Reclaiming Your Smile with Confidence

A gummy smile can sometimes be a source of self-consciousness. When your smile reveals more of your gum line than you’d like, it might lead to reluctance to smile for photos or in social situations. Oracle Aesthetics Carlisle offers a simple and effective solution to help lower a high lip line and bring back your smile’s confidence. Our gummy smile treatment utilises small, carefully administered doses of anti-wrinkle injections (botox) to address the issue at its root.


The Gummy Smile Treatment

Our non-surgical gummy smile treatment involves injecting tiny amounts of anti-wrinkle treatment into the facial muscles around your mouth that pull your lip up when you smile. By doing this, we relax and temporarily weaken these muscles, preventing your lip from being pulled as high and revealing excess gum tissue.

What is a Gummy Smile?

A gummy smile can stem from various factors related to your teeth and gums. It can be a result of the size and shape of your teeth or a short and hyperactive upper lip. Regardless of the cause, Oracle Aesthetics Cumbria can help you regain your smile’s beauty and allow you to smile with confidence again.
