Benefits of Laser Dentistry
Do you want a perfect smile? Are your teeth getting in the way of how you want to live your life? Do you want to completely change your look but are scared of the dentist? If you answered yes to any of those questions, Yaletown Laser & Cosmetic Dentistry has a great news for you! You’re not alone and you’re certainly not out of luck. More and more people are becoming conscious about how their smiles are having an effect on their lives. Whether it’s getting a big promotion, landing a dream job, or simply being friendly, teeth and smiles play a huge roll. Multiple studies have shown a distinct correlation between the amount someone smiles and his or her overall happiness. Studies have also shown that people with good teeth are generally viewed as more successful and approachable. If you are looking to improve your teeth and smile but are scared of the dentist, this is for you! Laser dentistry takes the discomfort out of dental work and puts you in control of your look!
Here are just a few procedures that can be easily and painlessly done with a laser:
Reduce the effects of cold sores and canker sores: Cold and canker sores are caused by the presence of bacteria. Laser therapy eliminates the bacteria and reduces the pain and inflammation caused by the bacteria. It also reduces the chance or recurring sores!
Expose Partially erupted wisdom teeth: Laser can help your wisdom teeth grow in properly by painlessly removing gum tissue to facilitate enough space for your teeth.
Remove muscle attachments that hinder proper movement: Laser can painlessly perform both upper and lower frenectomies. A frenectomy is the removal of naturally occurring tissue that is hindering your ability to speak or chew.
Effective treatment of gum disease: Traditionally, procedures to fight gum disease involved scalpels, stitching, and bleeding. Now you can painlessly treat your periodontal disease with laser. Even better, laser treatment requires no downtime!
Remove or reshape gum tissue: Sometimes gum tissue can overshadow our brilliant teeth. Laser “gummy smile” is a process used to expose more natural tooth structure and correct the appearance of a “gummy smile”. This process can be done painlessly and quickly and requires no downtime. Laser crown lengthening is an advanced way of lengthening the tooth or bone in specific dental situations. Laser crown lengthening is a minimally invasive treatment to repair teeth that have been broken very close to the gum line.
Speed up teeth whitening: Laser can be used to speed up the teeth whitening process drastically. The process only takes 30 minutes and teeth are 2-7 shades brighter!
Do drill fillings: Using laser to fill cavities is a painless and effective method. No use for the drill!
There are several advantages of laser dentistry. Dentists may not need to use a drill or anesthesia in some procedures, allowing patients to enjoy a more comfortable dental experience. Laser procedures are also more precise and can reduce symptoms and healing times associated with traditional therapies.
Next time you’re at your dentist’s office, ask him or her if laser dentistry is a possibility!
