Nonsurgical Gum Treatments in New York City

If you want to make sure your smile is top-notch for that special someone, consider improving the appearance of your gums. Receding gums can create gaps and holes—giving the illusion of missing teeth—while too much gum tissue can hide your teeth and make your smile appear smaller. Thankfully, there are non-surgical solutions to treat a gummy smile, loss of gum tissue, and gum recession! Treatments like Gumoflage, Gum Gap Restoration, and Pinhole Gum Rejuvenation can solve your smiling woes.

Gummy Smile

Many patients suffer from “gummy” smiles; this condition occurs when you have over-exposed gum tissue that causes your teeth to appear shorter than normal. A gummy smile can lead to a lack of confidence and an unwillingness to show off your smile! With our Gumoflage procedure, Dr. Rozenberg will reposition the upper lip by making a slight incision—stopping the patient from pulling up their lip to expose their upper gums. As a result, a fuller and less “gummy” smile is created with minimal downtime and recovery!

Gaps Between Teeth

While some patients may suffer from over-exposed gum tissue, others tend to lose gum tissue between teeth. Gum Gap Restoration can be the non-surgical solution to gum recession! During the procedure, Restylane®—a hyaluronic, acid-based dermal filler—is injected directly into the gums to provide immediate results. Best of all, there is no extended period of downtime or recovery after your procedure, unlike surgical treatments.

Gum Recession

The latest treatment for gum recession is Pinhole Gum Rejuvenation. During this procedure, a tiny specialized pin-like tool is used to create a small hole. The tool is then used to slide your gums over the area where gum recession has occurred. Finally, collagen strips are inserted under the gum to keep them in place. The pinhole will disappear within a day and you can resume your day-to-day activities almost immediately!

By correcting your over-exposed and receding gums, you’ll be on the way to a more confident smile! Dr. Lana Rozenberg and her staff look forward to answering any questions you may have about Gumoflage, Gum Gap Restoration, and Pinhole Gum Rejuvenation. Contact us at our New York office at 212.265.7724, or you may request an appointment online for a personal consultation with Dr. Rozenberg.
