The emergence of laser dentistry is having a positive impact on the dental industry for a variety of reasons.
As a patient, it means less invasive treatment (which is always a bonus), and for dentists it means more precise and faster treatment times.
With laser dentistry, precision plays a huge role in successful treatment.
At Shining Smiles, we’re able to pinpoint very specific areas on teeth or gums that need treatment, and then use a laser to fix those issues without damaging the surrounding gums or tooth enamel.
How does it work?
A laser is used to correct a wide variety of dental problems involving the teeth, gums, and soft tissue areas. Laser dentistry is minimally-invasive, and can solve common dental issues in a gentler way, when compared with more traditional surgical methods.
What procedures use a laser?
Dental lasers have broad application. Here are a few of the most common treatments we offer with laser dentistry:
- Crown lengthening
- Cavity detection
- Fixing a "gummy smile"
- Nerve regeneration
- Teeth whitening
And the list goes on. If you’re looking at having any type of dental work in the near future, considering laser dentistry is a smart move.
Ready for more precise, minimally-invasive dental treatment?
Our goal is to serve our patients by keeping their teeth and gums healthy. Quite simply, laser dentistry helps us to do that better.
