Technology has always played a significant part in the advancement of dental health care. For instance, X-rays and biocompatible materials (like composite resin) have been a routine part of dentistry for as long as they’ve been available. Today, the same is true for advanced laser technology. Using the innovative BIOLASE® laser, which is specially-calibrated to accomplish a variety of types of dental treatments at our North Hollywood office, we can help improve, restore, and preserve your smile with greater precision and comfort than traditional methods.
One of the more common dental treatments that utilize lasers is professional teeth-whitening, which involves using a safe but powerful solution to erase stains and brighten your tooth structure. Once the solution is applied, we can use the laser to stimulate it, causing it to actively erase your teeth stains faster and with more pronounced results. Laser teeth-whitening makes it possible to significantly brighten your smile in just a single visit to our office.
Periodontal Cleaning and Maintenance
Next to teeth-whitening, soft tissue treatments are also common applications for dental laser treatment. For instance, periodontal cleaning and maintenance, such as scaling and root planing, can also be accomplished more comfortably and with less trauma to surrounding tissues thanks to BIOLASE®. Compared to more traditional periodontal treatments, laser treatment ensures that your gums can heal properly and that your risks of more severe periodontal disease are properly mitigated.
Cosmetic Gum Contouring
Besides gum disease, lasers are also a popular way to perform cosmetic gum contouring. Traditionally, the procedure is designed to correct excessive gum tissues by trimming them away with the use of a scalpel. While effective, the comfort and results of your procedure are significantly enhanced when it’s performed with our advanced laser rather than a traditional scalpel.
