Gummy smile injections Melbourne
Gummy smile injections reduce visible gum show when smiling and laughing. Available at Cosmetic Connection Melbourne, the treatment works by relaxing the muscles that lift the upper lip. Treating a gummy smile can improve the appearance of your smile.
How it works
Do you show too much gum when you smile and laugh? Gummy smile injections are a safe and effective treatment to reduce visible gum show.

For a more severe gummy smile, we may recommend combining gummy smile injections with other treatments such as a lip flip or lip filler as a part of a comprehensive smile enhancement treatment.
