Laser dentistry is being increasingly used by dentists all over the world to improve the efficiency, speed, and outcomes of numerous dental procedures.
A laser is a highly focused beam of light, used by medical professionals for altering or removing small amounts of tissue in different parts of the body. Dentistry has also taken to laser technology and is using it for removing overgrown tissues, whitening teeth, and even reshaping gums. In fact, laser dentistry might be a perfect option for younger children as well as for those patients who feel afraid or anxious about any kind of dental work.
The primary advantage of a laser is that the dentist can control the exposure duration and there is no damage to the surrounding tissues. At Smile Dental Practice, we specialize in laser dentistry and use the following two types of lasers; Hard tissue lasers and Soft tissue lasers.
