Laser dentistry is an effective way of carrying out minor surgical procedures. Our dental laser can treat hard and soft tissues, providing our patients with a more comfortable treatment solution.
Our dental laser can be used in a number of situations. For example if you have your teeth whitened, it will activate the whitening gel, helping it to penetrate your teeth more effectively. We might suggest using laser dentistry for gum treatments, as the energy of a dental laser helps to sterilise infected gums and can remove badly damaged tissue while leaving healthy tissues intact. Another way we can use laser dentistry is to correct a smile that might be slightly gummy, by carefully shaping the gums to create a more pleasing appearance.
With laser dentistry, it’s often unnecessary to use dental anaesthetic and treatment can be quicker and much more comfortable. Afterwards, any healing is faster, usually with fewer side effects such as swelling or bleeding.
Laser dentistry is extremely safe, providing excellent results without the side-effects associated with a conventional dental drill.
