Gum Shaping – Lasers are used to reshape and/or remove excess gum tissue for both esthetic and health reasons. Removing excessive tissue helps create a healthy foundation for new dental crowns.
Tooth Sensitivity – There’s nothing worse than biting in to your favorite ice-cream only to experience a shooting pain in a tooth. Laser dentistry can help with tooth sensitivity by sealing the tubules which will eliminate or decrease sensitivity.
