SMILE AND LIP AESTHETICS
Abnormal display of the gingival tissues impairs the facial aesthetic and leads to undesired look.
However, this condition, also called Gummy smile, can be managed with Botox injection to create a more aesthetical smile.
The relationship of the lips to the teeth, the upward displacement of the corners of lips, the volume of lips, and the look of lips relative to the teeth are important factors of a smile. Furthermore, Botox injection also help the ‘’smoker lines’’ – the horizontal lines on the lips – and creates a younger look in the lips. Botox injection does not affect volume of the lips.
In the lip aesthetics, filler and Botox treatments can be combined.
