    Injection protocol

    Gummy smile is mainly defined by an unbalanced activity of the levator muscles. The recommended treatment strategy is:

    • Administration system: Blunt microcannula (25G 50 mm).
    • Hyaluronic acid: CYNEFILL PRESTIGE DEEP 23 mg/ml.
    • Depth: Supramuscular /intramuscular
    • Total amount:

    A total of 0.2–0.4 ml of HA per side at the piriformis fossa.
    A total of 0.2 ml per side at the levator labii superioris alaeque nasi.
    A total of 0.1 ml per side at the anterior nasal spine.

    The injection is administered at approximately 5 mm of the corner of the mouth, by means a blunt microcannula (25G and 50 mm), with a fanning technique and looking, at the piriformis fossa, for a deep plane superficial to levator labii superioris. It is recommended, before to start the HA administration, that the patient gesticulates for determining the blunt shifting.

    Once the levator labii superioris muscle has been located, we proceed to inject a bolus of 0.2 to 0.4 mL of a crosslinked CYNEFILL PRESTIGE DEEP HA filler (23 mg/ml), with the goal of modulate the muscle activity. As a second step, the canula should be medially slide, looking for a parallel point, almost under the nasal wing insertion, which allows to limit the strength of contraction of the levator labii superioris alaeque nasi.

    At this point, approximately 0.1 ml of CYNEFILL HA filler should be injected. Finally, sliding the blunt microcannula to the nasal spine, but without touching it, 0.2 ml of 23 mg/ml HA filler needs to be placed on the depressor septi nasi muscle

    FAQ: Everything You Need to Know About Gummy Smile

    • What is gummy smile?

      A gummy smile, also known as “excessive gingival display,” is where too much gum tissue is visible above the top teeth when you smile or open your mouth. Ideally, you should not show more than three millimetres of gums between the top of your tooth and the bottom of your upper lip.

      • An overdeveloped frenulum (that reaches below the average line; covers your teeth much more than necessary);
      • Short teeth (that are covered by your gums)‍.
    • When gummy smile procedure is necessary?
      • When too much of one’s gums are showing when smiling;
      • When the tooth is short and small because the gum is covering a large portion of it;
      •  When the height of your gum is different (uneven gum line);
      •  When the gum caved in so much that the roots of your teeth are exposed, and your teeth look too long (gum line recession).

      Fillers to treat and reduce the excessive visibility of gums

      A beautiful smile is a jewelry for appearance. With the help of a smile we express emotions and also show our positive attitude towards a person. However, not everyone has a perfect smile and some people feel embarrassed and shy to express their emotions. One of these reasons is the gingival smile, which is present in 10-15% of people around the world.

      You can get rid of it by surgical method and non-surgical method. Most people prefer the second method, which involves correction using injections with fillers.

      Understanding and treating gummi smiles

      Smile gummi removal is possible in several ways. Let’s take a closer look at them.

      Orthodontic correction. In the presence of congenital anomalies, malocclusion, etc., correction is prescribed according to medical indications. Correction is achieved by placing eliners and braces.

      Surgical intervention. The most radical way to correct the problem. It is indicated for patients who have bony anomalies of the jaw or hyperplasia

      Gingival plasty. It involves the removal of excess gingival tissue. The procedure can be performed with the help of traditional surgery and with the use of a laser.

      Trimming the frenulum under the upper lip. After trimming, the upper lip becomes in the correct position and covers the gum.

      Reconstructive plastic surgery or maxillofacial surgeries. They are indicated when a bone deformity is diagnosed that occurred at birth or as a result of trauma. The surgery helps to form a correct jaw line and fix an improper bite.

      All these methods involve surgical intervention and in most cases the use of general anesthesia. After the procedure, reconstructive rehabilitation is required.

      Injections with hyaluronic acid fillers. The most popular technique and less expensive compared to the above methods. This method of gingival smile removal is chosen by patients due to the rapid obtaining of the desired result without surgical intervention. Also, no long recovery time is required after the procedure. Hyaluronic acid-based fillers are biodegradable, do not cause allergic reactions and are completely eliminated from the body after a certain period of time.

However, gummy smile can also become a medical problem. Patients with this defect have an increased risk of bleeding, gum inflammation, periodontitis and loosening of teeth.

      • malocclusion;
      • forward thrust of the upper incisors;
      • A decrease in the height of the upper row as a result of tooth erosion;
      • the upper lip may jump up due to the presence of hypertonus of the circular muscles of the mouth;
