A new procedure on the market has been gaining attention lately, called the GUMS procedure
, short for Gingival Uniformity Modulation System. It’s actually not a brand-new technology, but rather an updated version of one that’s been around since the 1950s. Today, though, it’s available exclusively through Britegums Dental Spa and our partner dentist offices in New York City, so we thought it would be helpful to explain how it works in detail.
What Is GUMS?
Gingival Uniformity Modulation System (G.U.M.S) or in short call GUMS is a patented cosmetic treatment process developed by Britegums founder Dr. Robert Stanley, DDS. His impetus to discover a successful treatment came from his many patients suffering from gingival hyperplasia or excessive gum tissue…
Benefits Of The Procedure:
A great smile can give you confidence and assurance, especially in personal or professional settings. If you’re embarrassed to show off your pearly whites in public or get nervous when speaking to an attractive co-worker, then it may be time to consider some teeth-whitening options. Whitening your teeth isn’t just a luxury; it could actually help boost self-esteem and make you feel more outgoing. Luckily, there are several cosmetic dentistry procedures that are simple, affordable, and accessible. One of these procedures is called the Gums Uniformity Modulation System (GUMS
) developed by Britegums founders Drs. Stanley and Robert Stanley, are both certified cosmetic dentists with more than 50 years of combined experience providing smiles for patients from around the world.

Most gum treatments today only tackle inflamed gums, but the GUMS procedure
can also help with the recession, thinning, or discoloration. With G.U.M.S., your dentist will go back in time to when your teeth and gums were healthy, then they’ll use a laser to create microscopic holes that stimulate new growth four times faster than regular methods. It’s not just for cosmetic reasons—thicker and healthier gums are less likely to bleed or become infected, so you’ll notice an improvement in your smile almost immediately after treatment begins.
Britegums patented Gingival Uniformity Modulation System procedure is revolutionary in that it allows you to get not only whiter teeth, but also straighter and less sensitive teeth. And while these are big benefits on their own, some patients choose to go even further with cosmetic treatments. For example, if your teeth have been darkened by years of drinking coffee or tea, we can perform a whitening treatment with Zoom! Whitening. Patients love that it’s fast and convenient—but more importantly, they love that it works! No matter what kind of procedure you choose for yourself, Britegums can help you out every step of the way.
