The Future of Dentistry – Lasers!
Our practice features Picasso™ laser technology for safe and effective treatments that are virtually painless! FDA-approved, the laser produces results that only a few years ago would have been considered miraculous. Many procedures that previously required scalpels or incisions can now be completed with the laser, resulting in faster recovery times and virtually no post-op discomfort.
The laser can be used for both cosmetic treatments and functional ones. For example, much of our crown lengthening is done with the laser. We can use the laser to gain better access to repair a tooth broken below the gum line. Many patients have teeth that have been worn down over time, so they look short. In that case, or when a patient has uneven gums or too much gum showing in their smile, we can re-contour the gums using the laser. This procedure, known as a “smile lift,” can uncover a spectacular smile!
The laser can also be used to clean and re-contour inflamed tissue around crowns for better long-term results, as well as treat painful canker sores, cold (herpetic) sores, and mouth ulcers with instant relief.
