About Gummy Smile Treatment

A gummy smile is a term used to describe a smile that shows an excessive amount of gum tissue when a person smiles.

Treatment for a “gummy smile” is a simple, non-surgical cosmetic procedure that involves injecting botulinum toxin into the upper lip to relax muscles where the upper gums are prominently displayed when smiling.

We’re privileged that patients travel from around the South Wales Gwent area, including Merthyr, Cwmbran and Abergavenny.

Thank you to Clare the hygienist at Bethcar Dental practice for your amazing care today. Not only did Clare do an amazing job with my teeth (scrape and polish), she also provided excellent education and was genuinely interested in caring for my teeth and gum health. Clare was very warm and friendly but also extremely professional and put me at ease. The receptionists were also extremely welcoming. I would definitely recommend Bethcar Dental Practice

I would not hesitate in recommending Bethcar Dental Practice. The service my family and I have received has been outstanding. The ladies on reception are very helpful and friendly and go above and beyond to provide excellent customer service. Dr Laura Wedge and her assistant are very professional. They have provided excellent dental and aesthetic services. Laura’s calm and patient manner helped to calm my anxiety and gave me the confidence to ahead with procedures, and she always does a wonderful job. I was particularly impressed when I received a reply to a message sent on social media on a Sunday evening to arrange an emergency appointment for my daughter the following morning. Thank you Bethcar Dental!

I have been registered with this practice for a number of years and cannot praise them enough. The receptionists are always polite, helpful and informative and the staff are second to none. I have recently had some extensive work carried out by my Dentist (Laura Wedge) and I cannot fault my experience in any way. Both Laura and her dental nurse (Natalie) are highly competent at what they do and are also fun to be in the company of which actually makes going to the dentist a pleasure. I would highly recommend Bethcar Dental to anyone seeking a dentist as there are none better in my opinion

We have just joined the practice after numerous let downs from our previous dentist. WOW! We were greeted by lovely,smiling receptionists and a friendly environment. When we saw our dentist (Laura Wedge),both her and the nurse were so kind to our children and letting them see everything and explaining it all. They were patient and made it all fun. My husband and I left feeling reassured we were receiving the best dental care and we both had a very clear understanding of what was what. I cannot recommend enough!

Treatment Benefits

Benefits Of Gummy Smile Treatment

Non-surgical treatment for gummy smiles is a fast and effective cosmetic procedure that will enhance confidence in your smile.


Benefits include:


Improved Aesthetics

Gummy smile treatment can improve the appearance of a gummy smile by reducing the amount of gum tissue that is visible when smiling. This can lead to a more aesthetically pleasing smile and increased self-confidence.


Minimally Invasive

Gummy smile treatment is a minimally invasive procedure that involves a few small injections. There is no downtime required, and most people can resume their normal activities immediately after the procedure.

Long-Lasting Results

The benefits of  gummy smile treatment can last for several months, with results typically lasting between 3 to 6 months. As the effects of the Botox wear off, the procedure can be repeated to maintain the desired results.
