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.

The cleanliness of the office and the professionalism of the dental team made me feel very comfortable at my appointment and well taken care of. Thank you very much to Dr. Katz and her wonderful team.

Seeing Dr. Katz and her caring staff makes going to the dentist almost palatable 🤪. Dr. Katz is kind, compassionate, and a very good dentist. She’s not going for the money grab and is conservative in her treatment. Would highly recommend this practice.

I had Invisalign done by Dr. Katz and the results are next to magnificent! In 6 months' time, I have absolutely straight teeth and a smile I am proud of! I couldn’t have done it without the amazing dedication of Dr. Katz!
