What Is A Gum Lift?

A "gummy smile" occurs when the upper portion of your tooth is hidden by extra gum tissue. At Maison BE, a gum lift procedure can improve the smile by reducing the extra soft tissue and showing more of your teeth. Gum sculpting can not only give you a more aesthetically appealing smile, but it could also improve your oral health by reducing places where bacteria usually hides. This lowers your risk of developing gum disease, cavities, and oral infections. Schedule an appointment with Dr. Ellen Katz or Dr. Bridget Glazarov in New York, NY to learn more about cosmetic gum sculpting.

What to Expect with a Gum Lift

At Maison BE, gum contouring is an in-office dental procedure done with local anesthesia. Options for sedation may be used if you have fears or anxiety about visiting the dentist. Before the procedure, your teeth and gums will be professionally cleaned and dried. Your dentist will then use a special laser tool to cut away excess gum tissue to reveal a higher gumline. The laser tool seals the soft tissue to minimize bleeding during the treatment. In most cases, gum contouring will be done in just one appointment. Once your procedure is done, we will provide recovery instructions before you are sent home. Your gums might be swollen for a few weeks; however, with a proper oral care routine, your gum tissue will begin to heal.

An exceptional dental experience like none other. From the moment I walked in the door until I left, I was treated like gold. The staff is warm and inviting. My hygienist, Jade was personable and put me at ease during my new patient experience. Dr. Ellen helped me create a plan of care based on my goals and what's best best for my oral health. The office is fabulous and it's a boutique experience I cannot recommend enough. This dental studio is like none other and I am so pleased to be a new patient at such a wonderful and caring dental studio. They have added touches and options that set them apart from all others and they have raised the bar on what an amazing patient experience is supposed to feel like. I speak confidently and with experience writing this review as I'm a nurse and they know what it means to make it all about the patient. They have thought of everything and then things that make sense that no other dental office has offered during an office visit. My under eye patches were soothing and my favorite part! I truly feel that everyone has my best interest at heart and insures I feel like a VIP while at Maison Be. They sent me home with a beautiful bag of goodies which made my day. I cannot wait to wear my new sweatshirt and feel apart of the Maison Be family as I am proud to represent such an exceptional dental studio. This women owned business has knocked it out of the park!!!!! I am pleased to support these women as they build a brand unlike none other. Thank you everyone who made my first experience one that I will not forget. I can't wait to go back and who says that about the dentist?! Fabulous and fun!!

Have been looking for a new dentist since i moved to the city and after some research and a TikTok post(haha) i decided to try out Maison Be. To start off the appointment making process was so smooth for a new patient, didn't have to call just made an appointment online; the front desk staff is very very organized, so welcoming and kind, very short wait and even offered me a beverage while i waited. The hygienist(completely forgot her name but i believe it starts with a J) and Dr (Ellen Katz) were both so sweet and personable. They both made me feel so comfortable with the amenities provided AND checked in with me while they were checking and cleaning my teeth. I really appreciate the service and visit I received because as a person of color I feel a lot of offices aren't as welcoming and genuine about the care they give me. So glad I found my new dentist! Thank you so much!!!

The doctor has the most personable approach, remembering me every time. Had my first ever filling (I was nervous) and they made me so comfortable. It also was super quick and efficient. As a former dentist hater/avoider, they have truly turned my views on the dentist around.

Dr. Ellen is the best. She had a comprehensive understanding of what I needed to get taken care of and she provided a plan that would work effectively to ensure I get the results I want. She was extremely attentive and performed every procedure smoothly with great results and zero pain! I recommend her for all dental needs and trust her to do what’s best for the patient because of her vast experience and academic knowledge. The experience at the office was 5 stars, it’s a beautiful place and felt like I was at a luxury spa!

About Us
How much does a gum lift cost?

The total cost of a gum lift can vary from one patient to another due to a variety of factors. Our staff will listen to your concerns during your original appointment in order to create a treatment plan that is completely catered to your unique needs. Once this plan has been agreed upon, we can provide a more accurate estimate of the total price.

Are gum lifts painful?

Thanks to our combination of state-of-the-art equipment and an incredibly experienced team, our patients don't typically feel any pain or discomfort during the procedure. However, afterwards, there may be some lingering discomfort or irritation for a few days.

Can I eat after a gum lift?

Not for a while. We recommend sticking to a liquid diet for the first few days after receiving a gum lift. This gives your gums time to heal before you put any additional stress on them.
