Miami-Area Laser Dentistry
by an Experienced Dentist at Gables Perfect Smile
Laser dentistry involves the use of highly concentrated light energy to produce predictable and powerful results. A full range of procedures can be performed at Gables Perfect Smile, near Miami, through laser dentistry. Our laser dentists have advanced training and extensive experience in a variety of laser dentistry procedures, including treatment of tooth decay, root canal therapy, gum contouring, and more.
At Gables Perfect Smile, we utilize the Waterlase® MD laser for many or our laser dentistry procedures. The Waterlase® MD dental laser combines a spray of water and YSGG laser energy and can be used to perform a variety of dental procedures. Using the Waterlase® MD laser provides many benefits when compared to a traditional dental drill. Procedures can often be performed without the need for local anesthetic, which helps to reduce patient anxiety. The Waterlase® MD virtually eliminates the vibration, pressure, and heat that are typical of a traditional drill, and bleeding, swelling, and post-operative pain are greatly reduced. The Waterlase® MD laser is also much more precise than a traditional dental drill. If you live in the Miami area and would like to learn more about laser dentistry performed by our dentists with the Waterlase® MD laser, contact Gables Perfect Smile to schedule a consultation.
Laser dentistry techniques are used by our dentists for many common procedures. The Waterlase® MD laser can replace the dental drill for the removal of cavities and tooth decay, as well as the preparation of a tooth for root canal therapy. It can also be used to buff the surface layer of a tooth that will receive a porcelain veneer. The laser is essential for soft tissue procedures such as cosmetic gums surgery. During this procedure, our doctors use the laser for precise contouring of excess gum tissue to treat an overly “gummy” smile. These are just a few of the procedures that are made more effective and efficient with the use of the Waterlase® MD laser.
By utilizing a laser, we make dental care much more convenient, comfortable, and effective for our patients. If you would like to learn more about the dental procedures and treatments at our Miami-area practice that are performed using laser dentistry, contact us and schedule a consultation today.
