Laser Dentistry and Procedures-We want to offer you a painless solution to multiple conditions so you can feel sexy once again!
Laser Treatment Options
Traditional dentistry practices have taken a back seat to a new approach that is known as laser dentistry. This treatment option is less painful and more precise than a traditional procedure could ever hope to be. This popular, new dentistry style uses intense beams of light that are projected by a dental laser. These lasers can be used for multiple treatments such as:
- Soft tissue shaping and removal
- Fever blisters
- Canker sores
- Gum Procedures
- Periodontal disease
- Gingivectomy for a gummy smile
- And more!
The use of laser dentistry was deemed safe by the FDA in 1990. After this, many cosmetic dentists have incorporated the use of laser treatments in their common procedures to reduce:
- Length of recovery
The best part about the use of laser dentistry is that they damage less tissue than original dental procedures do which can eliminate a majority of pain and discomfort that our clients will experience. To find out if your procedure can be handled with our dental laser, schedule a complimentary consultation today!

Ways Dental Lasers can be Utilized in Dental Procedures
There are various ways that dental lasers can be used such as:
- Gum Contouring/Sculpting- For this procedure, laser dentistry can be used to dissolve soft tissue in order to expose more of your natural tooth, remove soft tissue folds that are caused by denture wear and are uncomfortable, and to reshape soft tissue to make your gummy smiles become more attractive. In addition to that, this procedure can also correct uneven gum height which can give your gums and teeth a more uniform and softer appearance.
- Teeth Whitening-Lasers can speed up your teeth whitening process by increasing the productivity of the particles in the bleaching solution.
- Removal of Benign Tumors-You can painlessly have your benign tumors removed from the soft tissues areas inside your mouth with a dental laser.
- Biopsy-If you have suspicious areas in the soft tissue, a precise biopsy can be taken with a dental laser
How are Dental Laser Procedures Performed?
There are different types of lasers that have been designed to treat different dental conditions. Each laser will use a different wavelength of light which will indicate its best use. The most common lasers in dental procedures are-
- Carbon dioxide lasers
- Diode lasers
These lasers are typically used to treat soft tissue dental problems.
Our cosmetic dentists will decide which type of laser is best to use after conducting an examination, reviewing your X-rays, and talking with you about your goals. You will be provided with special glasses to protect your eyes since the laser is very bright.
Last dental procedures will take less time than traditional treatments would, lead to less anxiety among clients, and are less painful. If you are ready to improve your smile with the use of laser dentistry, schedule your consultation today!
