Whenever possible, cosmetic dentist Dr. Gregory Wright employs the newest technology to help you achieve a brilliant smile. Among other methods, Dr. Wright uses laser dentistry to reveal your beautiful teeth and address oral health issues such as gum disease.

What is Laser Dentistry?

Laser dentistry is used in many different dental procedures. Lasers are sometimes used to cure restorative resins to make them resistant to breakage from chewing pressure. They are also used during more intensive procedures such as gum contouring. Laser dentistry is quieter than traditional dentistry methods, making it a nice alternative for those who are apprehensive about dental appointments because of unpleasant sounds.

Lasers can also be used in restorative dental processes to promote the growth of healthy gum tissue. They can also be used to help in the treatment of infections due to root canal complications. Laser dentistry provides a safe option for giving you healthier teeth and gums.

Dr. Wright utilizes lasers most often in cosmetic gum contouring procedures to gently reveal the teeth that are hiding behind gums that are too large. Often, gum contouring is used in conjunction with porcelain veneers, to help the veneers achieve a more natural look as they rest along the gum line. Laser dentistry facilitates faster healing and results in a lower occurrence of infection after a procedure is completed.

What Other Technologies Are Used?

Dr. Wright and Dr. Heron use some of the most useful and innovative dental technologies available. Through the use of intraoral cameras, images taken of the inside of your mouth using a tiny camera are sent to a computer monitor so that you can see exactly what the dentist sees. This helps you to more fully understand the recommendations we make at the time of your appointment.
