Examples of Laser Dentistry Uses
- Gum Disease Treatment | Here is where a dental laser can shine! In years past, to remedy gum disease, highly invasive gum surgery was required. Now, a dental laser can eliminate infection in the tissue.
- Biopsy or Lesion Removal | A dental laser can be used to remove a small piece of soft tissue to have it tested for cancer at our facility in Philpot. Using laser dentistry is far less invasive than traditional methods. A dental laser can also be used to treat canker sores.
- Teeth Whitening | Laser dentistry is an amazing teeth whitener! Yes, a dental laser is part of the Zoom! teeth whitening procedure. You will be amazed at how white your teeth can be, thanks to laser dentistry.
Gentle Tooth and Gumline Contouring
Do your teeth seem too short? Or your smile too “gummy?” Your teeth may actually be the proper length, but they’re covered with too much gum tissue. This minor problem of gum overgrowth can be easily and comfortably resolved with the use of a soft tissue laser and laser gum recontouring.
First, an anesthetic gel will be placed on your gums for total comfort, and then the tissue is sculpted with the laser. The laser seals the tissue as it goes, promoting quick healing. Gum contouring returns your teeth to the appropriate proportions and your gums to an aesthetically pleasing shape.
Tooth contouring can artfully and conservatively make your teeth more even. Using tooth contouring we can quickly and painlessly improve your appearance and create a more harmonious smile by reshaping chipped or misaligned tooth edges.
