The perfect smile
Aesthetic or attractive smile can be determined according to several criteria:
The shape and size of your lips.
- Your face muscles.
The shape and size of your teeth.
- Your gum tissue.
The perfect smile line appearance should reveal the minimum amount of gum tissue that harmonizes with the upper lip.
Causes and types of gummy smile
The first type "periodontal laugh due to gum":
The nature of the teeth is that they consist of a crown and walls, and the crown is covered with a glass-like substance called "enamel", and sometimes the gums grow on the surface of the "enamel", cover a large part of the crown, and give the impression that the year is covered, and result in a "laugh." Gingival. "
The method for treating periodontal laugh is to "vaporize" the gums with a laser or an iron.
The second type "periodontal laugh due to muscle":
It is due to "hyperactivity of the upper lip muscle", where it is short due to the muscle being stretched up too much,
To treat this type, the muscle is weakened by injecting "Potoxis" every 6 months.
The third type: periodontal laugh due to protrusion of the upper jaw:
It is the most difficult through the emergence of the upper jaw, in which case we ask the patient to have CT scans, the jaw is reshaped, and then the lip begins to descend on the jaw and cover the teeth.

Lip Augmentation (Enlarging or inflating the lips)
By fillier injection or fat
With a local anesthetic cream and within half an hour
Hyaluronate (temporary): The most common types are Restylane, Tesolal, Dermafiller, Fioderm, and Gefoderm. And these materials are a generation made of hyaluronic acid and produced in an industrial way and do not need to test for sensitivity before injection and dissolve with time and continue for a period of nine months to a year and a half then you will need re-injection.
Fat (permanent): It is taken from your body and treated in special ways before it is injected into the lips. And because it is from the same body, it does not cause an allergy. But you need an operating room to perform it.
You can practice your normal life right after you do it.
There are permanent synthetic materials that are not recommended to be used for injection, such as hydroxyapatite, articol, and silicon, due to the high incidence of granular masses in the lips and the difficulty of removing them.
