What Is Laser Dentistry?

Tags: Cosmetic Dentistry, Sedation Dentistry, tooth whitening

The word ‘LASER’ is an acronym for Light Amplification by Stimulated Emission of Radiation. A laser device emits a powerful, highly-concentrated beam of light. (Didn’t we all love the amazing laser weapons in ‘Star Wars?) Lasers are used in hundreds of applications in almost every California industry including communications, researching, manufacturing, entertainment and medicine.

Lasers are now used in some technologically-advanced Los Angeles dental practices on both hard (tooth) and soft (gum) tissue. Lasers allow Los Angeles cosmetic dentists a degree of precision that was previously impossible.

How do lasers benefit our Los Angeles dental patients?

Fewer stitches (some surgical procedures require no sutures)Shorter healing timeDecreased chance of infectionLess damage to surrounding tissue/boneIncreased patient comfort – anesthesia is often unnecessary

California dentists use lasers in crown lengthening, decay detection, bacteria removal in root canals, gum recontouring, biopsy, lesion removal, and tooth whitening.

If you are interested in any of these procedures, call Century City Aesthetic Dentistry at 877-703-7062. Dr. Bill Dorfman has been providing unsurpassed general and cosmetic dentistry since 1985.
