goals. He will go over risks and possible complications and give you an idea of what you should expect in terms of results.
