Laser dentistry uses an intensive light beam rather than manual instruments to perform dental procedures. Precise and easy to control, your dentist can efficiently and quickly address dental issues without the need for anesthesia or intimidating tools.

What can laser dentistry treat?

Laser dentistry from our Fircrest office can be used to address many dental issues, including the treatment of gum disease or root canal infection, the removal of excess gum tissue, contouring gums, and bone tissue, hardening dental resin in fillings or dental bonding, and reducing the pain from mouth sores.
