Dr Mark Hamilton Lip Flip

GUMMY SMILE also known as excessive gingival display is a smile that shows an excessive amount of gum under the upper lip. A Gummy Smile is caused by having strong lip muscles.

Dr. Mark can fix this by injecting toxin into the muscles that pull up your top lip. After a few days these muscles become weakened so your face does not pull up as strongly – thus allowing your top lip to cover over the gums above your teeth. Don’t worry – you can still smile and talk and laugh and KISS!

Gummy smile a very common complaint with men & women. They love their teeth but are still unhappy with their smile because too much of the gum shows.  This can be so easily corrected without having surgery.

Toxin injections are a recognised & popular treatment for reducing the appearance of a gummy smile. Dr. Mark Hamilton is a trained maxillo-facial surgeon. He only injects FDA approved botulinum toxins including prescription Botox by Allergan and Dysport by Ipsen to treat gummy smiles.

Gummy Smile Injections


Dr. Mark treats gummy smiles by injecting into the Levator Labii Superioris muscle of the upper lip to give the perfect smile. This relaxes these muscles which in turn allows the lips to give more cover to the upper gum when you smile. It works by reducing movement in the upper lip, preventing it from retracting & showing a large amount of gum when smiling.


The procedure takes approximately 20 minutes. The treatment takes 2 weeks to reach peak effect & can last several months.

Although it needs to be maintained on a regular basis, our patients are very

happy as it is non-invasive and has no down time. This procedure gives patients a huge confidence boost as they can show their teeth in photographs and smile with a “Big Cheesy Grin! “ Results take 2 weeks for max effect

Gummy smile

Dr. Hamilton occasionally recommends Lip Filler Injections in addition to toxin injections to help reduce an overly-gummy looking smile. He likes to use a 0.5 ml syringe of Juvederm SMILE by Allergan. This amount of lip filler will give a very subtle volume to your top lip while also helping to cover the upper gum. They can also reduce fine lines above the lips. A tiny amount of filler is also injected into the bottom lip to add balance to your smile.
