What Is Laser Dentistry? 

Laser dentistry is a method we use to provide quality care for all patients. Our specialized tools focus modified light beams in such a way that makes the drill an obsolete dental relic. Lasers allow dentists to offer noninvasive care even for more complex conditions. 

Are Lasers Safe? 

Lasers are incredibly safe for several reasons. First, the modified light rays only affect one type of tissue at a time. This means, as we recontour or whiten your teeth, your tongue, gums, and lips will be unaffected. 

Secondly, lasers are noninvasive. There is no slicing, cutting, or drilling involved as we use lasers to remove plaque and tartar with ease. 

Lastly, because of their noninvasive nature, lasers don’t cause pain. This is wonderful news for those nervous of using anesthesia or painkillers during their appointments. In fact, only in rare cases will a patient ask for sedatives during laser, and if they do, it’s usually a result of dental phobia, not pain. 

What Are Common Laser Dentistry Procedures? 

At Coliseum Dental we use WaterLase™ lasers, which give us supreme versatility. 

Gummy Smile Treatment 

If your smile reveals more gum than you care for, consider gummy smile surgery. With lasers, our team can reshape your gum line, so you can feel confident in your smile anywhere you go. 

Gum Surgery 

Fighting periodontal disease sometimes comes down to surgery, which use to rely on scalpels and stitches. By using lasers, we can safely remove infected tissues without making you bleed uncontrollably!  

Teeth Whitening 

Laser teeth whitening has the ability to brighten smiles by up to eight shades! Whitening is a multistep procedure. Here’s what to expect: 

1.     Notation of your current teeth color  

2.     Cleaning and polishing of each tooth 

3.     Isolation of your teeth and soft tissues 

4.     Hydrogen peroxide application 

5.     Laser activation 

The end result is a Hollywood smile that will be the envy of any passersby.
