GUMMY SMILE
Your smile is your trademark – key to how you connect and show your beauty to the world. For patients with a typical “gummy smile” where the upper lip reveals a large portion of gum beneath it, self-consciousness and “no-tooth” smiles are normal.
At Face by Alex Pike  we’re passionate about giving you a smile you can be confident sharing. Our gummy smile treatments will subtly relax the top lip, offering extra coverage for your gums and a more beautiful, natural smile silhouette.

This is a relatively simple procedure, taking around 10 minutes, is low pain and has downtime.
On average, people can expect results to last from 3-6 months.
