Abstract: Gingival smile is considered when gingival exposure of 3 mm or more is visible during smile. Depending on person personality and self-acceptance the gummy smile can lead to aesthetic discomfort while smiling. Depending on the etiology, different treatments may be indicated. However, not all patients are willing to undergo longer or invasive treatments, and in these cases, botulinum toxin - type A (BTA) may be a treatment option. This manuscript reports the case of a patient with a 4 mm gingival smile.
