Laser dentistry involves the use of dental lasers to complete dental treatments more comfortably, quickly, and effectively. At our dental practice, we are dedicated to always providing you with the best possible dental care. Our dentist and dental team continuously update their education and our office to provide you with a more pleasant and efficient dental visit. We are proud to offer laser dental treatment to ensure that your dental experience is comfortable and positive.

Lasers can be used for a number of dental treatments. During your visit, our dentist may recommend laser dentistry to:

  • Treat periodontal disease by removing bacteria and infected tissue
  • Cure (harden) a dental filling
  • Remove the decayed or damaged portion of a tooth
  • Treat cold sores and canker sores
  • Speed up teeth whitening
  • Recontour the gum line

There are many benefits of laser dentistry. Many treatments completed with a dental laser are very comfortable and may not require the use of an anesthetic. Dental lasers also shorten treatment time and healing time and decrease the risk of infection following treatment. In addition, lasers minimize bleeding both during and after treatment, and because they are very precise, we are able to treat the targeted area without affecting nearby healthy tissues.
