Dental Laser Treatments
White Smiles Family Dentistry in Spring Lake Park, MN, is certified to treat patients with laser technology for a range of conditions. Lasers have proven beneficial in removing old tissue and promoting the growth of healthy new tissue, and dentists throughout the nation have been using this effective technology for over a decade. Find out how our laser treatments can help you. You may already know that lasers are concentrated light of different frequencies. They work
with your body to provide a less invasive, and typically safer, alternative to surgical procedures or treatments that are chemically enhanced. Patients who receive laser treatments often experience a number of benefits, from quicker healing times to less pain and swelling. Of course, each person is unique, and it’s important to talk with your dentist first to see if laser treatments are right for you.
Our laser treatments can address the following conditions, and more:
Tooth Decay – Lasers can effectively remove decay from within a tooth and then prepare it for a
Curing – We use lasers to cure (harden) fillings once they’ve been placed.
Periodontal Diseases – We’ve found lasers to be highly effective in reshaping the gums, as well
as in removing bacteria, making them a great tool for treating gum disease.
Biopsy – Lasers can remove a small piece of tissue with precision for cancer testing.
Whitening – The peroxide solution we use is activated by lasers, providing a highly effective
means of giving you a bright smile.
At White Smiles Family Dentistry, we regularly recommend laser treatments for our patients who are uncomfortable around drills. Please understand that laser treatments aren’t right for everyone; we will be happy to discuss this option with you to see whether or not you’re a good candidate for laser dental treatments.
We always take into account your preferences and your conditions before making our recommendations. We are here to help you with your gum
treatment, teeth whitening, or other treatments, whether they involve lasers or more traditional approaches.
