Laser Dentistry Procedures
Dr. Tabib and Dr. Mello currently have several laser devices that they have chosen to incorporate into the practice's technology. We offer those technologies that offer the greatest advantages to our guests in the following procedures and others:
- Gum lift/gum re-contouring: Reduces excessive gum tissue and creates a symmetrical gum line
- Crown lengthening: Also called "tooth lengthening," repositions the gum line to reveal more tooth surface
- Enamel contouring: Reshapes the tooth enamel to improve its overall appearance
- Periodontal treatment: Reduces bacteria harbored within infected gum pockets
Laser dentistry is an ideal way to re-shape and re-contour gum tissue and enamel. An uneven gum line or excess gum tissue can make you feel less confident about the appearance of your smile. Teeth that are uneven or misshapen can also affect the overall attractiveness of your smile. Laser energy ablates the tissue painlessly, and allows our dentists to very precisely target tissue without causing excessive bleeding. The laser cauterizes as it cuts, reducing bleeding and sterilizing the area as it works.
Benefits of Laser Dentistry
Dr. Tabib and Dr. Mello have spent their professional careers honing their skills and learning which technologies are the most beneficial to their patients. Laser technology has enabled dentists to perform procedures that are vastly less invasive than scalpel-based procedures of the past. The benefits of laser dentistry include:
- No scalpels
- No sutures
- Bleeding is minimized
- Recovery is shortened
- Sterilizes tissue surfaces
- Treats precisely targeted tissue without affecting surrounding tissue
Our dentists are personally committed to understanding your dental goals from your own perspective. They work closely with you to develop an individualized treatment plan for creating the smile of your dreams.
