The practice of cosmetic dentistry involves keeping up-to-date with advanced technology that enhances the efficiency and effectiveness of procedures. One example of the newest technologies within cosmetic dentistry is dental lasers. With care that is virtually painless, minimally invasive, and targets a variety of dental issues, laser dentistry helps bring beautiful smiles to patients.
Proven and Safe
Laser dentistry utilizes light beams to eliminate bacteria that cause disease. When removing decay or cleaning gums, dental lasers remove tissue gently and encourage new cells to grow. Laser procedures are backed by research that proves they are safe and often accompanied by a shorter recovery time. Patients do not have to worry about a painful or uncomfortable sensation when receiving laser dentistry treatment.
Dr. Chris Stevens utilizes laser technology for several procedures, including:
• Diagnosing diseases
• Treating hard tissue, such as bone, dentin, and tooth enamel
• Treating soft tissue, such as gums, lips, and tongue
Lasers also provide the ability to accurately detect cavities and tooth decay. Major restoration work or having cavities filled can be accomplished with lasers. Addressing problems related to soft tissue such as gum disease comes is associated with increased accuracy, less pain, minimized bleeding, and improved recovery.
Additional Benefits of Laser Treatment
Treating patients with laser dentistry includes the following benefits:
• Sealing deep periodontal pockets
• Eliminating bleeding
• Reducing loose teeth
• Cauterizing gums during treatment
• Regenerating ligament tissue and bone
• Enhanced recovery success
