worried about teeth

I am quite worried about the possibitlity of having part of my top gum by one of my upper teeth cut at the dentist, I am scared of the pain and how it will look afterwards till it heals. I keep thinking about it constantly and worrying about how inflamed the gum looks to other people. Only one person has asked me what is wrong with my gum and why its red but I am quite self conscious as it probably shows when I smile or talk to people. I just hope I can get a few days off work after the procedure of cutting my gum as I would hate to be at work with a bloody gum. Maybe it sounds silly but I am self conscious about how it will look and how it looks now.
