Our Reno cosmetic dentist incorporates lasers into many of our treatments because these devices are safe, noiseless, and increase our patients’ comfort. Our laser dentist uses advanced laser dentistry technology to improve the quality of our patients’ time at the dentist.
Laser Gum Recontouring
The way your gums look affect the overall appearance of your smile. Healthy, pink gums are appealing, but some people are unhappy with the amount of gum tissue around their teeth. In these cases, the teeth can appear short and square, and a gummy smile may mean the teeth are overshadowed.
Using a soft-tissue laser, our dentist can precisely target areas of your gum tissue for removal. Because of the focused beams of the laser, only the gum tissue our dentist wants to remove is actually removed, and the surrounding tissue is not damaged.
Our laser dentist can create a symmetrical, appealing gumline using our soft-tissue laser. The laser dentistry procedure is painless and the laser prevents your gums from bleeding.
Laser Treatment for Gum Disease
Lasers can treat gum disease by eliminating bacteria from beneath your gums.
Healthy gums hug the contours of your teeth and protect your tooth roots from bacteria. Poor oral hygiene, especially irregular flossing, allows bacteria to make their way below your gumline. As infection progresses, your gums pull away from your teeth and form pockets. Our dentist may use laser dentistry treatment to kill the bacteria on your tooth roots and gums.
Why Choose a Laser Dentist?
There are several benefits to choosing a laser dentist, including:
- Eliminates bleeding
- Suture free
- Precise, non-invasive removal of tissue
- Sterilizes area by killing bacteria
Our practice is committed to incorporating only the technology and equipment of the greatest benefit to our patients. During your routine cleaning and exam, we can tell you whether laser dentistry can be used for your oral health.
