Laser dentistry procedures are one of the fastest growing areas in both general and cosmetic dentistry. The use of lasers in dentistry is relatively new, but their proven safety and effectiveness has enabled our cosmetic dentists to provide less invasive, highly targeted solutions to a wide variety of patients.

We utilize a low impact soft tissue laser, which allows our dentists to target specific problems without impacting surrounding tissue. This reduces both surgical and recovery times, and makes laser dentistry an attractive option for many of our patients.

If you want to learn the benefits of laser dentistry for yourself, please call (914) 526-2144 or email Advanced Dentistry of Mohegan Lake today for an appointment with a Westchester County cosmetic dentist.

Cosmetic Laser Dentistry

At the office of Advanced Dentistry of Mohegan Lake, our dentists use lasers for cosmetic procedures such as:

  • Gum recontouring
  • Gingivectomy

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
  • Frenectomy

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.
