Cosmetic Laser Dentistry
At the office of Advanced Dentistry of Mohegan Lake, our dentists use lasers for cosmetic procedures such as:
- Gum recontouring
Although we often think of our teeth as the stars of our smile show, gums play an important supporting role. Literally, they support our teeth, but they also help define the shape and size of our teeth. If you have overgrown gums, your teeth might seem small. If this is the case, we might recommend a gingivectomy, removing gum tissue to make your teeth look larger, but if your teeth are actually short, we might build them up with porcelain veneers.
Gum recontouring helps ensure that the gums are evenly balanced on your teeth. An uneven gumline can make your smile look unhealthy or make straight teeth look crooked.
Preserving Your Oral Health
General dentistry procedures using lasers include:
- Gum disease treatment
Lasers can be used in these procedures for their many benefits. They result in quicker procedures, more comfortable procedures, and, in some cases, better control of bacteria. Controlling bacteria reduces the risk of infection and speeds healing.
The Benefits of Laser Dentistry
The use of a laser for dental procedures enjoys a number of benefits including:
- Minimally invasive
- Generally do not require stiches
- May eliminate the need for anesthesia
- Do not harm surrounding tissue
- Reduce the risk of infection
- Encourage tissue regeneration and heal faster
Our dentists strive to provide every patient with the least invasive, most effective method of treatment available. When you come to our office for your initial consultation, Dr. George Sepiashvili or Dr. Wanda Mejia will listen to your concerns, and help you determine if laser dentistry is the ideal option for you.
